Combine your memory to draw a map of the USA. You'll argue about which states go where, which borders terminate where, which state lines are shared, and then one of you will say, "Oh my goodness, we forgot IOWA!" :)

My wife is Czech, so it will be more than an hour and anything but pleasant! grin

You could make it worse, or more fun, depending: Ask her where the State of IKEA goes….

My wife has found an online test that gives you blank maps of continents. You try and guess which countries go where. She's getting good at it.

I can't figure out the new countries since the collapse of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia.

Sounds like fun.

Add in a bit more complexity too, by having to state where the dividing lines are, between Northern and Southern California, and Northern Virginia and the rest of the state.

My wife doesn't really do visual images (written and spoken word is more her thing), so it wouldn't be hugely enjoyable although all the place names would be spelt correctly;)

My wife can do some of the provinces of Thailand, as well as pick out Texas on a map. That's about it. Maybe Florida too, as we go visit my Dad now and then.
