A couple of years ago we bought a geography board game called 10 Days in Europe that has been a wonderful addition to our homeschool. It is so much fun, I really recommend it for anyone looking for a new game to add to your collection. I play this game with my 6 and 8 year olds, though I would say it’s more suited to the 8+ crowd (wonderful even for adults!). I have to give DD (my 6 year old) quite a bit of help when we play this game, though she’s getting better.
The game comes with a heavy map and thick cardboard country cards. Each player gets 10 cards. The object is to be the first to design a trip across Europe. The players take turns drawing and discarding cards from the three discard piles. You must travel from country to neighboring country:
In the picture above you can see we traveled from Russia to Norway. Then we took a ship across the Baltic Sea to Denmark, on to German and the Netherlands.
You can also take a plane from one country to another as long as the plane and the two countries are the same colors. (See the photo above.) You cannot begin or end your journey on a plane or boat.
You can draw a card or discard onto any of the three piles (see the photo above).
We sure love this game and pull it out about once a month to help build our geography knowledge.
I took these photos a while ago, but never got around to creating a post. I’ve been getting ready for next year and just purchased the sister-game 10 Days in Africa so it was on my mind! I’m not affiliated in any way to the company, I just really found this game a wonderful addition to our homeschool!
