MAPOMINOES - The Ultimate Geography Game
MAPOMINOES is the game that takes you to the edge of the world!
This portable game is fun, easy to learn, educational and highly addictive.
It's like dominoes but with maps, as you build a map of Europe, by connecting countries that share a common border. Stay one step ahead of your opponents, as you race to be the first player to play all your country cards on the table and win the game.
Block your opponents by holding on to France or Germany or open up the Baltic States by playing Russia. Take a boat through the North Sea to the United Kingdom or transit by train through Spain to Portugal. Try not to get stuck with San Marino, or landlocked with Liechtenstein as you watch the country cards spread across the table. The excitement builds as you have fewer and fewer cards left to play, but less space to play them in as you reach the edge of the world. (The table's edge).
Every country card is different due to their varying border connections and hence no two games are ever the same in this clever game that you will want to play again and again. A simple game with hidden strategic depth that gives it broad appeal to both children and adults.
