My daughter always gets jealous on game-night when her Dads' friends come over for a little "D&D" or "A Game of Thrones". So, I want to ask those who have played "Heroscape" if it is basic enough for my seven year old daughter, She's very bright and already does well in math and reading. I wait with baited breath gulp.

Yes, verily.

More of a question of whether she'll like that kind of game or not. What kinds of things does she like?

And there are other, cheaper options than Heroscape, although if she would be happy with Heroscape, her father probably would too.

While I don't have any children of my own to make a direct assessment, I believe a 7 year old can easily grasp the basic version of the game rules (best part is eventually you can work up to the advanced rules, which aren't that much more complicated anyway, as she gets older and if she likes the game).

Yes, don't worry. My 6-year-old does just fine.

Yes..
she'll understand the game easily. As Ava said though, it's a matter if she'll like that kind of game. My son is 7 and loves wargames, dice rolling, etc. My daughter however will only occasionally play a game like this. If you're going to invest in HeroScape I'd try something similar with her first (unless of course this is a good reason for you to buy it for yourself - I know I do that kind of thing all the time).

I have a five-year-old boy who wants to play very badly and grasps some of the basic concepts, but nees a lot of help, and a nine-year-old girl who kicks tail often enough in the Master Game. I'd say a 7-year-old will understadn the game and will probably enjoy playing a game with Dad, just for the social aspects of it.

You should just explain to your children that games are for grown-ups, not little kids.

Thanks Everyone.....
Great advice! I appreciate all of your time. My daughter loves the D&D aspect of gaming, along with miniatures, and I think she'll take to this one. I just didn't want to get something that sounds easy, until you open the box and there are so many exceptions to every rule that a child gets lost. Thanks again everyone!
