    When 14% of American high school seniors can't locate the United States on an unmarked world map, something is wrong.

    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

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?

    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

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.

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.

    They'll all become back seat drivers when you give them their own road atlases. But at least it may save you from those "How much farther?" questions AND teach them how to read a map and navigate in the process. Each two-page state spread has a real road map with kid-level detail and appeal, plus state information like the capital, official bird, flower, tree and state nickname. Facing page has a game or puzzle to play for each state, too. Some incorporate map reading skills.

    Mixing chance and strategy, you can only win by being the first player to construct roads that connect all four of your designated cities. Chance – because you never know how many miles of road you will be allowed to build on each turn, or if one of your designated cities will suddenly and randomly change, or if you will have one more, or one less city to connect. Strategy – because you can use or remove the roads other players construct (they can also use yours) and you are sometimes given the opportunity to create detours and road closures to foil the plans of your opponents. All moves are based on the draw of a Chaos Card – you begin with three and draw a new one at the start of each turn. Miami to Minneapolis can be a long way, until you suddenly get switched to Tampa! Or…it could be even worse! Learn the geography of the 48 states and the best routes across the country in this game full of twists and turns. For 2-6 players. – Zach
