What are the best games for travel? The ones you will play!
I spent many trips packing more complicated games like Ticket to Ride or Catan – they never came out of the car. These family favorite games are just too complicated to easily whip out and play. And they’re definitely too complicated to easily teach to new friends and family.
Moms and Dads, I know what you’re thinking. “I have to take some school books. What if they forget ‘xyz’.” Remember that there is always some learning that can be gotten through fun games; we just have to change the way we’re looking at it. Sometimes, you just have to change your viewpoint to see gameschool as a family priority.

Think small. Small boxes don’t take up much space in a bag and are less likely to be smashed.
Great for a group, try to get the lowest score. This is similar to the card game Golf. Math and fun.
Who can pass up tossing little pigs? There’s a reason this one has been around for a while! It’s easy enough for all ages.
Don’t just take games for the group. These multi-purpose games are also good for some alone time.
Forget the TV series, fall in love with Jamie and Claire with the words of these Outlander tomes. Audio is the only way here because the narrator is fabulous and her accents are amazing. You’ll be hooked.
Time travel. History. Magic. Vampires. Love. I’ve always said it’s like Harry Potter for grown ups. I might have listened to the Discovery of Witches set multiple times thanks to the fabulous narrations.
Bring the laughs to the crowd.
Get ready for laughing and table slapping and all over silliness. Teenage groups love it and anyone can join in. This one is fun!
Throw some of these cards in a big bag, and giggle your way through a game with a large group. Good for all ages.
