Mad Dash Game
If you have 3 minutes, you have time to play Mad Dash - a lively game that challenges players to travel across America in just 3 minutes (timer included!). Winner of a prestigious Parents' Choice Gold Award, the game is intense, addictive, and sharpens geographic skills in a hurry! 2-4 players each unfold a colorful map, then play begins. A sand timer allows for just three minutes to form your state cards into a trail of "neighbors" (states that border each other). The more difficult the route, the higher your score - and there's a big bonus if you can go coast-to-coast. But hurry - time is running out! Each game also comes with State Secrets - a strategy game in which players earn "tricks" by playing the cards of the largest or most populous states. But you must be able to answer questions about cities and natural features of the U.S.A. Here's what Parent's Choice had to say: "As the open-book exam of all time, the game gets you to say and say again the names of states while tracing borders to see if they indeed connect. Zooming fun to play!"
