Jos Fun Play was founded in Brampton, Ontario, Canada by a Nigerian-Canadian, born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, who considers herself a nomad and global citizen.

Jos Fun Play's mission is to educate through play.

GeoWhizFun was created as a fun way to test your knowledge or explore countries, territories, and people that make up our wonderful planet. All these places are unique, special, and beautiful in their own way.

We aim to bring collective strength to cultural diversity and geographical unity that everyone can benefit from. Our geography card game is more than memorising countries on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating cultural diversity, bringing people together, and broadening their horizons.

“When you hold a pencil, you hold the world in your hands. Its raw ingredients make a far-reaching journey around the globe, from Sweden to South Africa, Estonia, Brazil and beyond. To understand the creation of the pencil is to understand countries and commerce, global trade and transport networks, markets and manufacturing, production and politics, exports and economies.” Excerpts from article by Vicki Phillips - Why Geography Should Be Part Of Every 21st Century Education

The statistics on basic geographic knowledge are alarming and frightening!

Stats – 3,000+ individuals aged 18 – 24 years old in Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Sweden and the United States participated in a survey conducted by National Geographic. Sweden scored highest; Mexico, lowest. The U.S. was next to last.

  • About 11 percent of young citizens of the U.S. couldn't locate the U.S. on a map. The Pacific Ocean's location was a mystery to 29 percent; Japan to 58 percent; France to 65 percent; and the United Kingdom 69 percent.
  • More than 70 percent of the young adults from the countries that did better in the survey had travelled internationally in the last three years, and the majority spoke more than one language (in Sweden, 92 and 89 percent, respectively). On the other side, in the U.S. and Mexico, only about 20 percent had travelled abroad during the same period, and the majority spoke only one language.

GeoWhizFun gives you a world that you can carry in your pocket!

We understand that not everyone has the luxury of traveling to explore all the fascinating corners of our planet, Earth. Therefore, our ultimate aim is to bring these countries and territories right to your doorstep without you leaving the comfort of your own home.

As global citizens, we are more connected than ever before. Therefore, we need to be geographically aware of our global interdependence and the complexities and implications of our interconnectedness.

“For peace to reign on earth, humans must evolve into new beings who have learned to see the whole first.” Immanuel Kant

By opening our minds to learn about our similarities and differences, our places and spaces, we foster cultural awareness, sensitivity, and acceptance of others. We are also consciously taking a step towards more empathy, tolerance, compassion, understanding, respect, less ignorance, and less judgment of our fellow citizens from other countries and cultural backgrounds.

Whatever your passion for the world – geographical literacy will reward you with knowledge and transferable skills that will advance you personally and professionally for life. Whether you want to fight the geography gap, explore the world, or get ready for a global future, GeoWhizFun is the best geography game for you!
