The Capitals Game – nerd games

What is the Capital of Slovenia? Who has the largest land mass Canada or Australia? Whose GDP is larger - Australia or Russia? Great for teaching kids (and adults) about the world!

How to Play

  • The game can be played in many different ways. Draw a card and take turns to ask questions and answer facts about the flag, country, capital, language, and so on.
  • Option 1 – Individual
    • Individuals take it in turn to draw a card and then a specific individual has to answer. They are normally given a time limit. Depending on the difficulty you may give hints.
  • Option 2 – Group based
    • A player starts off by drawing a card. They ask their question to the group – the first person to answer correctly gets a point and they get to draw the next card. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
