The Story of the “States and Capitals”
Al wants to be President one day, but he knows how important it is to know about the United States. He does not know very much but decides to take a trip around the United States for his summer vacation. Al plans to learn as much about the states as possible so that he can campaign there years from now. He needs your help to advance in his travels by answering important information along the way. Good luck and learn as much as you can because you might become President one day!!!

Game Directions
The goal of the game is to win every state within the United States by naming it’s capital. The first team to win all 50 states wins the game.

To begin the game each team must have their game pieces. Each set of teams must have a map and be organized to play. A coin is flipped to see who goes first and the game begins.
Select a state from the main playing screen. You will be asked a question next. After you choose your answer, click on the answer. If your answer is correct, put one of your game pieces on the map of the state you won. Your turn is now over and the next team begins. If your answer is incorrect, you do not place a piece on the map. Your turn is over and the next team begins. You may pick any states in any order. You can try as many times as it takes to win the state. You do not have to try the same state again if you answer incorrectly – you may choose to come back to it later. This process continues until one team has Return won all 50 states.
