I have 2 nephews ages 10 and 8. I'd like a game that's not too heavy or complicated but has a them vs me kind of play. We have played co-ops and enjoy them but I want them to learn to work together in a game. Suggestions welcomed...

Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game - they would play as survivors, and you would play as the zombie hordes.

I have heard about this but was worried it'd be a little too complicated...

Play an RPG with you as the GM. They will have freeform choices. You can pick an easier, introductory system. And you can use some pre-made modules to easy you into the GMing role. You should be able to find a genre you like, and that the kids enjoy.

Level 7 Omega Protocol is an overlord game, but it may be too complex. Actually, maybe most overlord games may be too complex. If they were not complex, they might not need the overlord.

But if you insist, you can probably search for geeklists with the word overlord in the title, and find games.

I think Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King would fit your requirements. Also can be played pure-coop.

I love Imperial Assault. Everything you need for the campaign (11-14 missions, with alternating story and random side missions) is in the core box, for 2-3 campaigns due to the replayability factors. A lot of additional content is also available, including another full campaign and two shorter 4-mission campaigns, and a bunch of figure expansions.

(Less downtime than in Descent due to IA's alternating activations. Always play with 4 heroes regardless of the number of rebel players.)
