I know I have heard of games that can be played between cars but I cant find anything on it online. Does anyone know about games that can be played between cars? There are 8 of us going so we have to take to separate cars on our trip to California.
Yeah like that, that is an obvious one that I hadn't though of! I also remember a game my friend had that was in a little book and you held up signs to the other car. I can't remember much about it, does that ring a bell to anyone?
Why don't you check into a set of those "walkie-talkies" that motorcyclists use. I'm not sure what the range is but the better ones I believe will go 1/2 mile or so.
will have a better range than the walkie-talkies.
Maybe I am just too much of a "fuddy duddy", but...
I dunno, the prospect of anyone "playing games" between two cars hurtling down the road at 75+ mph kind of gives me the willies. I hope the drivers of each vehicle are immune to the games.
That being said, one of the better intellect games is <a href = "http://www.mwm.org/carnelli.html">Carnelli<a/> and with the use of a radio it could be conducted between two vehicles. It is actually better with more people.
A pretty good list
I found a pretty good list of car games (on a competitor's site -- horrors...) <a href = "http://www.roadtripplanning.com/road-trip-games.html">Here is the link<a/>.
Chicken is waste of time, perhaps the old game involving a tow strap, 2 cars pointing in the opposite direction, and the warranty for those tires. :-)
CB Radios isn't all that its cracked up to be
Beware-- Atleast in Phoenix, channel 19 (highway channel) is occupied by the rudest of the rude, I got cussed at for asking how traffic was on the SR 51 (the first reply was "What do you think, idiot, its moving!"
Just make sure you all decide on a channel other than 19.. try 23, thats a good one (just stay off 9).
We used to play the alphabet game (ok who knows the real title) Each player goes through the alphabet, by finding words on STATIONARY objects (no cars or license plates) with your next letter in it, first one to finish Z wins.
You say the letter and word you see to get a letter
The hardest are always Z, J and Q. though here in the south Q can be found on most BBQ signs, and pizza is a popolar Z one.
If you want to make it harder you can say only the first letter of the word can be used. (in this case you might agreed to skip the really hard letters since not much starts with a Z or Q. )
For games between cars get some short range walkie talkies and play I spy games or charades or other verbal games.
