14 Road Trip Games Adults Will Actually Enjoy

Before tablets and podcasts, we used games to keep us entertained. For your next road trip, try some of these games to keep you going along the way.

Road trips always seem like a great idea at the beginning, and they are! But let's face it: spending hours on end in a moving metal box with the same people can take its toll on your patience. Especially if energetic kids are involved.

So here, to combat potential boredom and irritability in passengers any age, are some fun road trip games to keep everyone in the car happy:

1. If you have some sleepy passengers in the car, you should definitely play "While You Were Sleeping."

2. Change ONE letter of a title and get people to guess it by describing the plot.

The game: Change ONE letter of a title and get people to guess it by describing the plot. Unfortunately this game doesn't have a name like the others do, but it's still super fun and you can play it anywhere.

The rules:

• Pick a movie, video game, TV show, or book title and change one letter of it. Don't pick anything to obscure.

• Get people to guess it by describing the plot of the new title you created. For example, you might change Beauty and the Beast to Beauty and the Feast, and make up a new plot about a beautiful woman who runs a catering company and has to plan the biggest meal of her career.

• Adding or subtracting a letter from the title also works, just as long as it's still only one letter. Example: Star Warts instead of Star Wars

3. For a good old-fashioned guessing game, play "21 Questions."

4. If your car mates are current and hip on events, then you should play "Did You Hear That...?"

5. For a car full of human jukeboxes, play "The Singing Game."

6. If your car is full of film buffs, play "The Movie Game."

7. When you have a car full of optimists, play "Fortunately/Unfortunately."

8. All know-it-alls will spark some fierce competition if you play "The Alphabet Categories."

9. If you love to get your snack on, definitely play "Regional Food Master."

10. For the spontaneous math wizards, play "The Counting Game."

11. For all the walking encyclopedias, play "The Name Game."

12. For the aspiring DJs in your car, play "Battle of the Bands."

13. If you consider yourself a wordsmith, then definitely play "Word Association."

14. If you are looking for an easy laugh, play "Cows on My Side."

15. And if you want to kick it old-school, play "The Alphabet Game."
