Vintage (1991) Geografacts educational world geography board game. Complete (but no instructions).


Vintage (1991) Geografacts educational world geography board game.

THIS GAME HAS BEEN INVENTORIED AND IS COMPLETE but there are NO instructions inside the box. The instructions for the game are available elsewhere online for a small fee.

Game overview: Played individually or in teams, players each draw a card that represents either a country or a U.S. State and answer standard questions in order to move. Each country is assigned a number, and the answering player/team gets to look at one of several maps for aid in answering the 5 questions. The marker moves forward 3 points for the first 2 questions answered correctly (usually Continent and Country name) and 1 point for the last three questions (usually capitol, official language, and currency). The team/player that has the marker reach the end first is the winner. Updates for border changes used to be available by (snail) mailing the company but the boutique game house Geografacts is no longer in operation. Game was commonly used by schools in their geography classrooms in the early to mid 1990s.

Game made and published in the USA. Game rated for ages 7 years to adult.

Taxes on purchases: Etsy collects all taxes. For orders shipping outside of Canada, Etsy collects tax at the rate set by the individual State or Country. On domestic (Canadian) orders tax is applied to the order on check-out as indicated by the Canadian Government's tax table. Tax IS applied to all shipping costs on Canadian orders.

Does Buy from Groovy offer a layaway option for items that I want?

Currently, Buy from Groovy does NOT offer a layaway plan. However, where an interested Purchaser contacts us to request a HOLD or RESERVE on an item(s), we are most times happy to do so FOR UP TO 48 HOURS. If you require an item or items to be held longer than 48 hours, please message us to request these arrangements.

What if I want to return an item I purchased from or cancel on order I placed with Buy from Groovy?

We do NOT accept cancellations of orders and we do NOT offer exchanges. We do NOT accept returns of merchandise unless a Purchaser receives an item(s) in a defective state and such defects vary from, or were not stated in the original listing, or if a Purchaser receives an item(s) totally different from that purchased on the site. In all cases, we ask and expect customers to bring the issue to our attention within 5 days of the item being delivered.

Vintage Board Game, Jigsaw Puzzle and VHS tape Policy.

IN ALL CASES, vintage board games, jigsaw puzzles and VHS tapes are sold AS IS and FINAL SALE. We do our utmost to identify any shortcomings or flaws, as such exist. With games and puzzles, the pieces are inventoried and the status of this inventory is typically stated - IN CAPS - at the top of the product listing.

Board games and puzzles tend to show their age with time. Many times, people may wish to return them simply because, once received, they decide they are not "as new", may even smell of smoke (if the previous owner smoked!) and thus, are not acceptable to them. It should be understood being "as new" would rarely be the case for vintage games and puzzles and we cannot guarantee the prior owner was a non-smoker!

How does Buy from Groovy evaluate or quantify the stated condition of china, ironstone and other ceramic wares?

MINT: NO! chips, nicks, cracks, crazing, fading, marks, stains, or scratches. Usually refers to an UNUSED item such as old store stock.
EXCELLENT: may show MILD! crazing, a fleabite, MINIMAL! fading, or edge wear. Defects will be stated in listing
VERY GOOD: item has NO! cracks, but may have nicks, MINIMAL crazing and or edge loss (where applicable) or fading. Defects will be stated in the listing.
GOOD! or FAIR: may present with ANY OR ALL OF the above issues. Defects will be stated in the listing. Best for use as an extra piece for your service, or as a decorative display item only.
SMELL OF SMOKE: We CANNOT guarantee the prior owner was a non-smoker. Items MAY HAVE A SMELL OF SMOKE.

What is the shipping time frame? What is the estimated delivery time frame?

Most items ship out within three (3) to five (5) BUSINESS days. Where there is a variance to this, such as the order of a large dinner service, or an order requiring a lot of time to package, we will provide an updated shipping time frame, where necessary.

Delivery to the USA is typically 7-10 BUSINESS days FOLLOWING the date of shipment. Canadian delivery is typically 3-5 BUSINESS days FOLLOWING shipment date, with the exception of addresses located in more remote areas of Canada such as Northern BC, the Yukon etc. In these remote areas, delivery times can be in the range of 7-10 BUSINESS days.

Sizing and quantity details.

All sizes are given in feet and inches, unless otherwise indicated and are approximations.

All items are listed individually and the price shown would be for a quantity of ONE (1), unless otherwise stated (i.e., SET of xx, PAIR of xx). Sometimes, BONUS! items are provided and where a BONUS! item is included, it will be referenced in the listing. Photos may show more than one (1) of the same item if more than one (1) is available. This is done to assist buyers, allowing them to see each of the available items to assess their quality and/or appearance given that they may receive any number of the shown items, depending upon the quantity ordered. We provide as many photos, normally, as space permits.

Plate diameters.

Some companies | people list the diameter of a plate or saucer with the INTERNAL FLAT MEASUREMENT, others with the EDGE-TO-EDGE measurements of the plate or saucer. We typically measure from edge to edge and will then indicate if the piece has a coupe shape. This can lead some to believe the diameter of the stated plate or saucer is different than that which they are trying to match. Usually, this perceived disparity in the stated dimension is the result of this edge-to-edge versus internal flat measurement of the piece. If in doubt, DO! feel free to drop us a conversation and we will be pleased to verify the actual dimensions of the item for you against that which you are trying to match.

Do you have a storefront we can visit? Do you offer local pick-up?

All BuyfromGroovy sales are conducted online. Local pick-ups are welcome and are always FREE! of charge and in fact, we will provide a 20% refund on the total price once the item(s) are successfully picked up. This refund will be 20% of the total price paid (excluding any taxes).

For local pick-up, we ask Purchasers to complete purchases online, through Etsy, and then drop us a message, providing 48 hours notice of intended pick-up date and time. This way, we ensure your item(s) are ready for you to collect upon arrival. ALL purchase transactions are conducted through Etsy check-out meaning there are NO! COD transactions available. This provides the Purchaser with Etsy Buyer Protection as the sale is conducted through Etsy.
