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]

Had another session with both boys today. We upped the rules a little and they loved it. I gave them the Brits and I took the Soviets with equal numbers on both sides. That pretty much guaranteed that I would lose, which I did to both boys. The World at War system is a lot of fun. It is action-packed which appeals to my small boys.

I'm planning on doing an actual game scenario with them next time. It will introduce them to more realistic goals.

My son Cooper is turning 5 in February. He'll be hitting the table tops (and tennis court) quite often in his future....

That's great Wayne. We didn't play with the full rules but both of them picked up on the combat procedure just fine (both the firing part and the armor taking hits off). I plan to slowly add more detail to the rules as they progress.

My son must be expecting a tactical nuke strike. He is dispersing his forces. LOL

Thanks for the pic. My son (10 years old) has aquired my afinity for wargames and has been eyeing the World at War series, so this clinches it, his eleventh birthday will be World at War gift wrapped.

ASL is a little above their Daddy's level. World at War is a little more my level of detail.

Is that a copy of the Advanced Squad Leader 2nd Edi rulebook gift wrapped and hidden under your bed waiting for your son's 10th Birthday???

That's how we do it at my house too.  Start 'em off with lite rules, and move up later.  Good to see!

It is. You must have kids yourself. He was splitting time between his T-80 tanks and his hungry hippo...while also watching kid's TV. These kids are born multi-taskers.

Is that a travel size version of the hungry hippo game in the background?
