So Z designed and built a game last week.
It’s a Memoir’44 clone (that’s his favorite game) but with some twists of his own. He’s using my old army men, Star Wars figs, a tank made by his grandfather, and a Lego castle. You draw an action card and take the action. Examples are camoflage, move two hexes, or mortar fire!. If you encounter the enemy you battle using a War card game deck. Simple but fun. In a week. By an 8 year old. He’s working on expansions now. I’m helping him with building new action cards. He painted the first set and the board. And I can’t even get one game finished!
