          History Plunge game

          I bought this game for my daughter who is a history teacher. We have enjoyed playing this game. I have learned a lot.

          Perfect Gift for the History Buff

          My 9 year old son has been playing this game nonstop. We love that there are different ways to play. I need to study more because he crushes me every time! He is an expert on presidential trivia, but is just beginning to learn other history, so it is cool that this game has it all.

          History plunge

          Great game for the entire family. We play with our kids and grandchildren. One of my daughters is a high school history teacher—she was impressed.

          Awesome education tool!

          This is so much more than a game! You can grab these cards and just learn some new trivia!
