If there were a critical mass of kids, and interested adults, I could 
definitely see a "kid's game".
The megablock/lego idea works for me, too. I recently had a 'giant 
robot' FT-variant game with Zev and Benjamin (age 3.75), using Lego 
robots. I think it worked pretty well, but I bet a dirtside or FMAS 
variant would be more apropos for giant robots.

One of the reasons I'm only going for 2 sessions of the con is because 
I won't be staying overnight. We're framing the day as a Father-Son 
outing to play some games.

I'm also keeping in mind the length of the sessions. The Cinegrunt is 
going to be new to both of us, and I think the role-play aspect of it 
will be engaging. I plan to have some extra distractions on hand in 
case of boredom. I might ask Rick Rutherford if Z can join in the 
painting workshop (not so much for learning as for the change of pace). 
When he painted his minis at home last year, he was quite responsible 
with the paints and brushes.

I understand Laserlight's concern about kids getting in to things 
they're not supposed to. I'm not worried about Zev - I think he's got a 
healthy respect for the property of others, and minis in general. But 
if it did turn out to be a problem, or if the day just becomes too 
long, there's always the car home. I think he's ready, but some things 
work out and some don't.
