Object of the game:

The first player to visit six states, collect a State Card from each and return to his/her home state is the winner!

Set Up:

Divide the State Cards into color piles - orange, pink, purple, green, yellow and blue. Shuffle the piles. Place these piles next to the Game Board so all six color piles are visible.

Separate the Question Card decks so that the 3rd and 4th Grade questions are in one pile and the 5th Grade and up questions are in another pile. Place the Question Card piles on the side of the Game Board opposite the State Cards.

Each player is given one Score Card.


How to Play:

1. At the beginning of each game, players decide which level questions they will be answering: a) Level 1 - 3rd and 4th Grades or b) Level 2 - 5th grade and Up

2. Each player selects an Airplane Pawn and places it on the state that he/she is from.

3. Players receive one State Card from the bottom of each State Card pile for a total of six states (players should have six states of different colors - orange, pink, purple, green, yellow and blue). Players must visit each of these states and answer a geography question correctly in order to place the State Card on the corresponding color of their Score Card.

4. Once each player has six State Cards, he/she should locate those states on the Game Board and plan the quickest route in which to visit each state. Players can place their State Cards in front of them in the route order.

5. Players move from state to state according to the amount rolled on the die. Players cannot land on the same state twice in one turn and must move the full number of states rolled.

6. Each state may not have more than one Airplane Pawn on it at a time.

7. Each player rolls the die. The player with the highest roll (Player 1) plays first. He/she rolls the die again and moves from state to state the specific number rolled on the die.

8. When a player lands on a state for which he/she has a State Card, the player draws a Question Card and hands it to the player to their right to read the question on the card. If the player answers the question correctly, that player places the State Card on their Score Card. That player’s turn is over. Play moves clockwise.

9. If a player does not answer the question correctly, his/her turn is over. He/she can answer a question on the next turn without rolling the die and moving.
