geographyI thought I knew my geography, but after ten attempts to locate the Tabernas Desert, which I learned is the only desert in Europe, I was brought to my knees! The cool thing about World Geography Games is that, despite my frustration, I still managed to have fun—and something tells me that I’ll never forget where the good old Tabernas Desert is located again.  

World Geography Games gives users their choice of a wide variety of interactive quizzes that include questions about:

  • Countriesgeography 2
  • Capitals
  • Flags
  • Regions
  • Bodies of water
  • Mountains
  • Deserts
  • Metropolitan areas
  • And other topics that will test and challenge your brain

All 193 members of the United Nations (UN) are included in the quizzes. Added to these lists are Taiwan, Kosovo and Vatican City. Not-sovereign nations and territories—Greenland and Puerto Rico, for example—are not included.
