Road Trip Game Ideas

As a family of 6 we tend to travel domestically and only where we can drive. Flying just runs into too much money for us especially when you add in food, accommodations for 6, etc. Two things we’ve learned over the years, be prepared for just about anything, and the kids handle road trips better if they’re engaged and entertained.

That’s why I wrote this article for Rotolo’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for spur-of-the-moment road trip games to play in the car.

These are some of our favorites. They don’t require extra items, almost everyone in the family can play, and the rules are fairly simple.

Am I missing any? What are some of your favorite road trip games?

Prologue
Nine and a half years earlier

Olivia hadn’t imagined that her first time would be in a large walk-in linen closet, even if it
was in a five star hotel. One tentative kiss from the shy, sweet Alexander had changed
everything.
Both of them were shaking in each other’s arms, the napkins they had come for lay strewn
beside them by their feet.
Alexander’s touch stole Olivia’s breath. Everything seemed to move in slow motion. The
inevitability was mesmerizing.
This shouldn’t be happening…We’ve only known each other a few weeks. Six whole
wonderful, romantic weeks.
But no words would come out.
Was that romantic music playing only inside her head?
Within minutes their world turned into a grown up paradise where only love and pleasure
existed.
Enveloped within those large muscular arms, Olivia welcomed the heat in her pulsating
body as she tried to control her erratic breathing.
She smiled under Alexander’s stare, grateful that he also looked as shaken up as she was.
“Olivia, wow.” His low voice surrounded her in their cocoon. She loved the delicious scent
of his understated cologne mingled with the smell of lemony fresh laundry.
“I…I’m sorry, Olivia. Are you OK? Did I hurt you?”
When she shook her head he sighed and added, “Good. I couldn’t help myself, I love
you…so much.” He kissed her again and she wanted to cry from his sweetness. Her heart
thrummed even faster as she looked up into his frank, green eyes. They were filled with awe as if
he hadn’t realized the intensity of what he felt until the words had come out.
Their incredible bond of having given each other the gift of their virginities could never be
broken. She felt it in her bones and saw it clearly in his face that Alexander was in the same
exact nirvana.

2 Excerpts from From Geek to Greek Billionaire By Gloria Silk
As if psychic, he whispered into her temple, his warmth breath sending shivers of delight
through her body, “You know I love you very much, right, Olivia? So much…it hurts. This isn’t
just…”
She nodded and smiled, blinking tears away to enjoy the vision of the adoration in his
eyes. In his arms she felt absolutely beautiful, not overweight or clumsy, or geeky.
Everything felt so perfect, so right.
She could imagine meeting his large family, those Anderson boys and the parents. She
visualized how much her parents and her younger sister, Lisa would love this humble, shy yet
amazing guy.
But there was no rush for any of that. At eighteen she was still in college to pursue interior
design, and he was considering his options right here in Wrightsville Beach or in his birth
country, Greece.
“I can’t wait to show you off at the gala tomorrow.” Alexander’s deep slow laugh
reverberated within his chest straight into her heart.
“You make me so happy, Olivia. I could never imagine feeling like this about anyone in
the world.” His lips trailed her temple to her ear, then from her cheek to her mouth.
Another kiss to seal their love. It was magical.
She was about to admit her love for him when the loud knock on the door jarred her.
“Hey, Alexander, are you there? Where’d you disappear to?” Brittany’s nasal voice broke
through their haven.
Cool air met Olivia’s exposed upper body, making her shiver.
Alexander sighed and with a regretful expression let her go. “Be there shortly.” He called
out. Then he helped her with her with her blouse before adjusting his own clothing.
“This summer, today, they’ve been the most important times of my life. You’re
unforgettable. My Olivia.”
She felt her lower lip tremble again as she kept her happy tears at bay and smiled. They
would see each other later and she would tell him that she loved him too.
It would all work out, she just knew it.
