Thinking ahead to Christmas time, my son has asked for a “game where you attack and conquer other countries”. His current game favorites are Settlers of Catan, Star Wars: Rebellion, and Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization. Complexity isn’t a big issue, but simpler is probably better.
I’m thinking of getting Axis & Allies. I think he’ll love moving the little miniatures around and the rules are simple enough he’ll be able to convince his friends and not just his geeky family to play. Some searching shows there’s a plethora of versions of A&A out now. Any recommendations which is best?
I’d also like to hear recommendations for other war boardgames.
