The Scrambled States of America Game

Overview

Whoever said that learning about U.S. geography had to be boring must not have read The Scrambled States of America.

We fell head-over-heels for Laurie Keller’s hilarious story and knew that it had the making for a great game. As with her book, we hope our game provides a fun way to enrich basic knowledge of U.S. geography. Players learn the names, capitals, nicknames, shapes and positions of the states through a myriad of visual teasers, language riddles and geography ...

    Wonderful Educational Game !!!

    This is by far the best educational game I have ever played.I bought it for my 10 year old and it's now our favorite family game. My daughter is home from college and she and her friends had a blast playing it with us! Learning geography is an added bonus to the fun that this game provides.

    Love this game!

    My kids (7yrs and 5yrs) have so much fun playing this game and so do I. It works better when they are able to read, but we are still able to play with my 5 year old who is just learning. After only a few times playing, they were able to quickly identify most of the states.

    Scrambled State of America Game

    This is more of a whimscial game and not an educational game. Although it can teach children about the location of the state and the cards include the capital and the nickname. It is a fun competive game of speed and fast thinking.

    The best game, have since age 2 1/2

    My mother-in-law bought this game for my son when he was 2 1/2 he loved it then and still does at age 4 now. He has known all 50 states and capitals by heart since he received this game. When I first looked at it and saw the age was for 8 year olds and up, I thought he's too young, I was wrong. This is the best game, your child will be having fun and not realize they are learning at the same time.

    Engaging, fun, adjustably competitive, & one round is 15 minutes

    My 6 and 9 year old have a great time playing this game- it's in their top 5 board games list. I've brought it to soccer practice and played it with the siblings ranging in age from 4 to 12 and they had so much fun that they didn't want to stop playing at the end of practice. (I did lead the game at practice, and the point was for everyone to play a card, and we helped each other- less competition = no fights or sad faces.)

    Regarding intellectual rigor, the goal of this game is to teach state locations and capitals in a fun way. By no means does one need to know more than a few to begin playing this game. And the wonderful thing is that after playing each time, the student will have learned a few more locations and capitals. Keep playing and keep learning. This is how my 6 yr old is learning the states and capitals.

    What if your student already knows all the states and capitals, as does my 9 yr old? He and I compete against each other since our level of knowledge of states&capitals is nearly the same. The best challenges are the ones to find the state in your own hand that is closest to the target state.

    Fun educational game

    This is a fun educational game. I'm glad we purchased it. We gave one to my sons 2nd grad classroom for a christmas gift also. I would buy it again. We have a 5 year old and an 8 year old and we can all play together.

    My kids wanted to play this again and again

    The game uses cards to help you familiarize yourself with the USA. It asks questions about the states and you have to use your map provided to help you answer the questions.

    Excellent game

    We got this game for our 8 yr old son. He really enjoyed the book Scrambled States of America so we thought the game would be a hit too and it was! Great way to learn the states and have fun. Adults do have to slow themselves down.

    Fun Educational Game

    I don't think this game is worthy of awards but it is a fun and educational game for all ages. It is good to play as a family and best for the adults to "slow down" and let the young ones win.

    WONDERFUL!

    This game is wonderful! I happen to stumble upon it and got it for my 7 year old son, who loves maps. He didn't want to play it at first but now he asks to play it. We took to my cousin's house and her 11 year old begged her to get it for him. We now have this game, Scramble States 2, the puzzle and the book. We have even brought copies to give as presents.

    Who says US geography isn't fun to learn?

    This game is easy to learn to play. My two younger children ages 6 and 9 love this game. They have even won against adults. They have learned much about the location, capitals, nicknames and shapes of the states while having fun.

    Excellent game for whole family

    This game is fun and easy to learn. It's also really laid back, by that I mean the rules are easy to bend for younger children, and the older children don't seen to mind! Both my kids have asked me to pull this game out several times, and I even found them playing it together when I wasn't available. Not to mention it's an excellent way to learn U.S. geography, but the kids just think it's just plain fun! I highly recommend this game.

    Great Game

    Learning to play the game was quick & easy. Two adults and one child played. Game goes pretty fast. The first time, we had to play three games in a row and played beyond bed time.

    Great for all ages!

    My kids love this game! As long as the tots can read, this game will be a hit. They'll even learn a little US geography while they're at it. Go for it!

    Grandkids want to play it all the time.

    I gave this game to one of my grandchildren for Christmas and she absolutely loves it. She and her brother carry it along with them when they come to visit and beg me to play it with them. The children are aged 6 and 8. A fun game for the kids and also an excellent learning tool.

    This MIGHT help!

    "Posted March 25, 2008, 12:00 AM EST: I lost the book that goes with this game and also the instructions. My sons is now 12 and I am now the Activity Director in a small nursing home. I think my residents would really enjoy this game. Can you help me?"<BR/><BR/>While I don't know if the book is available at www.gamewright.com, you can download the rules from their site as a PDF file.
