I picked up a geography game - Where in the World, A World Awareness Game - at a yard sale recently for $1. I love yard sale finds! It has 6 different levels, ranging from getting familiar with which region of the world a country belongs to, to relating geographic knowledge to current events. B and I played it twice last week and had fun. In fact, he's asked me if we can play it again, but we didn't have time. I need to schedule in game time for the educational games we have! The game was originally published in 1986 and there have been a lot of country changes since then! However, when we came upon an "outdated" issue, such as Germany being divided into two separate countries on the board, it became a learning opportunity. I spoke to B about why Germany was divided into East and West and how they came to be united.
Here's B rolling back and forth on his stability ball as we play. We played level 1, finding which of the 6 regions - Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America and Oceania - each country card we were dealt belonged to. Each card has a picture of the country's flag as well as the following information: capital; population; monetary unit; literacy rate; major languages; major religions; major export; major import; major seacoasts; it's size ranking in that region. And although details such as population and monetary unit may have significantly changed in the last 26 years, it's still a great way to learn basics (especially for my cost) and I recommend it.
I looked the game up on both Amazon's and Toys R Us' websites to see if they offer the game and how up-to-date it is. I didn't find date information on Amazon, but the description on Toys R Us referenced the games introduction 16 years ago, so it sound like their copy was last updated in 1996. But if you find it at a yard sale, give it a try and let me know how you like it!
