There was a game I played with my brother that involved ships moving from island to island planting flags along the way. The board was 3-dimensional and came in two halves. Each side had a plastic cannon that could shoot down flags or ships. The ships were plastic sailing ships. One side was red and the other black. There was some strategy involved in hiding behind island mouontains so your ship would not get knocked over by your opponents cannon. The first person to plant 5 flags or shoot all 5 of his opponents ships won the game. Does anyone remember this game?

Thought it was MB Broadside for a minute, but no one captured the little islands in the center of that board. Could it be some spin-off to Battleship?

The board was 3-dimensional, the islands were more like mountains and the ships moved from lagoon to lagoon. I looked up Broadsides and that was not it. Thank's for the input.
