About the Game


The game does not just involve moving around the board from one country to another, but also incorporates general questions. The question-answer cards also include visual cards. The board itself is colourful and resembles an unusual map. Dotting the board are varied symbols which represent a country or a continent, a physical feature such as a monument or an ocean, a country's people or specific places. The nice part of this game is that even though it is designed for 2 players, a child can even play solo and not get bored.

Who can play


The game can be played by children up to 9 years of age. I would advise older kids and parents to join in too, if for nothing else than to increase your knowledge about people and places around the globe!

Price and where to buy


The cost of the game is Rs.285/-, inclusive of all taxes. It can be purchased online at Amazon India (check for delivery charges), where lower priced offers at Rs.270/- is available: http://www.amazon.in/Creative-Educational-Aids-0811-Safari/dp/B009313E7S/
