What you need: This is a game to play while riding in a car on a road trip.

How to play: One person begins the game by saying, "My father owns a grocery store, and in it he sells (something that begins with the letter A, like apples)." The next person says, "My father owns a grocery store, and in it he sells apples and (something that begins with the letter B, like bananas)." The game continues with each player having to recite the entire list and adding a new item for the next letter of the alphabet.

The rules: If someone forgets an item or is completely stumped, that player is out of the game.

How to win: Be able to recite the entire list, A to Z.

What else you need to know: This game can be altered by changing the store. For example, say "My father owns a record store..." and name bands, song titles and album titles.
