@boomeranghotels What is the best road trip game?
@TheAlexLop: The Name Game: Watch: CairO. OkinawA. ArkansaS. St. SebastiaN @theglamtraveler: Would you rather! Makes for some interesting convos @dealchecker: 20 questions without Google because that’s just cheating @lucy_c_b: ‘What am I thinking?’ passes the time @TeachReviews: I Spy! Many good things to spy while on a road trip
@OTPTravel: Name that tune is our favorite. Music is essential for a good road trip @nsouthwick: Punchbuggy, clearly. particularly if one is visiting England
@katyabroad: Horse. You shout horse if you see a horse. Minus points if you shout it and it’s cow/sheep/postbox
@hobonora Do you have a game you can play with anybody on the road, regardless of language or culture?
@loco2: We learned to make origami frogs from train tickets, you can bounce them into a glass. Timeless, language agnostic and for all ages @hilaryetravels: Twister- it’s a classic and no language needed @Inga_Ros: Backgammon. Very universal and you don’t need to speak @checkinlondon: UNO – Colored playing cards with numbers…everybody knows numbers and colors regardless of their culture and language @latinAbroad: Singing along to old Spice Girls or Backstreet Boys songs. Everybody knows. Even the haters @UnnaWildt: Thumb war and rock/paper/scissor/lizard/Spock
@travel_rich: Card games. A pack of cards can break any language barrier. And ice
@TravelDesigned What are the best game apps?
@VolunteeReviews: Fruit Ninja! Love slicing those fruits and see them splatter on the wall
@adlibtraveller: Maybe Tetris or good old Angry Birds @Curiosity_Trvls: I’m a big fan of Words with Friends. Scrabble can get really competitive, and pass a lot of time
@katyabroad: Draw Something @analtable: Tap The Frog is addictive @OTPTravel: You can get Final Fantasy games now as apps. This is heaven for all gamers
@PLUSjordi: Snake. The greatest phone game of all time
@SustainableTrip: I’m addicted to Temple Run at the moment @melbtravel: World Flags and Country quiz games, you learn about another country while being inspired
@ae_carhire What’s the best beach game to play?
@BespokeTravels: Beach volleyball @ccphototours: Diving through, under and over the waves! Can’t beat it
@SaraKateTravel: Shell Hunt! That’s my favorite game @findmypassport: Frisbee is always another firm favorite
@holidayinsider: Bury your brother in the sand
@TipsyTraveler: Dizzy bats, including but not limited to drinking beer from a hollow wiffle ball bat @ArchofAdventure: Building sandcastles, duh
@TreasureLondon Favorite games to play all by yourself when traveling solo?
@LAbackpackrChik: I have two Sudoku books with me for long bus rides when electronics just don’t cut it! Endless hours of entertainment @FloraBaker: Guess what arguments are about when you don’t speak their language
@katyabroad: People watching (and secretly, people judging) @travels4couples: Solitaire @eurapart: Take photos of other travelers taking silly travel photos @findmypassport: Game wise though the Rubix Cube wins hands down @brandyleebell: Making up absurd/fictional stories about people I watch
