Axis and Allies
The kids saw my old Axis and Allies game box today and really wanted to play. So we open it up and then, while my wife distracted the 2 year old, spent nearly 3 hours sorting the pieces, setting up the game, and playing 2 full rounds. This is what the game board looked like at the end.
I helped them understand the rules and how the pieces move, and suggested most of their moves for them. But I was surprised at how long their interest lasted. For a game that’s labeled for “ages 12 and up,” I thought a 7 and 4 year old did pretty well.
