First you start off by spinning the spinner and finding the state number that it landed on. To continue with your turn, you must correctly name the capital of that state. If you can't, your turn ends. If you do get the capital correct you then roll the dice and move the appropriate spaces. If you land on a space where you must draw a card, you must name the state by the hint left on the card. Most of the time it is land marks or tourist spots.
I definitely think that every parents should buy this game. It does not matter if your child attends public school, private school or home school. This game will make learning the states fun for your child and the whole family.
The gameplay is nonexistent. There really is no game. It's rote learning of the states and their capitals cloaked in "an exciting geography game". But it's NOT exciting. After your child learns the states (which might take a week or so, game or no game) then even that element of enjoyment is gone from this game.
The factoid postcards are not that interesting, restricting themselves to well-known landmarks and not delving into many historic or demographic details. The cards themselves are printed on cheap paper stock rather than glossy card stock, so they get bent very easily.
The spinner is on a flimsy cardboard insert that isn't flat, so the spinner doesn't spin all that consistently.
We've had this one for a week, and it's already on the shelf. The game says it's for kids Grade 3 and up...I can't imagine how older kids would enjoy this game if it can't hold a five year old's attention.
FYI: The more you need to learn about the states the more fun you will have.
My two oldest sons learned their states very quickly from playing the game. We went to a public school one afternoon to play on the playground equipment. My sons met two boys who attended the school. (they were a little older than my boys) There was a colored map of the United States painted on the pavement. The four of them started playing some sort of game involving a ball and knowing your states. My boys won the game by a long shot because they knew all their states and the other boys did not. It was amazing! And it was only because they had played Name That State.
