You’ve loaded up the snacks, planned your stops, and buckled your seatbelt. Now what? With hours and hours of drive time ahead, it’s time to add some fun to your vehicle vacay. So put down the phone and get ready for some laughs because it’s game time! And we promise, there’s no “I spy” on this list.

1. The singing game

The first person starts by singing a song lyric of their choice and whatever word they stop on, the next person has to connect a different song lyric to it.

Singer 1: Then I saw her face now I’m…
Singer 2: a genie in a bottle….
Singer 3: It’s one of those things that gets sweeter with time

And don’t worry if you don’t have pipes like Christina, this one’s just about having a good time.

2. Battle of the bands

Get your iPod ready, you have 60 seconds to pick a better song than your opponent based on a given category. Once songs are played, the car judges the winner.

Category: Songs with the word “Love” in the title.
Your pick: “What is Love?” by Haddaway
Your buddy’s pick: Ellie Goulding’s, “Love Me Like You Do.”

Verdict: You’re the clear winner here.

3. Word association

If you’re a word wizard, this game is for you. As you may have guessed from the title, it’s all about word association. You think of a word and the next person has to think of a word or person that’s associated with it.

Cousin Eddy

4. Who are they?

Player 1 thinks of a person, famous or personal. The otherplayer gets 10 seconds to help them figure out who the person is.

Is it a male? Yes
Is he a celebrity? Yes
Is he an athlete? No
Has he been in a movie recently? Yes
Is he a household name? Yes
Is he known for a specific show or movie? Yes
Has he won any awards? Yes
Is he single? No
Does he have kids? Yes
Are his kids famous? Yes
Is he Will Smith? Yes!

5. Bad movie plot

The first person thinks of a well-known movie and describes it in as much detail as possible. The catch? The movie you choose has to be one you haven’t seen. After you’ve described your movie, the other passengers will try to guess what movie it is.

Famous movie you haven’t seen: Rocky

So there’s this fighter guy that sweats a lot and always seems to be wearing either a leather jacket or sweatpants. He runs up and downstairs a few times and then wins some big fight. I assume there’s a girl involved at some point. Oh, and can’t forget about his epic theme song!
