It was my first ever M44 game too. We did one round of Pegasus Bridge scenario. She had the guys with the red berets. Unfortunately on this occasion the Wehrmacht was using guided bullets and mowed down dozens of the enemy. A combination of bad luck, poor advice (my first time too remember) and youthful inexperience did not help. We both enjoyed it immensely and it further reinforced my growing preference for grid based games. Next time it will be daddy as Major Howard…..!

I know the system is not to everyone's taste but I for one can see a long and happy future with Bob Cordery, Richard Borg and Peter Pig being my go to guys for rules, jnspiration and mash ups.

Nice. M44 isn't a nuts and bolts war game, but it is a fun, quick board game that even 7 year olds can enjoy. Way to go, getting some "daddy and me" time in!

Great game for a kid. For my daughters, it was Battlelore.
Thanks Mr. Borg for both!

I got my youngest daughter started with Lionheart. Then she moved on to DBA for a few years.

It must be extra special to have that happen. Your a luckyguy.

Great! Sounds like fun

A couple of weeks ago I had my first game of Tanks (the skirmish game from Gale Force Nine games) with my 5 year old grandson; we had a blast; he had the Germans and his Tiger picked my hapless T-34s off like ducks in a row

In fact, he liked it so much he was chomping at the bit to play again
