Around the World is a fun multiplication game based on the timeless classic classroom game where students go "Around the World" if they can defeat their classmates in a game of multiplication flash cards. In the online versions, students face fictional students from other countries, thereby integrating the game well with geography. Students win if they can defeat all 20 students. The problem is, “students” from different countries answer the flash cards at different speeds. Some may take ten seconds, while others may take only 4 or 5 seconds. In this way, the game simulates the real game where some kids are quicker with their facts than others.
