Abstract

Geography is not only a knowledge inside the University background and the educational syllabus. Since 1976 Yves Lacoste told us how Geography is always a structure of the power, even though with recreational purpose, and in the Nineties critical geopolitics in particular tried to deconstruct the taken-for-granted of the geographical common sense-building. If travel literature, tourist publicity material, cinema and comics are all different kind of popular geopolitics, board and computer games are also a significant way to construct the geographical knowledge, specially as educational support for the schoolchildren. Therefore we propose to define all this kind of games as geo-fun, ad particularly we will try to analyze board and computer games as text, that are such medium for transporting specific message about the geopolitical discourse.
