You can change this game any way you like. You don’t have to guess just the name of the song or artist. For example, you can play music from famous movies and guess the movie in which the song appears.

2. Guess Who I Am

This popular game involves one person playing the role of someone famous and the other players asking him close questions that can only be answered “yes” or “no”, so they can figure out who the famous character is.

3. Cars

Specify the car that you will be looking for on the road. It can be the color red or yellow, or it can be some brand or type of car. For example, a Volkswagen Beetle. Anyone who points out the car first gets a point.

4. Picnic

This game starts with the sentence: “I’m going on a picnic and I’m taking…” Everyone adds one thing they are taking to the picnic. The others then have to repeat all the things listed and add more. For example, the sentence starts with “I’m going on a picnic and I’m taking my scooter, wine, binoculars and…”. Whoever leaves out or forgets one thing loses.

5. Movie Quiz

One person says the name of an actor and the others have to say in which movie the actor played. Whoever says the movie the fastest wins.

6. Alphabet

You come up with different words for each letter of the alphabet exactly as they go in a row. Amnesia, Backpack, City, Dinosaur, Escalator, and so on. The game continues until there is one player left – the winner.

You can also play this game with more difficulty, for example, limiting yourself to names or household items, etc.

7. Stalking

When you’re stuck in traffic or driving alongside a car for a long time, one of you can make up stories about the people in the car. Where are they going? What are they going to do there? What do they do for a living? Etc.

You can play it so that everyone only says one thing, and in the end, a very funny story comes out.

8. Spy

Choose one player, the Spy. The spy chooses any object in the car or outside and says “Watch out for an object beginning with the letter …” Everyone else guesses what to watch out for. Whoever guesses correctly is the spy in the next round. 

If the players can’t guess the object for a long time, the spy can clarify or the players can ask yes/no questions. In addition to letters, the spy can also say traits or colors.
