Scrambled States of America
This is a really nice, fun game to get kids familiar with basic US geography. I'm reading a book about how cognitive psychology applies to learning, and one of it's basic points is that "people remember what they think about." Well, this game does a nice job making kids think about a variety of things -- which states are adjacent, which states are close to each other, state names and capitals. It's simple, fun, nicely balanced, and teaches the right things, I think. You go, Gamewright!
