The armies of World War II are marching across our living room floor. There are Lincoln Log forts being pummeled by tanks and machine guns and rocks from catapults. It took quite some time (nice quite time, I might add) to set up all the forts, flags and men. Austin was the USA and Aidan was Germany. Of course, now that Aidan has discovered that Germany lost and the Allies won, he wants a different flag - Britain's will do.
Once the battle began, then World War III also broke out as Austin didn't have the right tank and he wasn't allowed to just drive over Aidan's troops. Austin eventually quit playing so Aidan knocked down Austin's old fort which created more drama. The suggestion that they both be on the same team sounded good, but in reality was impossible for them to execute as then there was no one to manage the enemy troops and they couldn't agree on tactics.
Aidan had lots of questions, including do they start a war by saying "ready, set, go". The most amusing question was, "Do the soldiers in wars get a lunch break?" I explained that they used to long long ago, but now there are surprise attacks that could happen over lunch time. Aidan responded with the quote of the day, "I don't want to be a soldier if I might get killed while eating my lunch. Lunch is one of my most favorite things." Naturally, there were follow-up questions like, do they get to pick what they eat for lunch and do they get dessert?
