Planning on playing this with my five and right year old boys on thanksgiving. We haven't played it before. Any suggestions on whether we should play as is, or with modifications to make it easier? If so, which modifications areas suggested?

Ideally, their first game should be at a level where they can win or lose narrowly, even though they'll have the freedom to make some bad moves.....

Honestly it's not that hard, you should be fine.

If you want to make it a bit easier, relax the trading rules to allow more trades per turn.

My 5 and 11 yr olds loved it without any of the mods.
Try to let them decide what to do rather than take control (which i know is easy to do) - if you all lose together they can try different things to win next time. but obviously help if they ask!!

Mine loved it. :-)
