More stock due 28/8.  'What a great quality boardgame @OakaBooks This will be a great way to engage students in map skills and revision.' Mrs Skerratt, geography teacher.

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.

Great learning tool.

Firstly, when it arrived I noticed the box was a lot smaller than standard board games - great use of materials and cutting down on unnecessary packaging. I played it with my 14 year old daughter first and we found it ok - good quality equipment and easy to read instructions. Once we got into the game, we could see that over time more questions and maps would be needed as you go through them quite quick. However, some of the questions are quite challenging and this is where the education part comes in. You can make the game short by only collecting a set of agreed cards or longer if you want to get the whole set. We chose the longer game as we were landing on squares and if you already had that card, then you just miss a go, which could become boring to younger ones who are not winning cards! (We are not competitive here at all!) We are looking forward to using it again with more people as I think this will make it better and more challenging? Overall a good game that will help young people with Geography, Map Skills, Scouting/Guiding, Learning Road signs for driving lessons and general socialization and team work. Enjoy, thanks x

Geogo! Making us all learn

I purchased Geogo! to use with my two home educated children aged 11 and 13. SInce buying the game, it has been used almost daily. We have all had a bit of a steep learning curve with map reading but I guess that is the point!

Fabulous: educational and fun!!

Played as a family (2 boys age 12 & 13) and we all absolutely loved it!! We will be using this with our Scout group too. Would also love a digital version to share via Zoom (other platforms are available) at the moment. And I can see us needing an extension pack of new maps and cards pretty soon...!! Thank you Oaka :)
