Traveling across the country, players will answer 500 questions that cover the major cities, landmarks, history and geographical features of each state.
When they're low on fuel, players can top off their tank at the Fuel Station, using their knowledge of national geography to earn the fuel they need for the game.
From the Honolulu State Spelling Bee to the Flagstaff Flag Game, Geography Drive USA™ includes fun mini games that encourage players to master specific information, including state flags and capitals.

HOW YOU'LL KNOW THEY'RE LEARNING
A quick look at their scoreboard will tell you how many states a player has cleared and how much cash they've earned by successfully answering questions.
It takes three correct answers to clear a state and change its color, so if all 12 Midwest states are orange, you'll know they've answered at least 36 questions.
The Trophy Case
Each time a player clears a region or scores another major achievement, they'll earn a trophy, making a quick trip through the trophy case a great way to see which regions they've mastered and what they have yet to achieve.
