It happens during long road trips that we get bored very easily. There should be something that will help us keep entertained. Reading a book or watching any movie is of no use. In case you need some real fun, then playing games in the car can be just the right thing! Here is a list of games that can be played while traveling long or short distances.
The Yellow Car Game: - You would find this game very interesting as it’s easy to learn and the rules are quite simple to understand. Your ultimate goal will be to spot the most number of yellow cars crossing your car on the highway. It’s true that yellow cars are hard to find on the road but they are not even rare in number. You can play this game with your kids while dropping them to their school. However if you play this game on the highway or on a long distance journey then you might get bored as it will take time to tally the score of yellow car each person has counted. Rules are quite easy: Person will score 1 point when he/she see a yellow hummer, Volkswagen, 2 points for yellow corvette, 3 points for yellow boat and 10 points for yellow Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche as its hard to find such cars in yellow color.
License Plate Game: Yes, this game can be played on the highway while going for a long drive. To play this game, you should keep the track of total number of out-of-state number plate you have seen. For every such plate, you will score 1 point. For example: If you are in Karnataka and you see an Andhra Pradesh number plate, you will get a point. You can check the number plate for semi-trucks and transports vehicles as they usually travels across different states and you might score pretty well in that case.
The ABC Game: This is the game that needs to be played in complete coordination. In this game, no one wins but to reach the goal, everyone should play as a team. Your ultimate goal will be to find BILLBOARDS ONLY words that start with an alphabet on which you are currently. For example, if you are on ‘E’ alphabet and you see an ‘Elephant’ word, you have to call everyone and show the place where you have seen the word. In this way, you have to complete all the 26 alphabets before you reach your destination.
The Artist Game: To play this game, you require a radio. Now tune-in to the radio channel that your whole family who are travelling knows very well. Music could be Oldies, Rock, Rap, Classical, Hindi or Christian. Now for every song that is currently played on the radio channel, the person has to tell the name of the artist who has sung the song. Every correct answer will add 1 point in your favor. At the end, count the points of every single person individually and the person with most points wins.
I hope that you have enjoyed playing these games during your journey. So buckle up your seat belt and have fun while playing these games.
