Ph: 800-654-6357

This is a new game that is great for helping the child learn more about the United States. It teaches geography while you travel across America by car, train, boat, and plane. You get to see tourist attractions in all 50 states. The game is a colorful U.S. game board, with six cars and 110 colored picture cards of the top tourist attractions. The first player to visit seven different tourist attractions wins. The instructions are easy to follow and the whole family can play together. You choose a car and place it on the state. The players draw cards to see who goes first. Each player gets six cards. You either drive your car by moving through one state in any direction, or you use a card to drive to a more distant state by train, boat or train. That is where strategy comes in. You have to figure out the best route to get to your destination by using the cards. There are also vacation buster cards that cancel flights, report train strikes, hurricanes, and so on. The couple that started this game, Susan and Del Hunt, found a great way to mix business and travel.
