When he was not annoying the hell out of us today, the boy invented a pretty fun game that I thought I'd share. He calls it the Crosscountry Game. You only need a road map of the United States (or whatever country you choose) and your brains.
The object of the game is to pick a route from one state to another, across the entire country, and name three cities in each state you choose. You can change your directions to any bordering state of the state you're in, but it's smartest to go pretty much straight through the fewest states you can.
For example, say you're driving from North Carolina to California. Your first 3 cities would be in North Carolina, then you could choose between South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, or Tennessee as your next state, and so on.
This was a lot more challanging than you would thing, and we're all very good in geography. It's also a lot of fun. But you need to have a roadmap so you can check the answers. Stumble It! JBlog Me
