HOW TO PLAY. The goal of this game is to correctly place the states of a particular country in their proper locations on the country map.

First, select the country for which you want to test your memory.

I suggest you begin with the country where you live, if it is one of the available countries in this game, since you probably know your own country's states best.

The countries available in this map making game include Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, and France.

There's also maps of Germany, India, Japan, Nepal, New Zealand, Russia, United Kingdom, and the United States. In addition, you can also test your knowledge of the location of the countries in Africa.

Note: Those interested in U.S. geography might next want to memorize the list of U.S. State Capitals.

To start filling in the map, place the cursor on the state (or country, for Africa) displayed at top left. Hold down the left mouse button, and drag the state to its correct location on the map. Drop the state in its proper place by letting go of the left mouse button.

If you make a mistake, the game shows the state's correct position in red. Drag the state there. You do not get points for a state if you missed its location.

Think of this as a great memory training tool. The more countries you can successfully map, the stronger your memory for spatial locations will be.

Not only that, but you will probably be able to impress people from these countries with your knowledge of their own!

If you want to print out a world map to practice on, see the free printable world map page.

Once you've mastered the location of the states in your own country, try map making some other countries of the world. For most people, this will be very challening.

As an American, for example, I am definitely not familiar where all the states in India are. Not yet, anyway.

GAME TIP #1: Many games on this site such as Curveball were built with Adobe Flash. To play these games, you must allow the free Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser. If you don't see an animation in the red rectangle above, click in the red rectangle and activate your Flash Player. Then the Flash-based games should open for you.

If you see a message that the Adobe Flash Player is "blocked", go to your browser's Settings page and change Block to Ask First, if possible.

If the red rectangle is empty, your browser might not have the Flash Player. To check this, follow the steps on Adobe's Flash Player Help page.

GAME TIP #2: If you cannot get the Flash-based brain games to work, try the HTML5 brain games instead. HTML5 games do not use the Adobe Flash Player. They work in modern browsers automatically. All the HTML5 games are listed on this page.
