Do your kids try and emulate your game design efforts?

Ever since I started working on designing games my 5 year old son has tried to follow suit. Sometimes he just interjects ideas into my projects but then he has also come up with some humorous ideas of his own.

Today it was a game called Zappin' Trains, in which each player has a train that travels around the tracks and you try to zap the other player's train.

My personal favorite though was when he told me: "Daddy, I made a new game. You have a bunch of straws, and you throw them at someone!"

I don't have kids, but if I did, I could totally see them doing that.

Yes. My 7 year old is always drawing on paper or playing with play-doh saying he is making a game. Usually he is emulating the real games we have played.
