Geography Challenge version 1.0 is a modest HyperCard stack for Macs that is actually two games: Country Challenge and USA Challenge. When it was originally released (1993) and last updated (1996) it featured only Country Challenge, a multiple choice style game that can be played by up to four players. Country Challenge will effectively test your knowledge of worldwide or regional capitals, and this version has been updated to be politically current as of 2002. The other game, USA Challenge, is new with this version, and features a colorful map of the USA instead of choices. From experience, it is simple enough that kids enjoy playing it. Expect them to soon master all the U.S. states and capitals. Once the "Play" button is clicked, the game will display the name of a state, capital, or "other city" and the object is to click on the corresponding state as quickly as possible. If all 50 states are clicked on fast enough, you will earn a spot on the High Scores listing. Because Geography Challenge is a HyperCard stack, you also need to download Apple's free HyperCard Player application before you can use Geography Challenge, assuming it is not already on your Macintosh. Like the original version, Geography Challenge version 1.0 is postcardware. If you like it, please send us a postcard.
