I've played the Modern Age Warfighter and received my Kickstarter version of the WW2 Warfighter just before Christmas.

It's a nice co-op/solo game that has a lot of re-playability due to card draw and what decisions you make when 'kitting out' your force.

Here's a quick link to a you tube video that does a pretty decent job of explaining the basics of the Modern Age Warfighter.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1X3edrWS2U

Modern Age Warfighter basic game allows you to play as the US against Drug Cartels in a Jungle setting, or in a Desert setting against Terrorists or Militants. Expansions allow you to use SAS,  and Russian units as well as introducing silent weapons and night fighting rules.

The WW2 version plays very similar to the Modern Age but it gives you more options.  For example you can play US, Brits, Russia, or Poland against the Germans -or- you can play as the Germans against any of the allies mentioned above.  It is also divided between Eastern and Western fronts.  I believe that the base game only includes US/Germans and the Western Front.

So far I've played as the Brits and US against the Germans in the Western Front.

You get an Objective and a Mission to complete which will give you a point total that you use to assemble your strike team/squad, and you need to complete your objective by moving through a series of locations before time (number of turns) runs out.  

I'm not going to go into exact specifics of the game play (unless you really want me to), but I enjoy it as it gives a decent small unit level experience without over complicated rules and lots of charts.  Depending on the mission, average playing time including setup and put away is about 90-120 minutes.

Thank you for a quick synopsis, most helpful. In your opinion do you think a couple of 9 years old will able to pick it up the game or should I wait to introduce them to it.

That really depends on the 9 yr olds.  (I know it sounds like a cop out...)  I've seen some 9yr olds that would do great with the game while others have the attention span of a squirrel.

If they can handle any of the AA games or some of the Card Games out there, then they shouldn't have too many issues with the game.  I'd recommend watching the "how to play" video in my previous post to get an idea and then make the judgment call.
