Fun & Free Travel Game Ideas

27 October 2021

When it comes to traveling, we also need some rest and something to keep us entertained now and then. And, believe it or not, we grow bored in many situations, especially in travel delays. Not to worry, there are many engaging travel games for everyone on road trips, airlines, and during downtime in hotel rooms. Here are fun free travel game ideas for your next trip.

1. Two Truths & A Lie

This is one of my favorite conversation starter games! To play Two Truths and a Lie, one person reveals three facts about themselves, two of which are true and one of which is false. Everyone has to figure out which of the statements is false. You gain a point if you correctly guess the falsehood. At the end of the game, the player with the most points wins.

For instance, mine might be 1. I've been scuba diving and almost drowned. 2. I have visited Thailand and got scammed. 3. I have cliff jumped in La Union and got my shoulder dislocated. Which one is my lie?

2. Hot Seat

Hot seat is a game in which one person in a group is asked rapid-fire questions for a set amount of time.

To begin, select one individual to sit in the hot seat. Then decide how long someone will be in the hot seat. One, two, or three minutes will suffice. Then, for that period of time, set a timer. When the countdown goes off, everyone starts asking questions to the individual in the hot seat until the timer goes off. You are free to ask whatever questions come to mind. When the first person's turn is up, you choose the next person in the hot seat, set the timer, and everyone asks the next person questions until the timer goes off.

This process is then repeated until everyone in your group has had a time in the hot seat.

For the next round, increase the amount of time each person spends on the hot seat to five, ten, or even fifteen minutes. Storytelling is more enjoyable when the time is longer.

3. 20 Questions

It's a lot of fun to play 20 Questions! One player chooses a person, location, or thing to keep a secret. Then everyone takes turns asking yes or no questions to see if they can figure out what they're thinking about. In 20 questions, you must figure out what it is.

4. The Movie Game

Here's another entertaining game to pass the time on a lengthy car ride. Suggest a letter from someone in the family. If they start with C, for example, everyone else in the car will have to think of movies that begin with C, such as Cinderella and so on.

After you've completed that category, you can move on to the next letter in the alphabet.

5. Rapid Fire Word Association

This one is simple to advance through, humorous, and competitive! Someone says a term, then the next person says a word related to it, and so on until someone is stumped or takes too long to come up with a word. The player who finished the round is eliminated, and everyone else plays until a winner is determined.

I recently played this with my family on a road trip, and it was a blast! It's fascinating to observe where people's imaginations travel when they associate words! Example: Candy, Sweet, Apple, Red, Fire, BBQ, Camping, Tent, Forest, Mountain, Cold, Blanket, and so on...

BONUS: Fun brain games for solo travelers

If you travel solo, alone in the rode, or are just really bored and looking for a way to pass the time. Here are some fun brain games for the brain that you can actually play online:

1. The Classic Solitaire

Your cards are dealt to the tableau automatically in this Classic Solitaire game. The object of the game is to create sequences of cards. The suits and rank are used to create these sequences. The cards should be piled in the following order: K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, A, with no mixed suits.

Sounds easy yet so addicting for hours.

2. Golf Solitaire

There are seven rows of cards in Golf Solitaire. Thirty-five cards are arranged face-up in five columns. The rest of the cards are piled into a deck. A Talon is created by placing the top card of the deck face-up in a new pile. The goal of the game is to collect all of the cards and put them in the Talon pile.

A card can be moved to the Talon if it is one number higher or lower than the card already on the Talon pile. If a card is covered by another card, you can't move it. If you are unable to move a card, you may choose another card from the deck and place it on the Talon pile.

When all of the cards are moved to the Talon pile, the game is over. The game is lost if the player becomes trapped and is unable to make another move.

3. Hidden Object Games

If card games aren't your cup of tea or if you're looking for a more chill game that could get your brain working for hours, try some hidden object games.
