    When I was 12 I had a cool game called Weapons and Warriors. It was really fun. You get to sit around on the floor, roll a die, then take these cool plastic marbles and shoot at each others men with these neat little plastic cannons, catapults, etc. There were many different ones, castles, pirates, etc. Excellent games, I would still play them today if I did not break all the little guys. I would recommend this game, I got a 5, 7, and 8 year old to play it ... they enjoyed it. (However, I am not sure if it is still sold)
    Stratego may be a little advanced as of yet for a 6 year old... but it is good for 8-10 year old.
    When they get to ages 11+, Axis and Allies and of course, RISK!

    I think Battleship is a good choice.
    The rules are simple... yet it helps develop logical thinking.

    Stratego is a classic and a good one for battlefield strategy.

    Risk, Battleship and Stratego! I loved those games growing up, and I still do!

    Has anyone ever used any simple rules for plastic army figures? I found some on the internet.
