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 geography 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 ages. However, the clues are not easy and young children will struggle to answer the majority of the questions.
