This portable game is fun, easy to learn, educational and highly addictive and makes a great present for any family member interested in geography or travel. It’s like dominoes but with maps, as you build a map of Europe, by connecting countries that share a common border. Stay one step ahead of your opponents, as you race to be the first player to play all your country cards on the table and win the game. Block your opponents by holding on to France or Germany or open up the Baltic States by playing Russia. Take a boat through the North Sea to the United Kingdom or transit by train through Spain to Portugal. Try not to get stuck with San Marino, or landlocked with Liechtenstein as you watch the country cards spread across the table. The excitement builds as you have fewer and fewer cards left to play, but less space to play them in as you reach the edge of the world. (The table’s edge). Cleverly designed so that you don’t need to know your geography to play, but playing rapidly improves your knowledge. A simple game with hidden strategic depth that gives it broad appeal to both children and adults, that you will want to play again and again. Suitable for 2-5 players. Age 8+. “This modern take on dominoes uses countries instead of numbers to construct a map of the world – a clever way to pass the time” The Sunday Times “Stick this in the Christmas stocking of a travel-mad loved one.” The Independent on Sunday (Get This section). MAPOMINOES – The game that takes you to the edge of the world.
