No, seriously. Ideas for RPGs suitable for a doting dad who was into D&D at uni back in the Dark Ages (not me) to play with his pre-teen son.

So, simple system, low initial investment of time and cash.

Thank you, you're all lovely. Apart from Steders, he's a twat.

The D&D Dragon Quest set is always a decent starter. You should be able to pick one up cheaply, and if you're lucky it might still have its original set of metal Ral Partha miniatures that came free with it. It does have the basic plastic ones if it doesn't, though.

First Quest is another for beginners:

Otherworld? I haven't played this, but the description suggests a simpler set of rules that might be suitable for the age range you're looking at.

TBH Id say D&D (redbox or 5th ed) would be a great place to start - the 5th ed starter set has everything you need for a one shot.

I am also a RQ6 or BRP guy, its a good system, but a little technical (only at 1st)...

I indoctrinated my group using mini games (we used BASH! fantasy) then into D&D - which proved v popular, I am only now considering staring them on BRP (it could have been where we started If Id been more confident of a more open system)

Savage worlds, simple system and the basic book that gives you everything you need is less than £10.

The current version of D&D 5e is actually very good.
