Teaching my son - 6 years old, nearly 7 he reminds me. Wed, 28 February 2007 08:07
My son and I have played a couple of games of Battlecry.
The command system is simple enough for him to play.

I don't think we'll get into using Lore for a few years , but the basic game he can handle.

So I'm after ideas for basic scenarios , probably using the fantasy figures to capture his imagination.
Ideas , suggestions ?

thanks Smile

in the Fan Adventures you can do a filter of just Medieval adventures. That way it'll just show you the basic scenarios which your son can probably handle.

Good place to start..

How about going online together with your child and let them have a hand in creating an adventure that they will play.

It is likely they will not care too much about balance and such, but it will be fun to play what they created.

Maybe take turns placing so many land tiles and then units. Let them have fun while you direct them a bit here and there.

Enjoy!

I play with my kids, daughter 8 (almost 9) and son 5 (almost 6). We just started at Scenario 1 and played from there. My daughter, who regularly beats me (!!! Rolling Eyes) is getting quite adept at using lore. My son still does not quite get it, so we mostly play the first few scenarios over again.

I don't have any experience in playing with kids, but I remember that there was a suggestion in Memoir'44 rules that you can play with kids (Young Generals as they called them) using only Tactic Cards.
It should be much easier for them since there is no text to read on the Tactic Cards. All what they need to read (or rather remember) is the Scout card, which should be easy for them to memorize.

I think that once they get familiar with Tactic Cards you can add one Strategy Card per game to let them memoraize their effect easily.
I think that after first few games, when they will understand how Tactic Cards works it will be best to add Green, Blue and Red Baners and later some more sophistaceted cards like Leadership, Darken The Sky, Mounted Charge, etc...

Hi all
After our first 3 games of Agincourt , where he wanted to play as French as they got all the Cavalry , he won all 3 games!

Little bugger, the first game I helped him a lot , and he soon got the idea , we just used tactical cards and threw in some green and red banner cards etc.
Game 2 a few days later I gave him less help , and he won again.

Game 3 I didn't give him andy help and he still won , by a bigger margin!

Hehehe
On to the next scenario.....
