When the car is loaded up for your next family road trip, you won't want to leave home without some games to play. But board games are bulky and card games are tricky to play without a table.
Many travelers pass the time by playing road games. You might remember playing Slug Bug with your siblings, or the Alphabet Game with your cousins. That's because the best way to stay entertained on the road is to play a game that factors in your surroundings.
This is why every family that's traveling by car should download the app, Road Trip Bingo. It's available to Apple users, and even thought it's not a free download, we think it's worth $1.99 price tag. And when your car is loaded with happy passengers, you'll agree.
The game is already one of the top 200 games in the U.S. Using your iPhone's touch screen, the app adapts the classic game of Bingo for fun in the car. Did you just pass a tree? A cow? Or maybe a bus? Tap the screen to mark off items as you find them.
Kids love this game. There's even a feature in the app that helps the young ones out if they ever get stuck. Just tap and hold a tile down, and the app will generate a description and say the name of the item out loud.
There are hundreds of items to search for, and you can add your own items too. Plus, there are thousands of unique Bingo cards, so no cheating.
When someone fills an entire row of tiles, they win—just like regular Bingo. When someone wins, just restart the game and play again.
