Not only is this a great game but it is also very educational, even if you don’t realise it. The National Geographic Challenge is a quiz game that lives up to the “challenge” part of its name. There’s no shortage of easy and difficult questions divided up in regions – North America, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Australia. Start a game for up to four players and choose an avatar.
You can try to answer 40, 60 or 80 of the game’s timed questions. The games are complemented by impressive photography and video from the National Geographic archive. The National Geographic Challenge will test kids’ knowledge with questions like: In what year did Madagascar gain independence from France? In which country does the River Niger reach the sea?
The game is available on Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3.
