My Take

I think this is for much younger kids. I supposed the game aspect of it forces you to look at its physical size and shape, but I don't see that it adds anything to the learning experience.

How I Use It

The jenga-esque aspect of then dropping the countries so they balance and do not fall off the wall is somewhat purpose less and defeats interest in the game for many. It is basically a review of key locations and capitals of foreign countries. In my opinion, there must be better tools, I prefer Tapquiz maps. It is merely matching capital with the country, but it is to the point.
