The Scrambled States of America

The United States have gotten scrambled looking for adventure in new parts of the country—and it’s up to your child to help them find their way home! In this fast-paced card game, players are challenged to identify state capitals, nicknames and shapes by matching “Scramble” cards to “State” cards. Speed’s the name of the game—only one state card can be slapped onto each scramble card, so it pays to move quickly. Gone are the days of dry geography lessons; kids enjoy this super-charged gameplay, quirky state personalities and friendly competition so much, they’ll be brushing up on map facts—and reaping educational rewards—for fun!
