We love Where in the World...but not as a game. The game is boring but the set is a wonderful tool to learn the countries of the world. There is something about the using the cards that makes it simple to memorize the names, postions and relative size of each country. Each conintinent has colour coded cards. They are numbered, with country #1 being the largest and then on down to the smallest. For example; the Ukraine is the largest country in Europe etc. It's probably not that helpful but my kids do enjoy answering questions like...What is the 13th largest country in Asia? The way we do it is take a continent map (which has the countries with numbers on it, but no names) take the first three cards and memorize the names and positions, then add three more cards and go over the six countries, then add 3 more and so on. You would be amazed how fast they learn them. It is not just my own children because I have tried it out on visiting friends and all have learned easily. The game is pricy but worth it. I only rated it 3 stars because it is not fun to play as a game. I would rate it 10 stars as a tool to learn the countries of the world.
