Game Board 2: Map of the world
  • Print the map of the world or draw a world map on a carton board
  • Draw a line from a country to an open space on the map. Then, draw a square and make the drawing of the corresponding animal, flag or monument. Cover the drawing with a piece of paper or a small post-it so the drawing is hidden.
  • Colour the cover in blue (monument), red (animal) or green (flag).
  • Make sure you add all the 24 (3 times 8) elements from the discs on the map.

A step-by-step guide to play the game


Put the panels next to each other on the ground and divide the group in two teams.


The first team turns the first topic disc. The arrow will land on one of the three squares: animals, monuments or flags/capitals.


Then, the player turns the disc of the corresponding topic.


The player tries to find the animal, the capital or the monument the arrow points at on the big map by opening the doors. The colour of the doors corresponds to the colours used on the topics disc: red for animals, green for flags/capitals and blue for monuments.


When a player finds the corresponding drawing on the map, the team gets one point.


The first team to get 5 points wins the game.


  • Make sure to choose countries, animals and monuments that are relevant for your region.
