X-Wing Junior (for preschoolers)

So I have a four-year-old son and he loves star wars (which is admittedly redundant), but he lacks fine motor control and has a younger brother who grabs everything. A simplified version of X-Wing didn’t seem too far outside of his grasp of understanding, but the safety of Daddy’s toys was at stake. What to do?

I wrote this article for the X-Wing community on Board Game Geek a while back and it received a great deal of praise. Check it out.
