In the spirit of Steven’s Rules 1971 – Wargaming Rules for a Seven Year Old, Brett Simpson has shared his experience of introducing his six year old daughter to wargaming. Apparently Brett took a beating.
Last year my (then) seven year old daughter asked me to explain wargaming to her. This made me recall “Steven’s Rules” – a set of wargaming rules that my father published in Slingshot back in 1971. This is a very simple set of rules that a seven year old boy (me) could play with his Airfix plastic Ancient Britons and Romans. If you’ve got a seven year old boy around the house you might find these useful.
