Seterra has more than 100 different geography games and exercises at http://www.seterra.net/. This is a free site that you can access online or download to your computer. It drills on states, countries, and capitals, but also covers provinces and territories within countries, oceans, lakes, rivers, flags, mountains, and important cities. It's a very simply designed program--click to assign a label to the correct location. Labels sometimes overlap each other, making it difficult to use, but it's still very good for a free resource.
