Star Wars Xwing Miniatures game With my daughter
I explained the basics she picked up the simple parts of moving picking the dial.
Luckily she only damaged me. I shouldn't underestimate my opponent!
A few turns later though the fighters converged on luke and brought him down.
As soon as the game was over she asked to play again. in her words "I want to play the baddies so I can kill you daddy!"
a target lock made sure the next TIE was swiftly downed bringing a rebel victory.
She loved it, and then went into the garden and played star wars pebbles with her coloured glass beads, telling me these are the ships, and these are the cards and these are the tokens and so on. I was suprised how much she grasped. Not a master tactician, but the fun we had was worth every second of daddy daughter time!
She knew how many attack and evade dice to roll from looking at the cards and hull points too. now we need more ships!
So if you have a youngling, give it a go they may surprise you. At the least you will have a great time
