Looking for games to play on long drives with your family or friends? Here’s a fun game I like to play whenever I’m on a road trip (it also doubles as a drinking game, but NOT at the same time, obviously).
“Guess That Tune” Road Trip Game for Music Lovers
Essentially, you connect your AUX (or bluetooth for all of you that have nicer cars than me) to your phone and bring up the Guess that Tune playlist on Spotify. There’s a ton of famous songs on this playlist, as well as some lesser known ones that make the game a bit more complicated.
Press shuffle and then everyone has to start trying to guess what the song and artist is. Once someone guesses correctly, or at least once someone is really confident they guessed correctly, reveal answer and move along to the next one.
You can keep score if you’re feeling competitive, but I usually just like the challenge of guessing without needing to tally points.
One person will have to be in charge of clicking the next button on their phone or through the car, but it’s pretty easy to not look at what the next song is, so they can play along too.
If you’re using bluetooth, you might need to cover up the screen on your car if it automatically tells you what’s playing– especially if you suspect your car is filled with cheaters.
“Guess That Tune” Drinking Game for Music Lovers
Okay, definitely DO NOT play the drinking version while driving. I feel like that should go without saying.
The drinking game version is played the same way as the road trip one, but with beer. There are really only three drinking rules, but feel free to get creative and add more.
1. Whenever someone guesses the artist or the song title correctly, everyone else has to drink once.*
2. Whenever someone guesses the artist and the song title correctly, everyone else has to drink twice.
3. If no one guesses the artist or the song title, everyone drinks three times.
*(This means you could have two people not drinking during a round- the one who guessed the artist, and the one who guessed the song title.)
