I've played World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game with my seven-year-old son (and his older brother) a couple of times in the past week. He's loved it, but the reading is a bit beyond him so both games were slow going once he was trying to juggle ten ability cards and remember what they did and when they could be used..

..so this morning we revisited Defenders of the Realm, a game I haven't played since the week it arrived last year. I thought its visual and thematic similarity to WoW:tAG might appeal to him, and being co-op with minimal reading required it should flow more smoothly. And it did, and (once we anchored the incredible toppling blue dragon) he had a great time.

next we played a quick couple of rounds of King Up! with my wife followed by our first play through F├╝rstenfeld which I think is neat, not a potential favourite game but it was a good time and I think it'll make a good mixed-ages game since it isn't too hard to teach to a child but there are enough decisions to keep most adult players happy.
