Default Geography game!

So we've recently got another Math game back in the arcade, an older one but it's new to me. I'm glad that they've added a simple math game for the younger kids. Now how about a geograghy game.

It could go something like this: A screen comes up where it's a square of a particular area of the world. The outlines/borders are on the screen. At the bottom there is a key where the names of the countries, continants, oceans are. Then you have to drag the name to the appropriate space. They could even do it so you have to match the flag to the correct country. On the first screen there would only be a couple, and it would get progressively harder.

I don't know whose fault it is but it seems as though our children's knowledge of geography is extremely lacking! I love how WW makes things educational!!!

Let me know what you think!

This would be a great game to add to RamesII Kinzdergarten idea. Maybe for the younger ones a picture of the map with the place names, countries, etc. would pop up on the screen first for a few seconds. And then it would it disappear and the kids would have to place the names in the right location! Of course, every level would get harder with more names on the map to remember. Maybe, even major land marks could be introduced - for example statue of liberty, eiffel tower, etc...

You are absolutely right! I'm totally down with that! See this is why these forums are so cool, someone has the start of an idea and then someone else can tweek it a little to make it that much more better.

I must say I'm a little passionate about this geography idea! I REALLY REALLY think Ganz should look into this!

Thanks again for your input NewfieFan!

Isn't this supposed to be in the Ideas for Ganz section? I think it is a great idea, I would like to see a jigsaw puzzle type of geography quiz.

This is an incredible idea - not only could I use it for myself but I would love for my kids to have a better grasp on geography, both of the United States and the world in general.
