DestiNation USA was a surprisingly fun board game designed to educate kids about US geography and facts while challenging them to travel through the country to reach as many destinations to collect state chips and Destination Cards as they can. The game ends when five Destination Cards or all forty-eight chips (game did not included Alaska or Hawaii) are collected. With the help of Special Cards, such as Cruise Control, Alternate Route and Fly Cards, players can strategically move around the country to maximize points. While collecting Destination Cards, players learn of interesting destinations in each state, such as Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. This game was a good length, and was fun, strategic and educational. The board design and cards were especially impressive. My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the game and look forward to playing it regularly.
