My son will soon be six. I am growing very bored of his games and wanted something I am interested in. Could a six year old play this. We currently play Castle Panic and he has that down. His strategy is meh but rules wise he has it. We also play Dungeon and Kids of Catan. Hes fine with all those as well.

Memoir has rules for "Junior Generals", where you play without any of the tactics cards, only using the sector cards.

I think I played my lad at that age minus the tactics cards.

you can always implement the tactic cards after playing a while

Test
Memoir '44 can be played solo, which is essentially how I play with my 6 year old.
We play with our cards face up, and on his turn I make suggestions regarding his best moves. When it's a close call, I describe the situation to him and he calls the shots. It's loads of fun, and he loves it.
After a few games like this, he's beginning to eschew my suggestions - but that's a good thing!

"Your results are back: it's negative"......um, is that a bad thing?

Absolutely.

His strategy might be meh again for this game too, at least for the first few plays. But since he's familiar with those other games, he should find this learnable. It's definatley a great father-son game!

LOL I didn't know they had rules for Junior Generals - how brilliant is that

My eldest grandson (now 9) loves to play this game - I think we started several years back when he couldn't read (plus his primary language is French) and I had to explain the cards and what they did as he got them.

It only took about two games and he got the hang of them pretty well! (They have amazing memories at that age.) He hardly ever asks today - and he kicks my butt at times too!!!shake

My friend's son has been playing the game (and playing it well) since he turned 5, so short answer, yes.
