Traveling is the trendiest thing to do nowadays. Regardless if they are short or long, each trip is surely enjoyable. However, there are times when trips, especially road trips, may feel so long and boring. To keep them from being so, there are games that you can play to make the trip more fun and exciting. After all, playing games during trips help create more fond memories. If board games are not your cup of tea, playing casino with high limits online might tickle your fancy.
If you are good with word games, then this is the game for you. Very much like Scrabble, but without the board, players get letter tiles that they use to form words with. Their words must be linked, just like in Scrabble, until they use up all their letters. There are no turns; everyone just needs to work on his own grid to use up all his letters. The game ends when there are fewer letters in the pile than players. The winner is the first one to use up all his letters and the first one to shout “Bananagrams.” American Abraham Nathanson came up with this game with his family. “Bananagrams” is derived from the word “anagram”.
Susan McKinley Ross made the game published by Mindware in 2006. Qwirkle looks deceptively simple, with tiles printed with 6 different shapes and 6 different colors. But don’t be deceived; this game was given the Spiel des Jahres award, a prestigious award for game play and design. Qwirkle is like Scrabble and dominoes combined. During a turn, a player can place all alike tiles in one straight line. The key is they have to match in color or in shape. The game ends when there are no more tiles to play. The winner is the player who uses up all his tiles first. What makes it fun is the strategy you employ in laying down your tiles and scoring as many points as you can.
This classic card game goes by many names, like Cheat, Bullshit, BS, I Doubt it, even Bologna. Bluff is best played by 2 to 6 players. The entire deck of cards is equally distributed among the players. The first player lays down a card face down and says the rank of the card he lays down. The next player has to lay down a card of the same rank (or higher or lower) as the previous card. If any player thinks a player is lying about the card he laid down, he calls out “Bluff” (or Bullshit, I doubt it, etc.). If it is a lie, the liar gets all the cards in the deck. But if not, the one that called the bluff has to get the deck. The winner is the one who is able to get rid of all his cards first. This is a great travel game because it allows everyone to playfully tease each other and reveals how well the players know each other.
Whatever game you play, the important thing is the memories you create and the relationship that you build along with it.
