Awesome game!
October 19, 2003

My kids, ages 6 & 8 love this game! It is so much fun and so educational! They ask to play again and again! We even took it in the camper because it doesn't take up much space or have a lot of pieces. It is a quick, exciting game that even mom and dad don't mind playing. This game will teach your kids something very valuable - state names, locations, capitals, and nicknames. You won't be disappointed!

fun for everyone

This is a nice simple game for anyone who wants to brush up on US geography. The game moves very quickly. The card art is cute. I play this with my kids and we always end up laughing. This game is silly and fun, but also very educational.We have played with Three to four players, the youngest 9. We have a house rule. The player that answers the question must pick the card for the next turn and read it to the other players.

The person who reads the question can only play that turn if it is a' go the distance card'. This prevents the smartest player from answering all the questions.This helps the younger player to have a chance to win also.

Great game that's fast and easy to play!

My 5 yr old got this from Santa and we love it. It is a fast game and it is easy to learn. Each player gets 5 cards, turn over an action card, 'capital has 7 letters', do you have a match? Say the state name before your opponent(s) and you win the round! Action cards are as simple as 'it's red' to 'find a first name in the state's capital'. Plus, there are 'Go the Distance' cards where whoever is closest to the state mentioned, wins the round. It's a great way to learn some US geography and just a fun game all around!

Fun, but limited educational value
July 09, 2005
My children (ages 6 and 8) had fun playing this quick and simple game, but I found it disappointing from an educational standpoint. The illustrations are cute, but in the case of some of the smaller states bear only a passing resemblence to the state profile. There are no mountains, rivers, deserts or lakes, thus Kansas and Colorado are nearly identical. The reference map has no compass points, assuming that players know east from west. The reference map also gives no indication that Alaska and Hawaii are not shown to scale - something that is obvious to an adult, but needs to be spelled out to kids. A little more precision would have made this game a much better learning tool without diminishing the fun.
