It’s been a great summer so far and with autumn around the corner, you might want to take advantage of the last of the pleasant weather conditions with a good old road trip. Once you’ve got your snacks, gadgets, and luggage all packed up, there’s probably one more thing to consider. Having a good plan for on-the-road entertainment helps to smooth out your journey by keeping everyone occupied and amused.

Let’s take a look at a few of the best options for groups and individuals to pass the time as the world outside whizzes by.

I Spy

Perhaps the most iconic road trip diversion is also the simplest to play and ideal for a trip with kids on board. in ‘I spy’ the first person chooses something on the road or in the car but does not say what it is and says “I spy with my little eye something that begins with the letter …” saying the first letter of the name of the object they have spotted. The other participants then have to guess what it is. It sounds like a bit of a basic game, but it’s great fun and inventive players can create challenging clues.

Mobile Multiplayer Games

Our smart handsets and tablets are a gateway to an infinite world of entertainment for solo players and groups alike.

Heads Up is a classic mobile group game where you start the app and place it on your forehead with the screen facing out. The name of a famous person, place, or thing will be shown, and everyone else has to give you clues for you to guess what it says, but they can’t say the actual name. Get ready for chuckles as crazy clues and wild guesses fly around.

Out of the Loop is another one-device game where everyone is given questions to ask specific players about a secret, but one player has secretly been left out of the loop and does not know the answer. This player needs to be clever about the answers and not give away that they are the odd one out.

There is also a myriad of options like single-player puzzle games, MMORPGs where you can play with thousands of others from all over the globe and complex brain-teasers. Explore your app store and you’ll find almost infinite choices. Remember to plan for whether you will have a constant and stable mobile network connection to avoid frustration.

Card Classics

A simple deck of 52 cared is the doorway to a rich selection of games of chance and amusement from the deepest recesses of history. Whether you like single-player brain teasers or competitive casino-style games, a shuffle of the deck is all you need to get going.

Truth or Car-Dare

Things can get a little heated when people are put on the spot, and truth or dare has always been the perfect game to get that right. This version is exactly like the classic, except all dares would have to take place within the vehicle, with obvious considerations for everyone else’s safety. As the questions get more piercing, you might find yourself tempted to perform whatever horrifying task your fellow occupants come up with. It might come down to you confessing your secret crush or sniffing someone’s smelly sock, so be ready for anything.


This requires some preparation and consulting with everyone else who will be in the car but lining up a selection of sing-along anthems is well worth the effort. You could have an Idols-style singing competition and even hand out your own version of the wooden mic to the most questionable performance.
