    Looking for something we can collect. Like the axis and allied and star wars miniatures. Saw the review of Sergeants wargames and love the miniatures but holy cow spendy! Any recommendations? Go with Sergeants or stick with the miniatures we have or something new etc?
    If your primary goal is to collect (as opposed to gaming) then you will find that the rare bits get pricey

    here is an extensive list, I feel like the first one is a good option. You will get to know your son better.

    Agreed. There are some expansion units/pieces available to consider as well.

    I remember playing Risk when I was 10. I would try and conquer Australia first as it was easily defensible then expand into Asia.

    I did for almost a year but then I was told that extra people would come to the demo and so I opened my own copy...it's all for the marketing & promotion, I guess

    Then move to Axis and Allies; a bit more complexity.

    From there, well, you'll have to gauge it based upon your observations.
    Here's one to consider, but helps to have 3-6 players;
