    Be the person who knows (or can guess!) the most correct flags and win! This set comes with 200 cards in a sturdy box as well as directions for 4 different ways to play. Put the cards on the table, guess the countries, then flip the card over to see if you’re right! There’s also info about the country on the back of the card including surface area, population, capital and some facts about the location of the country. “But where is Kyrgyzstan? Or Comoros? Or Sri Lanka?” Your child asks. Don’t worry; there’s an included 16.5”x11.75” world map with all the countries labeled numerically with the corresponding names listed alphabetically below. 200 cards total. – Laura

    Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quick-thinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambled-up United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 2-4 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state - and remember it! - Jess

    Games are the perfect format to learn geography, and this one is especially simple and effective. Similar to the Timeline games from the same company, each player holds four cards and tries to place them correctly in relation to the cards already on the table. In this edition, each card features a country. The front of the card shows the country name and a fitting illustration, the back of the card contains the same picture along with four pieces of relevant information: the country's population, pollution output, gross domestic product, and land area. Players decide which characteristic to play by, flip one card up in the middle, and then take turns trying to place their country cards correctly around the ones on the table. Once a player has selected a spot for their card, they turn it over to view the information and see if they were right. Correctly placed cards stay flipped up on the table, wrongly placed cards are discarded and players draw a new card from the deck. As you can see, the more cards that are on the table, the harder it becomes to place a new card. The first player to place all of their cards wins. A great game for learning about countries and compiling tidbits of knowledge! 2-8 players, 15 minutes playing time, and the 110 cards are packaged in a nice little tin. If you enjoy this one, try Cardline: Animals too! – Steph

    If you have 3 minutes, you have time to play Mad Dash - a lively game that challenges players to travel across America in just 3 minutes (timer included!). Winner of a prestigious Parents' Choice Gold Award, the game is intense, addictive, and sharpens geographic skills in a hurry! 2-4 players each unfold a colorful map, then play begins. A sand timer allows for just three minutes to form your state cards into a trail of "neighbors" (states that border each other). The more difficult the route, the higher your score - and there's a big bonus if you can go coast-to-coast. But hurry - time is running out! Each game also comes with State Secrets - a strategy game in which players earn "tricks" by playing the cards of the largest or most populous states. But you must be able to answer questions about cities and natural features of the U.S.A. Here's what Parent's Choice had to say: "As the open-book exam of all time, the game gets you to say and say again the names of states while tracing borders to see if they indeed connect. Zooming fun to play!"

    Travel the world—and learn fun facts—in this game of "Who, Where, and What." This game includes a game board, spinner, 6 cardboard animal pawns, 110 question cards, 60 flag cards, and 50 travel cards. First, players spin the spinner. Depending on where it lands, they draw a Question card, Flag card, or Travel card. Question cards have two questions (followed by detailed answers): one about the manmade world and one about the natural world (ie. "What country is known for its sandy deserts: Algeria, Indonesia, or Vietnam?"). Flag cards have three questions about the country whose flag is pictured on the card (ie. capital cities, language, landmarks). Travel cards have fun challenges to complete (ie. "Name 9 countries that start with the letter 'P'"). Players advance 1 space for each question they answer correctly. The first person to circle the board and cross their own "Start" circle is the winner. Win or lose, players will learn plenty along the way about our amazing world. 2-6 players.

    Isn't it about time that they came out with a U.S. edition? The game includes a U.S. map game board, 50 state cards, color-coded by region, 6 blank state cards and 120 colored playing pieces. The state cards are chock-full of information, including the state flag, postal code, date of admission, area, population, capital, region, industry, bordering states, motto, bird, flower, tree, nickname, tourist attractions, number of representatives and more. Like Where in the World? this game has four types of game play, including Statesman, Junior Representative, Senior Representative and Solitaire. Statesman focuses on one or more regions of the U.S. Players isolate a group of state cards in that region and players draw a card and try to provide that state's information for the chosen category(s). Junior Representative asks players to identify the state based on selected facts, while Senior Representative adds a twist where players incorporate current news and events. Solitaire play is great for test prep and helps players memorize state facts. A solidly educational addition to your U.S. geography studies! – Jess

    A lot of information is packed into this card game. If your goal is to master the basics about each of the 50 states – identity, symbols, geography, and economy – then this could be your most useful tool. Not visually glitzy – just informative – the game consists of four color-coded decks of 50-some laminated cards. The cards of each set list the two-letter abbreviation for a state on the front along with basic category questions. For instance, the State Economy card deck asks for chief products (manufactured, agricultural, and mineral) and the State Identity deck asks for nickname, motto, and order of statehood. Answers are on the back of each card. Play is fairly simple and consists of picking a card, getting points for being able to provide the various pieces of information, and collecting cards from each of the four categories mentioned above. Game play is spiced up with Wild Cards as well as some game adaptations that are available. By the way, did you know that Nevada has two state trees? (Yes, you get an extra point for knowing them both.) ~ Janice

    Test and expand your knowledge of the world with this challenge card set. The small box contains 150 double-sided question cards. One side contains a multiple choice question with three possible answers, and the back reveals the answer and a list of related facts pertaining to the part of the world addressed in the question. For example, one card's question asks the player to determine which country in Southeast Asia has the least number of people per square mile than any other country in the world. The back of the card lists the answer, Mongolia, along with facts about the country: its capital, population, land area, life expectancy and literacy rate. There are no set rules for playing WordTeasers, although the set does include some game suggestions, as does the WordTeasers website. Of course, you can always use the cards to quiz yourself or others about this fascinating world we live in. ~ Lisa

    Based on the popular Great States! Board Game, this travel version is a great product in its own right! Included are 100 playing cards that measure 3â₝ x 4.5â₝, with ideas for four fun games to play. Each of the fifty states has two cards in the set; one asks about the capital and largest city in the state and the other asks what other states the state borders and another trivia question about famous landmarks or other state facts. With two trivia questions on each card, there are 200 questions in all (four for each state). Additional, random, interesting tidbits of information are included on the bottom of each card. The front side of each card displays an outline of the featured state with the surrounding states faded. The most popular way to play with a group is to shuffle the cards and then take turns reading questions from the cards. The first person to answer the question correctly wins the card and the player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner (for a break from the game, you can use them as flashcards, too). To help with the tricky questions, a full-color, fold-out map of the USA (measuring 11â₝ x 8.5â₝) is included. Learn important state facts with this card game and have fun while youââ‚™re doing it. For 2+ players. ~ Rachel

    A clever name for a clever game! An excellent product for learning and remembering states, capitals, which goes with which, and where in the world the state is.

State location is shown on the reverse side of the card. Looseleaf packet includes drill cards (one for every state), a game board (for two players) with a review board on the back, and a master list to check answers, all printed on white cardstock. Jolly good fun! - Megan
