What you need: This is a game to play while riding in a car on a road trip, but you do need pen/pencil and paper to keep score.

How to play: As you see letters on billboards, license plates and highway signs, players take turns shouting out the letter and pointing.

The rules: Once a letter has been claimed, it cannot be used by other players. If a player cannot find an unclaimed letter within a minute or two, his or her turn is over.

How to win: The person who finds the most letters after the alphabet has been completed is the winner.

What else you need to know: This game can be made more difficult by limiting letters to only billboard signs or license plates or highway signs.
