We brought this game on a recent shopping trip. I try to encourage my son to play games that also teach. This game does just that.
It is easy to learn. There are 50 blue State Cards and then some red game cards. Each player receives 5 Blue State cards. Then a red game card is pulled out and there is a question about a state on it. Example "What state is on the Eastern border of Iowa" or "touches the Atlantic Ocean" Some red card questions can have more then one answer so the first player to call out a state from their hand wins that round.
It really is a lot of fun.
I like it because it teaches my son about the United States geography and the US Capital cities. I have seen my son become more aware of the location of states and their capitals.
It is simple enough for kids, yet interesting enough for adults.
My brother was over one night and even a single bachelor had fun playing this game.
I have been telling other parens about this game when I hear them say they don't know what to get for their child. This is a fun educational game.
My only wish is that the company made a World Game similar to this State game.
I can not think of a bad thing about this game.
