Wow! My 9 year old learned the locations of every major country in Africa within a week of getting this game! The whole family loves it, including grandma (and teens, who are often harder to please). It does not cover some of the smaller African nations. But for learning where places like Eritrea and Togo are, it's not only a painless geography lesson, it's great fun. It's also sturdy, with no small pieces to lose (except the cards, which are thick and substantial, so they don't get lost easily. The game is also very easy to learn, so guests can join in right away. And games don't last long, so it's a great one to pull out when you only have 20 minutes.

10 Days in Africa is a terrific game for all ages - I have played it with people from 9 to 66 years old and every age in between and everyone can enjoy it. It's also a great way to learn the geography of Africa. We changed 1 rule and it works better. Our rule: When you start the game,you have to place the cards in your tray in the order in which you pick them up. I also tried 10 Days in Europe but the game does not work as well with that continent. I want to try 10 Days in US soon.

Our 8 year old had been studying Geography and specifically the continent of Africa. When I found this game last christmas I was excited and thought that we would get a few good hours of play out of it. The family plays still it often, there is not a boredom factor that inhibits the enjoyment and we have been known to play three games in a row at one sitting. We have all gotten more familiar with the continent as we plan our trips for ten day in Africa.

I can echo what all the other reviewers have said: this game is fun for pretty much everyone. It's easy to set up, easy to learn, and there is just the right combination of luck and skill. Also, you will find yourself watching the news and saying things like "Mauritania! That's the blue country up in northwest Africa...doesn't it border Mali?"

If you'd like a slightly harder game (once you've played 100+ times you might want some variety): instead of selecting each tile and choosing where to place it, simply place each tile in chronological order (day 1 through day 10) in the beginning of the game. Makes it a little tougher to win when you have 5 airplanes in a row to start the game. :) I've also heard about enterprising veteran players using three tile-holders each and playing "15 days in Africa". Haven't tried that one myself...yet.

Our family has a "long tradition" of buying games and playing them on Christmas day. I say "long," because my two brothers and I are now in our 30s. My older brother got us this one this year, and it was tons of fun. (We actually came up with an alternate version already--take out all the drive/fly cars for the first two card picks. The first card you pickup goes in Day 1. The second card goes in Day 10. You can not change out these cards for the rest of the game. Then mix in the drive/fly cards, and fill up the rest of your Days.) My son is almost 4, but I can see him having fun with this game in a few years. I think we need to put 10 Days in the USA on our list.

I bought this game for a family birthday. We've played it over and over! To make it more challenging, have each player draw one tile (must be for a country) at random and place it in a designated location on the card holder. The player then cannot trade the card during the game and must use it in the position it was set. We've played the set card as the first card, the last card, and one of the middle cards. For older players, it's an especially good rule to increase the difficulty when playing with only 2 players. Overall we've really enjoyed this game! I bought 10 days in Asia for a friend for Christmas. Can't wait to play that one too!

First off, I must say that I am TERRIBLE at geography. For me, this game was a good excuse to learn geography under the guise of a fun game.

Gameplay wise, it involves geography and spatial reasoning. You have to arrange your trip through the continent of Africa by exchanging cards one at a time to end up with continuous countries or appropriate transportation. The game plays well with 2-4 players, and unlike many games is just as fun with 2 players as a group.

Over time you do get more familiar with the countries. My folks have every edition of this game and we often play it with them. It is a little too difficult for younger children, but pre-teen or older this is an ideal game to develop spatial reasoning, learn geography and have a great time.

I bought this game to supplement my daughter's daily map assignments on Africa. She is homeschooled, and I am very happy with this product. In addition to filling in a blank map of the continent every morning, we play this game every couple of days, and on the days we don't, she puts together the Africa Geopuzzle. I have been happy with how quickly she seems to be learning where all of the countries are located.

The game is colorful, durable and easy to set up and break down. I like that we can play a quick game in between other assignments and it doesn't take a lot of time away from instruction. Because of the success we've had with this product, I am interested in purchasing the other "10 Days" games.
