Long-distance travel on wheels can be pretty dull and grueling when all you do on the road is, well, ride. However, when you plan your trip ahead and spice it up with a number of interesting, creative things, it can be an unforgettable experience!
In case you were wondering how to plan a road trip whether by car, the nearest Sacramento charter bus, or the closest limo bus in Sacramento, here are 3 games you can play with the people you are traveling with to make this journey fun, exciting and entirely memorable! Oh, and – check out these 5 things you should keep in mind when on a long bus trip, too.
A REMINDER: What is Sacramento’s best transportation company in the area? Limo MGM is! With thousands of happy and returning customers, nothing makes this crew happy like knowing the clients were attended properly, had fun on the road (and rode in comfort!), and got the type of transportation they had hoped for. If you are planning a trip and are more of a road trip than air transport kind of a person, check out MGM’s versatile fleet and the services that are truly amazing!
Anyway, here are the games, as promised:
Quick-witted and agile wordsmiths simply adore this game! But, how do you play Fortunately, Unfortunately, if you are new to the rules? It’s simple: the point is to reverse the fortune of the previous statement. In case you are not quick enough, or you mess up, you get a strike. Three strikes and you’re out.
The game can extend to as many people there are in the room (or, in your case, in the vehicle), and here’s how to play it:
- Someone begins the game by saying “Fortunately,” and then something good
- The next person has to find something unfortunate about what’s been said, that is – say “Unfortunately” to that statement
A game like this is super fun when you are traveling with your family, friends, with your co-workers or any other group. FYI, this is a perfect game to play when you have a layover in San Francisco national airport or some similar conundrum, too!
The Movie Game
Think you know everything there is to know about the film? Think again! If you are a movie buff, you’ll fall not only get challenged by this game but fall in love with it in an instant! The point of the game is to connect actors with movies that they’ve starred in.
How to play the Movie Game? This is how:
- Someone starts the game by naming an actor/actress
- The next person continues by naming the film that actor/actress has starred in
- The following person now needs to name another, different actor/actress who starred in that movie
- Then another person needs to say a movie the newly mentioned actor played in
The game continues until someone is unable to keep the chain going. You can play individually (“every man for himself”) or in pairs.
Never Have I Ever
A game as old as time (well, probably not as old as time, but close) is a fantastic way to spend your time on the road. Lately, Never Have I Ever has been known to involve drinking to spice up the game, but you don’t have to do it that way but choose another “punishment” for when you “haven’t ever” done something. A game similar to Never Have I Ever is Truth or Dare, but since you are on wheels, options for the “dare” are limiting.
This is how you play Never Have I Ever:
The players usually get into a circle; but, since you’ll be on a bus, just turning face-to-face to one another should do. Then:
- The first player says a thing they’ve never done before starting with “Never have I ever.”
- If, at some point in your life, you’ve done this, you drink or do something else the group has agreed on
The play can continue for as long as the players don’t get bored. Plus, the idea is not to make pointless statements that no one can relate to but mention something that’d happened in real time and space.
Games on the road are a great way to make that time memorable and fun but how you travel also marks the way your trip is going to go. But, how to choose the best way to travel? Just weigh pros and cos. Doesn’t it feel better to relax rather than drive long hours? Sure it does! When you book with MGM, you can pick anything from such vehicles like Mercedes S550 nearby, Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes Sprinter Exec 2016 to super luxurious and comfortable Ford F550 Coach Bus, Freightliner Limo Bus and MCI J4500 Coach Bus (and that’s just to name a few!). Plus, with the MGM customer service team, you’ll be able to customize your travels the way it feels right!
