GeoPlunge is more than just facts – it fosters strategic and critical thinking skills.
You can play numerous games at all levels with each GeoPlunge set.
The most basic games are easy to learn and the more complex games build off the easy ones.
Many kids have asked to skip recess because they want to keep playing GeoPlunge – it’s that much fun!
GeoPlunge is fun for families, friends, classrooms, and larger tournaments. We’ve had city-wide school tournaments in Washington, D.C. for over a decade. Contact us to start a tournament in your city.
In this game, each player or team tries to guess the other players’ card after receiving clues. Whoever guesses the other sides’ card with the fewest clues wins. Clues are drawn from cards and include the capital, cities in the states, states that border the state, when the state entered the Union, who was President when the state entered the Union, etc.
Test your knowledge of state size, population and entry into the Union while playing a game that includes strategy and critical thinking. Beginners play the game face up and more advanced players play with the cards face down so that players have to know the order without looking.
In this trivia game, you will learn about rivers, lakes, mountains, parks, US territories, history and sports-related geography and much more.
