Travel Games

Travel games are the perfect way to help pass the time on those long RV road trips.  You can adapt the games to accommodate your passengers.  Have Fun!

Rock, Paper, Scissors

To play, each player makes a fist and says out loud, “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” swinging down their fist on each beat. After the third beat, each player makes one of three hand gestures: a closed fist representing “rock,” an open hand representing “paper” or a V representing “scissors.”  The winning player makes the gestures of the object that will defeat the opponent’s object. In other words, since a rock can destroy a pair of scissors, rock beats scissors. Scissors cut paper, so scissors beat paper. Since paper can cover a rock, paper beats rock. If opponents use the same gesture, the game is tied.

I Spy

One person in the car will choose an everyone can see. They then give the other people in the car a clue by saying: “I spy with my little eye, something….” they then will state the object’s color, give the first letter of the name of the object or offer another clue. The person who guesses the object correctly is the next person to spy a new item.

The Banana Game

The first person who spots a passing yellow vehicle gets points. Each person is awarded a point for being the first person to see the vehicle.


Every time someone spots a VW Bug, have them tap the person next to them and announce to the car that they’ve spotted the vehicle.

Twenty Questions

The only clue players start out with is whether you are thinking of something “animal, vegetable or mineral” or a “person, place or thing.” The players must ask questions that you can only answer “yes” or “no” to determine who or what you are thinking about. The goal is to guess the answer in 20 questions or less.

What Did I Bring on My Trip?

Start this game by saying “I’m going on a trip and I’m bringing…”  The first player names an item that starts with the letter “A”.  The next player will say the same thing but with the letter “B”, and so on.
