Stack The States (Free, $0.99 for Full Version)
This game combines sound educational material with an incredible "gaming" sense. The object of the game is fairly simple. You are asked various questions about the 50 states including capitals, state shapes, abbreviations, bordering states, location on the map and even nicknames. If you choose the correct state, you get to actually pick it up, move it, rotate it and place it wherever you want. Your goal is to carefully create a stack of states that reaches the checkered line.
The laws of gravity and physics play an integral role in how the states react to being stacked. Will you get three large states that are easily stackable and reach the checkered line right off the bat? Or, will you get a slew of smaller states that don't stack easily and fall down, collapsing the tower? Perhaps they'll tumble off the platform completely!
