Product Description

Amazon.com

"Dear Pen Pal, Konnichi wa! We've been to see Mt. Fuji. Name my country! Sayonara, Michiko." Challenge your group with this fast-paced geography game, created in 1992 by Educational Insights, Inc. Everyone begins at the post office. Players twirl a finely printed spinner (built into the game board itself) to select one of 60 countries. If the player can correctly identify the country's location on the board's numbered map, he or she may advance along the path to the finish. Bonus moves are won by landing on "postcard" spaces, listening to the clues on one of the 40 postcards, and correctly identifying the pen pal's country. (The sample postcard above came from Japan.) A more challenging game can be achieved by requiring players to name the country's capital; answers are provided. --Liane Thomas

This game teaches the players to recognize and learn the names of about 50 countries by looking at them on a map. Good for grade K - adult. Young grade schoolers need a good "reader" to play with them to read some "bonus cards". I think after playing the game 10 or 20 times that most children will learn the country names. You can enhance the game however to make it better! Use a marker to number the countries that this game ignores and instead of using their []spinner create little cardboard numbers that the kids pick one at a time (instead of spinning). Instead of only having 50 countries in play, you can have hundreds... I immediately made my own "cardboard numbers". Be a little creative and this little game can teach a lot. It's fun to play and kids like it..especially after they've played it a few times and are learning the country names. A great introduction to world geography.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoy playing this game. My knowledge of geography is limited and my daughter got quite a kick out of beating Mom easily. The game is brightly colored and very easy to understand and start playing. There's also a reading component with the post cards. I would recommend it for gifts or schools as well.

This game really puts the world at your child's fingertips. My daughter begs to play even after her dad and I are pooped. And at eight years old, she knows more about geography than I did when I was much older. I'm getting her "Name That State" for her birthday and expect the same reaction.

I bought this for my 4-year old son who can already read. He has not stopped playing it for one month now even though he already knows each of the 60 countries and capitals. Because of this game, he has been reading the Atlas and books about children in other countries. I gave this game as a gift to my friends' kids who are between 4 to 8 years old; and they too love the game. I'm sure the game will quickly become boring; but it has done its job of opening up an aspect of learning and an area of interest besides reading, writing and math.

I had planned on buying this game for some time as our family loves learning games and we had been learning a lot of geography. I found this game did not live up to my expectations at all. The questions were so easy to figure out that whoever went first was usually the winner. We have only played the game once and no one has reached for it since. It does have some cute features (such as cute card questions). My children are ages 6 and 8 and found it basically uninteresting.

Great idea for a board game with lots of learning potential for younger children, however children 10+ years may soon find this formula a little unchallenging. Several improvements could make this a better product; notably, heavier paper for the frequently handled question cards, and a much larger map on the game board. Some of the countries appear too small for grandparents and children with poor eyesight. Also, the spinner is labeled with text that should be larger. With just a few design changes and the opportunity to purchase additional question card packs, perhaps geared towards different age groups, we could recommend this game more enthusiastically.

Verified Purchase
I got this game for my 5-year-old daughter, who loves geography. It became her favorite game in no time flat. You spin the spinner, read the continent and country, and try to find the country on the map. If you are successful, you get to move the given number of spaces on the spinner. At intervals, there are bonus "post-cards" that you can land on. From the hints on the postcard, if you can identify the country they're talking about, you get to move ahead 2 extra spaces.

Within 6 months, my daughter knew all the countries on the board, so we added our own. I just printed out little tags and pasted them onto the other countries on the board, and we kept playing. After a year, she knows *all* (and I mean ALL) the countries in the world! She's so good, she beats the pants off anyone else she plays against, so we've modified the game again: now, she has to name the capital of the country as well as the location. That'll keep her challenged and interested for another year!

Meanwhile, my 3 year old learned her continents and is beginning to learn her countries on the game. Granted, she can't read, but the spinner gives both the continent and the country. We read her the country and the continent, and then she locates it on the map. We don't do the post cards with her, as she's not knowledgeable enough yet. The point is, though, that the game is flexible enough for novices and experts alike!

My only complaint--and it's a small one--is that the game board is too small. It is conceivably possible that you could identify 3 countries that move you ahead 6 spaces, and be at the end of the game. I would've liked a longer board (or fewer 6-spaces) to keep the game going longer.

This game is a fun way to introduce geography.

The manufacture recommends this game for 3 and up, while Amazon states 6 - 9. At our home it has been enjoy by children ages 4 -adult. The older children and adults do get tired a bit faster than preschool and younger school age children.

It is easier to play the game with a child who can read - but even those with limited or no read skills can have fun. The game is bright and colorful. It captures your attention and imagination. This game teaches good basic map skills. Players state the names of countries by looking at them. If they don't know them, they quickly learn to recognize them.
