Facing a long, potentially boring road trip with some family or friends? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back with some hilarious games that will make the journey much more enjoyable. Here’s a list of ten road trip games that will help you laugh the miles away and maybe even forget you’re stuck in a car for hours.
1. Would You Rather
This game is perfect for getting to know your road trip companions better. One person asks a “would you rather” question, and everyone else has to choose between two options. For example, “Would you rather have to wear a tutu for the entire road trip or have to eat nothing but peanut butter for every meal?”
2. Name That Tune
Put on some music and challenge each other to name the song and artist as quickly as possible. You can also make it more challenging by limiting the playlist to a specific genre or time period.
3. 20 Questions
One person thinks of a person, place, or thing, and everyone else has 20 yes-or-no questions to figure out what it is. This game can get pretty silly, so don’t be afraid to come up with ridiculous answers.
4. The License Plate Game
This game requires a bit of creativity. Each person chooses a license plate and creates a backstory for the driver based on the letters and numbers on the plate. For example, “KLM 123” might stand for “Karen’s Llama Mobile with 123 llamas in the back.”
Choose a category, like “types of fruit” or “movies starring Tom Hanks,” and take turns naming items in that category. If someone can’t come up with an answer, they’re out.
6. The Alphabet Game
A classic road trip game that never gets old. Starting with the letter “A,” each person has to find a word that begins with that letter on road signs, billboards, or license plates. Once someone finds a word, they move on to the next letter of the alphabet. The first person to get to “Z” wins.
7. The Rhyme Game
One person says a word, and everyone else has to come up with a word that rhymes with it. This is another game can get pretty silly, so be prepared for some ridiculous rhymes!
8. The Celebrity Name Game
One person says the name of a celebrity, and everyone else has to come up with a celebrity name that starts with the last letter of the previous celebrity’s name. For example, if someone says “Tom Hanks,” the next person might say “Sandra Bullock.”
9. The Storytelling Game
One person starts telling a story, and everyone else takes turns adding to it. The goal is to make the story as ridiculous and entertaining as possible.
10. The Animal Game
One person says the name of an animal, and the next person has to say the name of an animal that starts with the last letter of the previous animal’s name. For example, if someone says “giraffe,” the next person might say “elephant.”
