'What a great quality boardgame @OakaBooks This will be a great way to engage students in map skills and revision.' Mrs Skerratt, geography teacher.

Silver Medal Winner at 2020 Geographical Association Awards.


Map reading skills are a vital part of the CE geography syllabus, KS3 geography syllabus and are also a great life skill. However, learning about maps in the classroom can be a rather 'dry' experience, but not any longer!

We have teamed up with Ordnance Survey to produce Geogo!, the map skills game that combines map reading skills with geography knowledge in a fun, competitive game. Designed by Simon Lewis, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Head of Geography at St. Andrew’s School (Woking) and the ISEB’s Geography Editor and Geography Setting Team Leader, you can be sure that Geogo! includes all the map reading skills needed for CE and KS3 geography.

Simon is a keen advocate of kinaesthetic learning, (especially games) and strongly supports engaging with our environments and bringing the real world into the classroom.

Geogo! brings map extracts to life in this board game for up to 4 players (8 if working in pairs) racing to win knowledge skill award cards before making the charge back to OS headquarters to win the game! 

Our testing teams were asked if they thought the game would help with their map skills revision? 'Definitely' was the answer. Need we say more?

Including four different map extracts (Liverpool, Hereford, Mumbles and Aviemore), Geogo! gives players the chance to use 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 maps covering urban, rural, coastal and mountainous terrain.

There are 240 questions (60 questions for each map) covering:

  • Symbols
  • Direction
  • Distance
  • Grid References
  • Relief
  • Landforms
  • Settlement
  • Transport
  • Industry
  • Land use

Customers who bought Geogo! also purchased:

On The Map (Global Locations Game), Tectonic Plates, Volcanoes & Earthquakes, Weather & Climate, Rivers, Erosion & Flooding, Coastal Erosion.

Perfect balance of fun and education

Fast delivery, quality product and interesting game which really made it easy to learn. I had fun to as well as a 10 yr old, taking me back to my geography classes in the 90s which I loved.

Excellent family game

We're really pleased with this game. I love all things to do with maps and board games so this was perfect for me! We played it as a family (2 boys aged 11 & 13). The youngest enjoyed it so much he asked to play it again straightaway. It's a very well thought out game with a good variety of questions to test different map skills. We're looking forward to being able to expand our game with more maps and questions.

A great, educational game

This is a fun game which helps us all improve our map-reading skills. Unfortunately, we all became frustrated when some of the questions related to symbols which weren’t on the specified legends for the maps in question. It is easy to get round that problem by using both legends but it’s a shame - why specify a legend but then have questions about a map for which the answers cannot be found on the legend specified? However, this is still a great game from which you can learn whilst having fun - just check the other legend if you can’t find the symbol you need.
