Name that tune

This is a classic game where everyone can participate. To get started, first, you will need your car stereo or a mobile device, like a smartphone or a tablet where you can store your music.

Next, one person can be in charge of operating the music player, and the rest can be the contestants who will guess the title of the songs. Finally, the first one to guess the title of the song correctly gets a point, and the player who gets the most points wins, it’s that simple.

The great thing about this game is you can have a sense of each other’s musical tastes, and you can easily burst into to an impromptu sing-along. Good times for everyone.

Guess the Celebrity

A player starts the game by mentioning something about the famous person, what he or she is best known for, and the rest of the participants can give their answers.

Two truths and a lie

Going on a trip is a good opportunity to get know each other better, and this game works great for those moments. Two truths and a lie, as the name implies, has a straightforward rule. One player will think of three statements: two of them are true, and the other one is false.

The other participants will try to guess which statements are true and false. More than getting the most accurate guesses, this game aims to break the ice and start further conversations that go beyond the game. If you are travelling with workmates, this game is a good way to get to know them even better.
