Taught my daughter all the states  heathrd  5 star

She learned so much from spending time together playing this game! I even rebought it when I switched my OS. She loves stacking more than the questions but she got to know most of the answers and she knows the shapes of states better than I do. Winning new games in the system was very motivating. She also liked winning all 50 states. We got this first when she was 5 and at 7 she mastered it but still really enjoys it.

Awesome Education!  mjstoddard  5 star

I’ve been playing this from around 2011-2012 maybe even longer and it’s amazing! When I was in my classroom and we were having a group challenge against two groups in the classroom and it was about capitals I knew all of them because of this app! Everyone asked how I knew all of them and I said Stack of States everyone wanted to get the app! This app is super helpful if you want to know everything about the states!!

Great learning app it is helpful and fun


HORRIBLE!!!  Chris42700  1 star

The app was fun at first. Then it became the same thing over and over again. Some things are really easy and some are soo hard! This app does not help you learn at all. In fact, I think it confuses me more then helps learn. Go spend your time on a good app.


Good, but needs to be better.  Blingy74  3 star

So the game is AWESOME but there’s a glitch. When you get all 50 states and then you play again it makes you give up or bet all your states to the nation. And when you do this, it says Congratilations, you’ve earned 51 states! There are not 51 United States. Please Fix this bug David!

Stack the States  Joycee G5  5 star

My grandson started playing this when he was 4 years old! He was captivated by it and quickly learned all state capitals and positions and shapes! His older sister was a bit jealous.. he loved the stacking challenge too( as does grandma!). He moved on to stack the countries. He knows way more than I do about where everything is. I asked him one time "what country is between Russia and China?" He immediately answered "Mongolia"--- and I was amazed! He thought everyone knew that

Cool I guess.

Great game!  Cool I guess.  5 star

Great Game  Az4844  5 star

I got this for my grandkids but got addicted to this myself! I love it! And all the kids loved playing it while learning so much about the states. I especially love the map it game. I can easily name and place all the states now. This is a fun way to learn the states. Highly recommend.

Aced the states quiz in school  Fairfax Reader  5 star

My 7th grader's social studies teacher thinks she's a geography genius. She finished the blank state map faster than anyone he's ever given it to. In reality she's just been playing this for the last few years on and off. Both of my kids loved this one and I'm about to download stack the countries. Worth the few bucks.
