Here is how it works. Players race fleets of jets from city to city following colored route lines across a large laminated map of the world. The first player to complete the round-the-world flight wins the game. It is an exciting race that combines strategy with luck, in cooperation with good-natured competition. The simplicity of play makes Take Off!® the ideal introduction to basic location geography for young children, yet it is interesting and challenging for the whole family.

Can my six-year-old really play Take Off!®
Yes! It’s best if mom or dad or an older playmate helps read the city and country names, but a child who can recognize colors and follow a few simple rules can play Take Off!®
If a six-year-old can play, is Take Off!® just a kids game?
Not at all. Special Take Off!® country profiles provide multiple levels of play, making the game fun and challenging for the whole family
How up-to-date is the map?
We monitor changes in the world on a regular basis and update both the Take Off!® map and the country profile cards as warranted.

The large, detailed world map and unique country profile cards featuring maps, flags, vital information, and tantalizing geographic clues bring the world to the home or classroom like no other game. Take Off!® goes beyond mere trivia to systematically build geographic awareness. Many products teach. Others entertain. Take Off!® stands out by doing both.
