Anyone interested in a replacement rules set for X-Wing, specifically modified for kid play (6-9ish)?

I drafted something up based on recommendations from a friend, some comments here on BGG, and my own assessment of what would be more kid-friendly.

I'd prefer not to post this to the files section unless there's some degree of interest.

I'd really love it if you post them in my geeklist:

Kid's House Rules for Games

My children are 6 and 5, and they're Star Wars fans already, as me!

I've played it a few times with my (then) 8 year old using the basic rules (no cards) but I'd love to see what you've drummed up.

I'd posted this about a year ago. You could see if there's anything here you could use for your kids.

Ok - I'll put the draft PDF up. Once it's received thorough commenting/feedback, I'll revise appropriately and pretty it up.

Is the PDF still up? I tried looking for it but didn't have any luck.

Ok, "X-Wing Junior" has been submitted to the files section for approval. It's a stripped-down version of the game specifically intended for younger or more casual gamers (err... between 6-10, I'd say).

I repurposed images from the rules made available by FFG online... I have no idea if this is acceptable or not under terms of use... I'm assuming it is, since there's many many files out there already doing this...

Cool, Eric! Just downloaded and will take a closer look later. Maybe I can squeeze in a game with my daughter this weekend to try it out.

Right on!

If I can get enough feedback from people, I'll eventually collate, revise, and make the doc more "official" and pretty looking.
