What year was Close Encounters first in theaters? What state gets the most snow each year? How many albums has Madonna sold?
It‘s likely that you don‘t know any of these facts. But you might have a rough idea, and that‘s good enough, because America is a party game where being close counts. And if you have absolutely no idea what the answer is? Take advantage of your friends who do know. And if you realize that no one (including you) seems to know what the answer is, you can bet against everyone!
In America, each player uses their knowledge of pop culture, food, products, games, sports, and the history of America to get more points than their opponents. And if your opponents know something that you don’t, you can leverage their knowledge to your advantage, scoring more than them with clever play. The cards have full color clues to help you, as well as interesting factoids for every question in the game. With almost 1000 questions covering more than 300 topics, America will be a favorite for family and friends for a long time!
