I love the original game of Sequence and have spent gobs of time playing it at Family Reunions over the years. Quite a while ago, I picked up the States and Capitals version, but we have never played it…until today.

It is a great game for teaching the capitals of the good ‘ol U.S.of A. and for teaching simple strategy! We played with a map of the America next to us and made it a rule to find the state on the map when we played a card. Children that can’t read yet can still play by matching up the pictures of the states, so I think it would be good for about four and up (the box says seven and up). The board has the names and pictures of the states and the cards have the picture of the state and the name of the capital. When you play a card, you put one of your pieces on the corresponding state on the board. The goal is to get five pieces in a row and to prevent your opponents from doing so. Keziah is now putting together puzzles of the United States and asking “what is the capital of South Dakota?,” so it is inspiring other learning activities as well.
