Swamp Gas Visits the USA is an educational game that helps make geography more fun. There are three levels of map difficulty and players can easily determine the length of their geography discovery missions.
They can decide if they will be visiting states, capitals, cities or landmarks, some of them or all of them. Players also have the option of 'close encounters' with the earthlings. Upon the completion of a geography mission the players can goof off in the Alien Arcade, enjoying one of the three and non-violent alien style arcade games.
Early one October morning in 1951 John Hickmeister was hunting ducks with his dog Duke when he noticed an odd oval light on the misty horizon. The silvery disk rose out of the marshes and shot up into the darkness of the receding night. As the bright saucer-shaped object passed overhead, John could make out a purple creature inside who seemed to be driving and reading a road map of the United States.
John reported the incident to a friend at the local newspaper, and by noon of the next day, John was the laughing stock of Wisconsin. It must have been a slow news day nationally because John's story made the radio news and soon he became the United States fool of the moment. Fortunately for John, he was replaced as the laughing stock of the nation two days later, when a woman in Massachusetts claimed to have spotted a UFO near her home in the Berkshire mountains.
On the other hand, few people heard about the pair of policemen who, a month or so later, sighted a formation of saucers traveling far (and fast) above the Las Vegas desert. Eventually, in a top secret investigation, the United States Air Force looked into the UFO phenomena. Many months (and many taxpayer dollars) later, the project, code named Blue Book, concluded that the unidentified flying objects were plastic dinnerware, strange cloud formations, exotic birds, weather balloons, or... Swamp Gas!
