Bad weather may strike at the hands of another player, or they might cancel your travel plans via a derailed train or closed airport. The first traveler to reach seven destinations wins!

I have Snapshots across America and used it for years with my own children years ago homeschooling. It not only taught my children about their states, but it helped them to learn which ones were north, south, east, or west. However, through this game I too, now, know where my state are located across the country. I am a visual learner so this helped me as much as the children. On top of it all we had fun playing this game! Now years later and I am purchasing this for my grandchildren.

This game was a hit with my children growing up. Now they are requesting it for their families. A nice, short competition between siblings with great travel info. We always play this when we get together! Also you have the best price!

Is this the whole game or only an expansion pack to add to the base game that you buy seperately?

This game was purchased as a family Christmas gift to remind us of our recent road trip summer vacation.

My 5 year old adores this game. I actually have hidden it for a few days because we have played it multiple times a day every day for 22 days. My husband and I are getting a little burnt out lol.

He’s learned a great deal about national monuments in states we didn’t visit and we enjoy talking about the states we did. He’s changed the rules a little to make the game longer since it goes really quickly. We like that it’s flexible enough to do this.

Great game! Not too complicated for young kids as long as they can read. My 4 year old who does not read will not sit for the game even if she’s playing with help. My son insisted on playing this game at his 6th birthday a few weeks ago. His 5 and 6 year old friends were uninterested, but his 7 year old friends enjoyed it.

Hope this helps!
