When we were kids and we traveled with our parents, we didn’t have cellphones or portable devices that played movies to keep us entertained. All we had was picking fights with our sisters, asking “when are we going to get there?” or some lame ass car game. Some car games didn’t require any playing pieces, like identifying all 50 states by license plate or playing “what’s that carcass?” In Texas, “armadillo” always wins.
We had a car bingo game when I was a kid. Each person got a card with pictures on it. When you spotted something that was on your card, then you slid a little plastic cover over the picture. When you covered all your spaces, then you were the winner. Which would result in an hour long argument over whether or not the dog you saw had to be black and white like the dog in the picture or could it be any dog.
