The object of the game is players race their trucks across the country buying and selling goods along the way. The deck of 50 state cards, used to show players where to deliver the packages, also featuring important facts about each state. Reading these facts will help build players knowledge about each state. The player with the most money at the end of the game is the winner. The box contains one of the bifold game board, a deck of 50 state cards, four plastic truck movers, a pad of play money, 16 would packages, spinner, and instructions.
My Opinion: this game reminds me of somebody that would be an over the road trucker as you have truck pieces and you pick up the goods along the way you also learn about all of the 50 states which are great for kids. For example, Kansas is a sunflower state or Jayhawk state, the capital is Topeka, entered the union on January 29, 1861, products airplanes and wheat. State flower sunflower and state bird is Western Meadowlark. It also includes a STEM fact: Amelia Earhart, a famous pilot and explorer, and the first woman to receive a pilot’s license, was born in Kansas. Kansas is still one of the most important states for manufacturing airplanes and producing pilots.
