Deciding what to record with 9 y/o son?

Premium User

I started recording a few more complex games with Elijah as he wanted to do seomthing for YouTube and I wanted to play games.  Win-win :)  Thus far we've recorded #Castles of Mad King Ludwig, #Marvel Champions: The Card Game, one other I believe.  

#Viticulture: Essential Edition was too overwhelming and we never did a playthrough.  Given that framework, I'm trying to decide what I should try next. #Dinosaur Island?, #Teotihuacan: City of Gods?, #Wingspan?, or some other game?

Thoughts are welcomed and if anyone requests soemthing specific I will tell Elijah a famoud gamer requested a video - everyone is famous to someone ;)

#Dinosaur Island is good for 9yr olds if you play the short game.  My boys didn't have the attention span for the medium or long game, but they did enjoy building the dino's. 

Other games my boys loved that would be good at 2:

#Carcassonne, #Forbidden Island (or really any of them), #Pandemic, #Raptor, #Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Gameand #Dice Throne: Season 2 - Gunslinger vs. Samurai

We have Forbidden Island. That would be a good one to add to the agenda 🙂

You should definitely do a #Crokinole video!

Ha! I hadn't thought of that but the board is our family Christmas present this year. So maybe late December or early January. Good idea!

Ah, I saw it on your owned list. But yes, I think it would make for a great video and is obviously not too complicated a game

I've played 2 of the 3 games you mentioned and my vote would go to #Wingspan. I think #Teotihuacan: City of Gods could be a bit overwhelming for adults lol. #Dinosaur Island may be a good one too if he's into the theme, but I've never played. Either way, sounds like a great way to spend time with your son!

Dinosaur Island could be fun :)

Obviously he's a smart kid! I've never played it, but as I understand it, #Teotihuacan: City of Gods is a fairly heavy game. I take it Elijah would be up to the task?

That is to some degree, part of the challenge. It's one of those games where I feel it could be dumbed down slightly...maybe. I figure he might like the pyramid building feature...lol

Haha, I'd say play something else until you feel he's ready for the heavier stuff. You have plenty of options it sounds like.
