Car games are games played to pass the time on long car journeys, often started by parents to amuse restless children. They generally require little or no equipment or playing space. Some such games are designed specifically to be played while traveling (e.g. the license plate game, the Alphabet Game or Padiddle), while others are games that can be played in a variety of settings including car journeys (e.g. twenty questions).

Car tag[edit]

A common car game is car tag. Car tag is when people spot other cars based on their name or model. A person will shout the name and usually react by punching or hitting another passenger. The game ends when the travellers reach their destination, and the person who spotted the most wins. Cars in a dealership lot do not count since they are not owned by anyone. Certain models of car may trigger other effects beyond or instead of awarding points, as listed below.
