Description Edit | History

OBJECT:
To be the winning photographer by earning the greatest number of points. YOU EARN POINTS BY:

  • traveling to your assigned destinations on the Map Board.
  • Being the first to fill your portfolio with the 6 photo cards in your portfolio.
  • Getting rid of photo cards that don't fit your portfolio list, as they count against you at the end of the game.
  • Demonstrating your knowledge of geo by answering continent card questions for tokens
  • Getting lucky breaks (drawing even chance cards)

This is basically an educational game of trivia about geography, which includes a great number of cards depicting nice NatGeo photos of every country around the world. The use of clues make it suitable for most age of players.
