Editorial Reviews

" This game is ideal for rainy days at the cottage or backseat travel.  Best of all, it requires no batteries or headache tablets for the adults who have to listen.  In fact, they'll probably enjoy the chance to play."

Quill & Quire

"Oh, Canada!  This trivia game, which features two decks with 144 cards and over 1000 questions about Canadiana, kept our young scholars fascinated."
