My son just turned 8 years old and he brought for himself his very first game with his grading money. As a proud gamer Dad, I thought it would be nice to see what other kids are buying out there....

First off, we like RISK. Yes there are many games out there, but when you have a Dad like me, we have alot of games already. He likes RISK, and of course he loves Transformers, and I like the fact that with 6 turns, it can be finished in about 1-1.5 hours. Just enough for a night of gaming. I was very impressed when he bagged all the pieces and put the cards in slips, just as I would. Very proud day.

Eric spent all his allowance for a long time on Cosmic Encounter. He was about eight, and hadn't played anything but chess before. We were in Great Hall Games and he bought that and I bought him Kung Fu Samurai on Giant Robot Island, and You're Bluffing. I thought he was going to be the game player, not me. How wrong I was. Now he's in the clutches of Magic: The Gathering almost exclusively, although we are learning SCRABBLE together. This week he made a list of "TOW LETTER WORDS." I think bad spelling may be a handicap?

My four-year-old gets an allowance of $4/week. We were at a small, local toy store and she saw this for $10 and really wanted it, but $10 was out of her price range. I knew we could get it for about half that at a discount store like Target, but I wanted to support the little guy so I told her if she paid $4.00, I'd pay the rest. She selected the game entirely on her own and had enough money to buy the game elsewhere, so I'm going to count it.

She loves that game- we've both easily gotten our money's worth out of it.

My six year old spent some of his birthday money on this game. Not too bad for a 6yr old.
