Which boardgame can I buy in Italy for my son who is 7 years old?
Something that can be enjoiable also when he will be a little older and something enjoiable also for me.

Please, add suggestions to this list.

Thanks

You have a lot of wargames in your collection. Is this what you're interested in? I'm very fond of the games by the Italian company Gio Games. All the rules are online at http://giogames.it/ so you can see if this fits your criteria:

Yankees & Rebels American Civil War game with divisional units. Only 2 pages of rules. Plays very quickly.

War to Axis: Warfare in Normandy WWII in Normandy. Units are battalions and companies. Only a few pages of rules.

Vive l'Empereur Napoleonics. Just reprinted. I haven't tried this one yet.

This is an excellent "lads & dads" wargame. Rules are pretty straightforward. There's also some recommended modifications for "junior generals" where you leave out some of command cards that have a lot of text.

I just checked the Days of Wonder "Euro" store, and the game is offered in English and French versions, but not Italian as far as I can tell. (Your English is great; I wasn't sure about your son.) There are some Italian support files available, e.g.,

This is one of my personal favorites. It plays quickly (45mins-1hr) and is pretty easy to learn. I taught this to my 9 year old nephew during a recent vacation. He picked it up quick (though he's a very bright kid) and loved it! He probably could have played it all day. The beauty of it is that the strategy changes with 2,3, or 4 players, despite being the same game. There are a couple of copies for sale on the game listing itself in Euro locations, for what its worth.

You proceed from a false assumption. I am a Vulcan. I have no ego to bruise.

My daughter played this with us when she was 7. With blocks you have to put on a board, but try not to be seen by the Indian, because if he sees you, you will get negative points. Abstract, but fun. laugh

Or this one, maybe with the expansion with it. My daughter could play this as well, and we all enjoy this game.

Accessible for children age 7 and also enjoyable for the adults. The base game (if possible with river) gives already lots of entertainment.

Lots of fun if you do not want to think too much.
