PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a game where students spin and flip for a latitude number then spin and flip for a longitude number. Play progresses until someone gets 3 in a row. This product provides two color printable spinners (spinners work with a pencil tip and paperclip) and directions for play. Students will need 2 'tokens' of some sort to flip. The first token needs an N for North and an S for south the second an E for East and a W for West. Students will also need a world map with latitude/longitude lines as their gameboard. The best one I've found is here: http://www.mapsofworld.com/world-maps/world-map-with-latitude-and-longitude.html.

On  February 24, 2013,  Buyer said:
it seems as though something is missing. there was not a "north-south" token, or an "east-west" token. also, it tells you in the directions to put a dot on your world map...not one of those either. the object is to get 4 in a row (on what??--is there a game sheet??) Please let me know if I am misunderstanding the game or if something is missing. thanks

Hello there! I'm so sorry for the confusion!! For the tokens I used poker chips and penned on a N/S and E/W on the tokens. Truthfully, even a coin will work with heads being N or E and tails being S or W. As far as a map is concerned, I couldn't include a map without breaking copyright. I'd be HAPPY to email you the one that I use if you provide your email. It is a simple world map with flat lines that cross (rather than curved ones) They can get a tic tac toe in any way you desire (3 across, 4 across, up/down, etc.) really, you can establish the rules.

Again, thank you for your patience and we'll make this right!
