Enjoy the Fun of Educating our Children on our Precious National Parks!

Be a part of teaching our children about our precious National Parks.  Our children and their children's children will be inheriting these awe-inspiring lands. Help them learn in unique ways to appreciate the magnificent beauty of these lands and why they should treasure and preserve them. Teach them to protect these lands for all of the enjoyment of the people.  And have tons of family fun doing so!

Each game is designed to be educational and engaging, teaching you and your children along the highways of each Park, while learning about special features of the park.  Whether players have visited the park or not they will enjoy unique facts that they may have not learned while visiting, and if they haven't visited the park they get to imagine while playing the game what it would be like to go there. 

It’s Time To Have Some Fun!

You are the first to roll the dice…you travel on the highway in Yellowstone National Park… you just left Roosevelt Arch and are heading towards Old Faithful…you have always wanted to see Old Faithful, but on the way there you have to learn what is going on in the park before you can get to Old Faithful. While traveling along the highway you find out that there is so much more to Yellowstone National Park than what you knew…now you are anxious to learn more and see other great features of the park. Remember, though, others you are traveling along the highway with want to see them too and who ever gets to the 10 major features of the park first WINS the game.

Park Smarts Adventures – Yellowstone is a fun filled, educational and inspirational game for the entire family. Designed with illustrated features of the park, the board game is magnetic and double-sided 18″ x 18″; summer themed on one side and winter themed on the other. The first to visit all ten most popular features of the park is the winner of the game. These features consist of Old Faithful, Inspiration Point, Lamar Valley, Chocolate Pots and more. The game is designed for ages 4 and Up. Plays up to 5 players, and can be played by 10 if a 10 – Piece game is chosen for a pledge. 

The 5 – Piece game is complete with five magnetic maneuvering pieces molded as bicycle, motor home, SUV, convertible and jeep. Each player rolls the dice to move along the highway in each direction they want to go, based on the number on the die they rolled.

 Each piece will be brightly colored for fun entertainment while playing the game.  The 10 – Piece game includes all the vehicles listed above, plus a snowmobile, snowshoes, skis, sled and a snow coach.

There are 3 sections of learning question cards (15 questions in each) and a mystery deck of cards.

Risks and challenges

Now that we have already had a successful Kickstarter last year with our activity books series, we are ready to face any challenges that may arise with manufacturing or fulfillment. To make things simpler and avoid delays out of control, we'll be fulfilling the games out of our own warehouse (in Arizona, USA). We'll be prepared to post updates about any issues and do our best to make it all run smoothly.

Our team has many years of experience with successful manufacturing, fulfillment and shipping. And we strive to be the best at customer support, too!

While there may be some unforeseen events that we may not have control over we will make certain that we communicate at all times to keep you updated should there be any events that you should know about.
