Product Description:

Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quick-thinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambled-up United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 2-4 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state - and remember it! - Jess

The game is fun, and it also helps you learn. It isn't just facts, but you need to find and remember where states are located and which ones are close to each other. Some parts of the game are irrelevant, which makes it wacky and fun.

We are a part of Classical Conversations and our little ones are learning the US states and capitals this year. I thought this would be another fun way to reinforce that learning.

Looks like a fun way to acquire a skill that can sometimes be cumbersome to learn with pen and paper!

I have offered this game as a prize in an annual U.S. Geography Fair for several years. My children have played it as well, and I consistently get good feedback from the kids about how much fun it is to play. It seems most suitable for children around 3rd thru 6th grade.

Is the picture book included?
Laura on Jul 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it includes a very small paper copy of the picture book. It would not be ideal for reading to large groups and won't hold up to repeated use or being stored on a bookshelf, but it's perfectly readable if you want to read with your own children before playing the game.
Can you make this game work with non-readers? (4 and 6 yo?)
User on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not really. Someone would have to read everything on each card to the child, and that inhibits the flow of the game significantly. If I was buying the game for older kids, I would certainly find a way to involve youngers in playing, but I would not buy it just for a 4 and 6 year old.

Cute, Fun, and Educational!
This was the perfect addition to our U.S. Geography unit. Gameplay is the perfect length for my 7yo and 11yo's attention spans, and my 4yo loves the book the game is based on (but she doesn't play since she can't read yet).

We had to tweak the rules to make it fair for my 7yo who just started reading recently, but they love to play and would choose it every day if I let them.

When my thirteen year old daughter opened the package, she complained that this was a kids game. Don't let the box fool you. It fun and challenging for all ages. She actually asked me to play with her during the summer, just for fun. Plus, I think now she knows all her state capitals.

I am so glad that we purchased this game as a fun part of our second grade curriculum! Our daughter is learning about the states this year so it was a perfect fit When we first played this game she could not even pronounce many of the state names much less find them on a map But after playing this game several times she has improved immensely and has learned so much! Since game play is explained in the description I will not go into details of it here except to say that there are alternate rules in the instructions for younger players In this variation speed is not a factor We play by these rules currently not only to give a more equal playing field for our child but also because we prefer to be less loud and competitive when playing family games Even with this variation the game is still very fun and game play is still fast and exciting I appreciate the variability of the "scramble" cards which keeps game play fresh We particularly enjoy the "go the distance" cards which really help with map skills as you look to see if you have a state in closest proximity to the featured card Of all the items I have purchased to compliment our curriculum this year this one is our very favorite!
