Any good, fun ww2 board games that are very easy to learn, modest play time (1-2 hours) and pretty cheap?
Something suitable for an 8 year old in particular :)

kyote, how many cops are getting shot in traffic stops these days? Not meaning any political comment. Just sayin'.

Definitely Memoir 44. It is a board game, but it comes with plastic figures & terrain pieces, so it has the feeling of a non-board wargame. & all the scenarios are well laid out so you can just sit down & play. & there are a number of expansions for the different theaters.
Because the game uses cards for activation, there may be some reading necessary.

Avalon Hill Battle of the Bilge. 1965 edition.
Cheap on eBay.

I'm not a cop I just play one on TV.

AH's Battle of the Bulge may seem simple, but for an
8-year old, I'd suggest something else.
That game has a LOT of subtleties.
Memoir 44 is a good suggestion…

I just found this on Wargames Vault if you want to go with a full wargame
I know nothing about it, but it says its made for kids.

Memoir 44! gave that to my 9 yr old grandson this past Christmas. He and my son have had a blast playing it.
Grandson cleaned Dad's clock in the first two scenarios!
That'll teach him for getting away from the hobby!

For a 8 year old I would have to go with Memoir 44.
