Have you ever been bored on the long road with nothing to do? Why not play these cool road games to make the time fly by. These games are guaranteed to fill the car with laughter, make you guess many colours and animals, and help you polish your memory skills. Let’s have some fun!

The Animal Name Game

How it works

One person names an animal. Then the next person has to name another animal, starting with the last letter of the previously named animal. For example, the first person says “parrot” and the next person says “‘tiger”. You can also try if with the names of cities and countries, celebrities, or anything else.

Broken Telephone Game

How it works

The ‘caller’ whispers a phrase to someone else in the car. That person whispers the same phrase to a third person, and so on. The last person to hear the phrase must repeat it out loud to everyone. Parts of the phrase will be lost, and the resulting garbled message usually inspires a good laugh.

Categories Game

How it works

This game is a classic! Work through the alphabet and name things according to specific categories such as a country, a capital city, a river and a car manufacturer. For example, for the letter ‘B’ you could name Botswana, Berlin, Berg Elver and BMW. Once you’ve ticked all your categories, move on to the next letter.

I Spy Game

How it works

This game has been around for donkey’s years and is still popular. One person describes something that they see with its first letter, so that it can be found more easily. For example, you can say, “I spy with my little eye something that begins with the letter ‘G'”. Some may guess ‘garage’ or ‘grass’. The person who gets it right will then describe what they see. You can also use colour to describe what you see.

Memory Test Game

How it works

In this game, you must concentrate and listen carefully. The person will begin with the letter ‘A’ and spell out any word that starts with the letter. For example, ‘A’ is for apple. The next person must come up with any word that starts with the letter ‘B’, such as ‘boots’. The second person must repeat ‘A’ is for apple” before saying ‘B’ is for boots. The same applies to the next person until the letter ‘Z’. The person who fails to mention a letter and word is out. Tip: Use simple words. They are easier to remember.
