    What games are out there like Advanced Heroquest from back in the day?

    Fairly simple. Co-op. Suitable for a bright six year old to play?

    I don’t know of any wargames, but Forbidden Island fits otherwise.

    I started playing a simplified version of Warhammer Quest (mostly a simpler combat mechanism) with my 5 yo and 7 yo.  We are still playing the  game every now and then and they are 7 and 9 now.  But a recent game I picked up was Zombicide.  I have zero interest in zombies, my 7 yo son loves them and loves the game. “Best game ever” was one comment.  He cannot sit down while playing and jumps up and down.  It is a co-op games with figures with simple mechanics.  I only have the first game but know there are lots of expansions.  Games are 1 to 1.5 hours. I asked around and some other of my friends play it with their children too.  I would have never thought of it but my son saw it second hand when we were wandering around.

    Just my example and it may not be up your alley though!

    I looked at Zombicide but it is too graphic really for what I want her to see.

    Does Warhammer Quest have a co-op play where her and I can play against the dungeon?

    WarhammerQuest is pure co-op play against the dungeon.  You play a character (barbarian, dwarf, elf or wizard) and delve the dungeon fighting monsters and gaining treasure on the way to the final showdown.  You do not need four – we usually play with three characters but you will need to tone down the number of monsters that appear.

    I do have a post on my blog with the simpler combat rules and an example of play:
