Can anyone recommend some violence free strategy games? I guess I'm thinking of games like Myst, without all the dying...

I recently tried the Crystal Key from DreamCatcher games and was enjoying it with my bright but YOUNG kids, when out of nowhere "we" were shot by an unexpected bot of some sort...I hate games that are "rated E for everyone" - according to whom?

OK I'm a woos and my kids are pretty wide-eyed innocents, but maybe someone has some first hand experince with some fun strategy games.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Harry Potter and Sorc. Stone.
MS Train Sim.

hummmmmm. it is basically impossible to find non-violent games unless they are learing type games like 123 Math, ADC Fun, Math Trech ETC.

Violence in every game

Also if you know someone with a windows 95 disk have a look for Hover. Copy the folder, put it on your system, create a shortcut & away it goes. It's capture the flag using a hovercraft. :D

Yeah, Battle Chess!
Oh yeah, no violence *doh*! :)

The Tycoon type games are pretty harmless. Railroad Tycoon II would do. Very educating too i guess.

The LEGO series of games are quite good for younger kids. My lad's nearly 4 and he loves Rock Raiders and Lego Racers. The Sims is good for kids as is Tony Hawks Pro Skater. All non violent games and all very playable.:D

Duurrr.. I am the only one with sense!.. catch23.. so you'd let a 4-5year old.. play a violent game and have nightmares would you!?

Its a case of just limiting the games until the child is at an age that they understand. (8+)

Thank you for all the suggestions.

My kids get very little computer time so they actually play with each other mostly...meaning they get enough violence on their own LOL

I downloaded a demo of the Incredible Machine but it seems to have problems with XP...if it didn't I'd buy the full version...the kids loved playing it when I had win98

anyway thanks again

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
