Played with my 4 year old for the first time yesterday. The game is exactly what I hoping for both as an introduction to role playing and heroic fantasy. He took to it very quickly, and seemed to have a good understanding of the story and the basic mechanics. He very much enjoyed fighting giant rats and goblins. We'll definitely be play again. I bought the map / mini pack as well, and the maps were very useful.
