Here's an opportunity for your brilliant child to get some well deserved attention for his/her intelligence and earn money at the same time.
This job is essentially for a child age 7 to 13, but requires the expressed onscreen permission of the child's parent (or legal guardian).
Your video will open with the camera pointed at the child w/ parent, the parent will start by introducing his/herself then saying something to the effect of "this is my son/daughter [child name]" then the child reintroduces himself with name, age, grade level, favorite school subjects, and any other info that would corroborate his/her brilliance (honors, science fair or spelling bee winner, math wiz, etc ...) , then the child will mention the fact that s/he recently learn about Armis and his/her parent(s) accepted the job for him/her to review the game
The child begins the review, then camera points to computer screen during game, child narrates all actions with parent's assistance until the child captures the opponent's flag, then the camera goes back to the child and the child expresses what s/he felt about the game and game play. Please close with an appreciation of the opportunity.
Here is one example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-D99w85sCs0
Special note for all Armis presentations: please keep in mind that Armis is more of a family game than a war game, so in that light we try to use certain keywords for certain activities, ie: we 'activate' the Nuke rather than 'blow it up', or 'detonation' it; we 'take', 'remove', or 'capture' player pieces instead of 'kill', 'crush', or 'destroy' 'men'.; we play against 'the opponent', to 'win' not against 'the enemy' to 'beat'.them. Lastly, we try not to capture our opponent's Child during any assignment.
Our budget for this project is $45
