I homeschool my kids and we have a ton of games to help them learn. This is one of their most favorites. My son is eager to play this game. It has helped him learn interesting facts about the states, where they are located and what their capitals are. He will even study outside the game in hopes to beat me at the game.
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.

Too many citizens of the U.S. can't tell the difference between Colorado and Wyoming. Play this fun game and learn about the 50 states. My husband and I play this with our children to help them learn. To make it more challenging, the adults have to name the capital cities as well the the states. Sometimes the spinner seems to land on the same numbers, so we've altered the game so that a new number must be spun each turn.

We just bought this game for our five year old son. He loves maps and could name some of the more recognizable states already, so we figured he would love it. However...

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.

This game is so much fun, your children won't think they are learning and they'll want to play it all the time. Because it's repetitive and easy, children learn fast. I would recomend this game to all parents

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Gayle Nicoll on November 26, 2008
We got Name That Country first, as our daughter really loves geography. That game is awesome, so we expected as much if not more from Name That State. Boy, were we disappointed! Not half as much time or thought went into the production of this game. The board itself is much shorter, so that you can actually get around the entire board by successfully identifying only 3 states; this makes the game play short, unchallenging, and unsatisfying. And then the layout of the path stinks, too. For example, on one space, it says, "go ahead 2 spaces," and 2 spaces later, there's a draw a bonus postcard, which makes you go ahead another 2 spaces. Or another example: one space says go ahead 2 spaces, and when you get there, that space says go back 3 spaces. Very poor layout! It also doesn't have the flexibility of the Name that country game: with that one, I could challenge my daughter by putting new numbers on the board so she could ID new countries. No such luck with name that state. Overall, a massive disappointment from Educational Insights, which usually delivers quality stuff.

I'm always looking for educational toys. I played this game with my two children, age 15 and 11, and also my parents (in their 60's). We all realized we didn't know as much about our states as we would like. However, the game didn't hold much interest. It was much like using flash cards. One good point, it was a fast game.

I homeschool my three girls and this is a fun and easy way to learn the locations of the states. You can also learn a few fun facts. The game says for 3rd grade and up, but we are using it in 2nd grade with no trouble. It is easy to set up and there are only a few simple rules. Within minutes of opening the box you will be learning.

FYI: The more you need to learn about the states the more fun you will have.
