Need suggestions: RPG-like games to play w/ 9-year-old boy
I'm sure you long-time BGGers will have a better definition than "RPG-Like", but here's what I'm looking for:Recommend
I've been playing Carc H&G w/ my 9-year-old boy, and we're enjoying it. I find myself wishing there was more of a RPG aspect to it. I'd like to be taken on a spooky/adventurous/heroic (chose one or more) journey where luck is still a factor, but a bit of skill tossed in too. It doesn't have to have a fantasy theme, a sci-fi or super hero game could be just as fun. A 45 minute game is a perfect length, I think, but even 2 hours isn't bad on weekends (see, I can get mom to let him stay up 45 minutes longer on a school night
Here's what I _don't_ want: all the "theatrics" of D&D. I don't want to be the one creating the drama, I want it to come from the game. (On a side note, if you haven't watched this, you should, it's funny: http://www.cybermoonstudios.com/8bitDandD.html )
So, any suggestions what I can play with the 9-year-old (and maybe even the 7-year-old boy)?
Keep in mind that it doesn't _have_ to be the typical "fantasy dragons and elves" type game.
If the game you have in mind is already on the list, why not add a comment, with your own thoughts of why it's good?
PS - Thanks to all those that have left comments.
