It was just the other day that the American President, while congratulating the Super Bowl winners - the Kansas City Chiefs, told the world that they've made the whole of Kansas proud. That's very nice except that the Chiefs play in Missouri rather than in Kansas. A simple mistake that anyone could make but it just goes to show that sometimes our geographical knowledge isn't all it could be. I guess that, while we are exposed more than ever to news from all over the world, we don't take a lot of it in. Looking at a map myself the other day I was astounded that Kazakhstan is actually bigger than India. What we really need is a world game like Monopoly that puts places like Ukraine and Kazakhstan on the board and improves our knowledge and love for far flung places. 

Here we have a game for iOS that could very well fill that void. Freddy - Play, Tour, Learn is an augmented reality, educational travel game that helps you discover cities from all over the world and the many treasures they hold. I mention treasures because, apart from obvious delights like the Louvre in Paris and the Great Wall in China, this informative, fun and colorful game lets you walk, explore and discover all the sights of a city on your smartphone while collecting a treasure trove of points, rewards and prizes along the way.
