Awesome but,

You may notice the title the reason I am not giving it a five star is
Because Alaska is not to scale I mean when you look at your states there Alaska is actually the size it should be I don’t mean definitely because Alaska can span pretty much all the way across the contiguous 48 states but in the game, Alaska is almost the same size as Texas! And yes I get it could be TO big but why not make it just 2x the size of Texas? Also totally but not really off topic in stack the countries, RUSSIA IS TINY!! why not make it at least the size of the USA? I hope these things could be changed in the future

From ages 4-65 we play, learn and improve our health!

I play several games to keep my 65 year old memory sharp and it never hurts to learn more about my country. After watching, my 4 year old granddaughter wanted to learn. She can’t read so first I’d give clues- letters in the states so she could find the answer. It wasn’t long before she recognized the states by shape and I had her memorize the names. Two weeks later she was playing MAP IT! Most times she maps without strikes. Next Connect It. Her high score is 18, mine 14. Then came my 7 year old grandson. He has the advantage of being autistic, able to read, so caught on in a few days. He has the capitals, states and abbreviations memorized already and has moved on to Stack the Countries. It’s something they can play together. He reads the questions to her if I’m not there. Finding an educational game they can do together is a perk I never imagined. Thank you so much!

Now I’m on to Stack the Countries. Challenging for sure, but what an accomplishment if I succeed!

The most awesome game ever.

I always wanted to learn geography when I was eight years old, so my parents allowed me to have the app when I showed them a video of how to play Stack the States 2. I was loving this app and had educated me, but it was kind of tough when I need to know the state's nickname and landmarks. I noticed I could turn the landmarks and state's nicknames off. This was way more fun when it just wasn't stacking states. It made it way more fun when there were the bonus games, Map It, Connect 2, and Capital Tap. The last bonus game, Capital Tap, was the hardest for me, and I always fail trying to find the capital. However, I rate this a 10/10, and I will love it forever. :)
