Road Trip

I may be odd, but I personally love me a good long road-trip. There's something exciting about travelling somewhere new, and seeing so many sights along the way. When I was younger, my siblings and I got pretty inventive with our games. However, there are only so many ways to reinvent "I Spy" before it gets a little old. This is why I love that Marbles carries so many great games for the open road.

USA PlateTo start things off, there are several games that are designed specifically for the long trips. Travel Bingo and the USA License Plate Game work on your focus and exercise a little geography as well. Then there's the new Spot It on the Road! For those of you that are not familiar with the original Spot It, you're missing out on one of the best games ever! So Spot It on the Road takes the classic hit and customizes it for the car. I can't wait to see this one used on the next trip.

PerplexusNext are some of my personal favorites that just happen to make good travel games as well. I dare anyone to play me in a game of Square Up! This game is so addicting with its two tile sliding boards and shakers. What makes it best for the road is that the shakers are self contained, and the boards have lids to hold all the tiles. My other recommendation is Perplexus Epic. This 3-D maze takes the game of labyrinth to a whole new level. The challenging obstacle course is held within a sphere, and has me turning this globe in all different directions to guide my marble to the end. The best part is there are no extra pieces, so I don't have to worry about losing anything.

KwizniacOk, although I love to play games in the car, my role has changed quite a bit from my childhood. Now I'm the one behind the wheel saying "NO!" to the classic question of "are we there yet?". So while I wish I could play all of these, someone's gotta keep their eyes on the road. That's where Kwizniac comes in. This boardless trivia game plays out somewhat like reverse twenty questions. Not only are we able to learn fun new facts about a broad range of topics, but I'm able to play with everyone in the car. So the time flies even for me! BrainCoach Nick
