This is a simplified version of Don Green's award-winning strategy game Octi. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that, despite the simplifications, the game is still strategically interesting.
Basically, this is a checkers-style game, in which the pieces can be customized to move in certain directions. For example, you can construct one piece which moves forward and backward, one which moves diagonally, etc.
There isn't really anything about this game that makes it a kids' game, any more so than checkers or chess can be considered kids' games. But for kids who are already interested in checkers and chess, this game complements those quite nicely.
Note: This game was originally release under the name Octi for Kids, and later re-released under the name Octi. The (adult) game that was originally called Octi is now called Octi Extreme. Pretty confusing, eh?
