Best Road Trip Games Adults Won’t Hate

Family Road Trip

Every road trip movie has a scene with some gruelingly boring road trip game that everyone in the car clearly hates having to play—but road trip games don’t have to be terrible. If you’re on the road with your kids or just a group of adult friends, here are the best road trip games adults might just have fun with.

Musical Games

Bring some fun to your long drive with pop culture-themed games, like Battle of the Bands, where one person picks a song category and two other players each play a song. The first player decides which one wins! There’s also the Singing Game, where you go around singing a song lyric each and the next player has to sing a line from a different song with related lyrics.

Games that Make You Think

Most road trip games are pretty mindless, but games that let you focus your attention on thinking hard will make time fly by. One example is the Name Game, where you name a celebrity and the next player has to name another celebrity whose name starts with the last letter of the last celebrity’s name. It doesn’t have to be a famous person—pick any category that interests you!

Word Games

Word Association and Alphabet Categories are two more games for a carful of wordsmiths. In Word Association, one person says a word and the next person says the first word that comes to mind and so on. In Alphabet Categories, you pick a category like food or instruments and name something from that category for each letter of the alphabet.

Seriously, Don’t Do the Bird Box Challenge While Driving

Bird box

Bird Box, the wildly popular new Netflix film adaptation of the Josh Malerman novel by the same name, has earned a place in internet history by achieving the peak of pop culture prestige: it inspired a meme.

The film’s main characters live in a world filled with monsters the sight of which makes humans kill themselves, so they protect themselves by wearing blindfolds when they go out. Naturally, the film’s fans—and then the entire internet—challenged themselves to go about their day in blindfolds.

The Bird Box Challenge, like the cinnamon challenge and the Tide Pod challenge before it, is sweeping the nation—often at the expense of public safety. A 17-year-old girl in Layton, Utah, for instance, took on the challenge while driving, pulling her hat down over her eyes and inevitably crashing into another car.

It should go without saying that you should never drive without being able to see. Both the Bird Boxer and the driver she hit came out of the accident unscathed, but it could have been much more serious. Don’t do the Bird Box Challenge while Driving—in fact, if you’re going to blindfold yourself, stay home. The general public will be safer for it.

If someone else driving like an idiot hits your car, come see us at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi to see what we have to replace it.
