I’m a huge fan of road trips. But lets face it, spending countless hours stuck in a car can get a little boring. So, we’re going to be looking at how you guys can keep yourselves entertained on the long car journeys you will inevitably experience if you embark on one of these road trips. If you guys know any other cool road trip games, go ahead and leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
1. 3 Word Story
This game is very simple.
You go around everyone in the car with each person saying three words that link to create a story with the words said previously.
It may sound like not much fun, but if you’re playing with some interesting and creative people, this can become very entertaining!
2. Guess the Song
This one starts off by someone humming a song and everyone else has to guess what it is. If you guess the song correctly, you get a point and the player with the most points at the end wins.
3. The Name Game
For the name game, you can only use the names of famous people.
It starts off where one person says a name. The next person then needs to say the name of another famous person with their first name starting with the same letter as the first letter of the previous person’s last name. Quite confusing, I know! So, for example, LeBron James – Jamie Foxx.
4. Mrs. Brown
Someone starts off by saying, “Mrs. Brown went to town and she bought…” and then state what she bought.
This process continues, going around everyone in the car, but as well as you thinking of something new for Mrs. Brown to buy, you also have to remember everything else she’s bought throughout the game, and list them first.
If you mess up, you’re out.
5. The Alphabet Game
First pick a category. It can be anything. Sports. Famous people. Countries. Whatever.
You then go through each letter of the alphabet and everyone must list something related to the chosen topic that begins with that letter. Obviously there will be a few letters that just don’t have enough topic related things (like “X” for countries), but you can adjust the game as you see fit.
A little bit of advice… If the topic is animals, use pterodactyl for “p” and you’ll blow everyone’s minds!
6. Movie Connections
One person lists a movie. the next person then has to list another movie that’s linked to the first one in some way. Whether it’s a sequel or the same actor’s in it or anything like that.
You can’t list the same movie twice.
Someone puts their music on. Everyone else has to guess the name of the song. The person who guesses correctly then gets to put their own music on, and so the game continues.
8. Would You Rather
Someone proposes two hypothetical scenarios and everyone else has to pick which one they would choose or experience.
Simple, but entertaining!
