DESCRIPTION
This game was designed by TV star John Davidson and his wife.

This game is very similar to the Crazy Eights card game.  Players start
with hands of 8 cards which come from a deck consisting of states (USA
edition) or nations (Africa, Europe, Middle East, World editions), bodies
of water, and wild cards. Each of the state or nation cards have the name
of the location on one side of the card and a map on the other side,
showing contiguous locations.

The
object of the game is to get rid of cards in your hand by playing a
card with something that shares a borderline with the last card played. To
make the game easier, Wild cards can be played at any time because they
are considered a match and can then be named as any location in the deck
except for those in the player's hand. When a player cannot play a
contiguous card, cards are then drawn from the deck and added to the
player's hand until a card can be played.

To make the game interesting, if a player is forced to draw a card, this
player can play a card that does not share a borderline and hope to not be
challenged. This player can be "Challenged" and if the challenging player
is correct, the challenged player must take back the card and take a card
from the challenging player's hand. If the challenge is incorrect, the
challenging player takes a card from the deck and the challenged player
gets another turn.
