QuikWars & Kids?

Postby morganm » Wed Jul 14, 2010 4:37 pm

Anyone played QuikWars with kids 10 or younger? I'm thinking about using QuikWars to play some table top games with my kids. Reading over the rules; it seems simple enough but I was wondering if anyone had some real experience with QuikWars and kids.

Thanks!

As a personal experience, I wouldn't give anything to small kids that involve dice rolling. I was a cheating, whiny retard who always ended up thrashing the fun because I never rolled highs enough.

But surely kids are made of better material nowadays, so in a short: yes. It's good for starters.

I am using a slightly reduced set of rules for my six year old right now.

He is dealing with the dice just fine. Although I have made sure he does fine regardless of the dice t this point. :wink:

I would say the real question is how fast you add each concept in, measured movement, dice, etc.

Thanks for some feed back!

I was thinking of using all of the QuikWars rule set eventually but starting out easy... just using minifigs in a small skirmish. Then work up to Constructions, Controls, Vehicles, and Siege Weapons as we play more games.

When my little cousin complains about dice rolls, I just hit him. :D

Darth is friggin anal about dice rolls. He'll accuse me of cheating whenever I roll a six, and whine about not getting a reroll when it bumps something.

As such, I haven't had a game in a month. :P

I would go for it! Just be patient and let him have fun. That's it. I've successfully played some rather entertaining games with my little sister.

Hey, at least your brother plays. I haven't played an IRL brikwar in upwards of a year now.

Ok, make that three hours. I printed out the first edition Lego Wars and beat him up with a 3vs.3. It's rather entertaining to draw similarities between Brikwars and Lego Wars, and it gave me some ideas.

Well so far he loves it. We did two battles; one with castle armies and one with Star Wars armies. Picked up on the rules quick enough. First round we didn't use any siege weapons or vehicles and dabled with constructions. Second battle we used all of the QuikWars rules.

Both of us had a lot of fun. It was nice to bond over something besides video games =)

I agree, some people just take the whole video game thing too far.

its great to see that! i mean, playing Modern Warfare 2 with my dad is fun and all, but it doesn't compare to true battlefield mayham that you get with brikwars. it teachs you to build things at the highest level at that age, while having a lot of fun. legos are inspiring me to be a aeronautical engineer in the air force. hows that for a reson to do this? also, its good to see some new faces around on the forum. i havent said this yet, so i will say it now, welcome to the forums. it may feel awkward now, but you well get the feel of it. i mean im an '08 guy, very rare around here, but my post count doesn't even come close to warhead, whos an '09 guy. i'm just not available very often, but i can tell you, when you get used to it and know everyone, you kinda realize its like a family. a highly disfunctional family, yes, but a family. anyways, welcome to the forums. howdy ho! or something.
