Let the games begin! Whether you’re a travel Scrabble whizz or the king of 20 Questions, #TTOT is the place to be to discuss your favourite ways to pass the time while on the road, in the air or atop the sea. We’ve had so many who-dunnits and A to Z suggestions come in we’ll never be board again. I-spy we’re onto a real winner this week. Game on!
The questions this week were:
Q1. What is the best road trip game?
Q2. Do you have a game you can play with anybody on the road, regardless of language or culture?
Q3. What are the best game apps?
Q4. What’s the best beach game to play?
Q5. Favourite games to play all by yourself when travelling solo?
The ‘Taking the Peace’ Shout Out for failing to keep mum.
@Terravision_eu: When I was a kid, “King of Silence” wins. Who can keep quiet the longest…to my mom’s despair, I never won!
The ‘Over The Hill and Fart Away’ Shout Out for digit-al entertainment.
@JaysTravellings: Pull my finger! Hehe.
The ‘Artistic Licence and Registration Please’ Shout Out for auto(mobile) tuning.
@loco2: Making up names for bands using the last 3 letters from number plates. So, L617 MJO would be Majestic Javelin Orks…
The ‘Oops Upside Your Head’ Shout Out for being a right slapper.
@beatthebrochure: Sitting behind the driver and smacking him/her on the head at random intervals. Good fun and not in the slightest bit annoying.
The ‘White Knuckle Ride’ Shout Out for keeping car-m and carrying on.
@FraserApartment: Isn’t thumb war a bit dangerous if you’re the driver?
The ‘Onomat-app-oeia’ Shout Out for getting a little bit antsy.
@Inga_Ros: Ant Smasher. I just love the squishy sound they make when I smash them with my finger.
The ‘Batman’ Shout Out for making the most out of The Situation.
@HW_Travel: Definitely paddle ball. Don’t mean to brag-but I’m the undisputed champion on the Jersey Shore.
The ‘Hell In A Shell’ Shout Out because no pain, no grain!
@Thedelhiway: Beach wrestling. Squash them in the sand!
The ‘Born To Crill’ Shout Out for taking the claw into your own hands.
@Travel_Rich: I once found pieces of old dead crab and put them together to form a super crab army. Not weird at all.
The ‘Chairman Of The Board’ Shout Out for dry humour.
@eurapart: Get your towel on the sun lounger first. Should be an Olympic sport.
The ‘Uncomfortably Numb’ Shout Out for interesting Italian jobs.
@TopdeckTravel: The rules to the game are 1) Yell ‘spot a mini’ 2) give the person next to you a dead arm. Mature.
The ‘Lung Time Coming’ Shout Out for sea-ring insults.
@UnnaWildt: ‘’Who’s the first under water?/The last one under water is [something not very nice]!’’
