What our experts think
Our testers were excited to play this board game that helps children develop their geographical knowledge and understanding of the world. The instructions were clear and our older testers enjoyed drawing on their existing geography knowledge. Although some of our younger testers did find some of the questions quite challenging, it just meant there was a little guesswork involved as all the questions are multiple choice and you can reduce the number of answers given to younger kids to make it 50:50.
Family friendly board games like this are great for encouraging turn-taking as they allow children to communicate and wait for each other to answer their question. This also teaches children about friendly competition and learning how to deal with winning and losing, which is brilliant for their personal, social and emotional development.
