Long drives to comps suck.
We started playing Highway Cribbage this year but what if any other games do people play while driving to pass time.

One game of Highway Cribbage can take 3-5 Hrs.
Beer Pong can get ya hammered in a 1/2 hr. I'd try almost anything once though!

I'd like to hear how Highway Cribbage is played.

My wife likes the old ABC game. We play as a team, finding each letter of the alphabet in order from A through Z. It has to start a word and it has be outside the vehicle. Gets old pretty quick for me, but not my wife...hence the request for HC rules!

We bought some books on tape to listen to along the way. Satellite radio should help a lot too.

License plate game if its truly a long trip somewhere - can be fun for kids.

I'm interested in Highway Cribbage too. How do you play?

Our version of Highway cribbage

When you get passed by a car, you use the license plates 3 numbers to make your score. 0's are 10 so a 055 would peg you 6 and so on. to keep the game going you also use the mile markers as a persons turn. Personal plates or dealer plates that use only letters are wild cards and you use the letters on a phone pad to convert to numbers. Semi trucks have long plate numbers so you use the best 5
For a quicker version you use the letters and numbers but only the best 5 to make your score.

I'm always by myself so it's hit shuffle on the Ipod, audio book, or SiriusXM. I simply cannot listen to the local garbage on terrestrial radio.

Actually, often times I will turn it all off and just enjoy the quiet.

I like to listen to the Pearl Jam channel as well until my teammate has had enough of it. Then it's usually time for some Dead or a Comedy channel.

I don't do comps, but on long trips when the kids get out of hand, we like to play the quiet game. First one to talk loses. :grin:
