Playing World at War with my 7 year old. Okay, the rules we used were a little simplified but my kids enjoy it and it introduces them to the world of wargaming that their Daddy loves. [Picture included]

Really looking forward to getting my teeth into these games, and hopefully soon I should have some decent free time to play them.
I have had my eye on all 3 games for a while, so…Continue
