Summary

Summary

Turn those times when you have to sit still for hours into fun occasions you actually look forward to. More travel games than you'll find anyplace else--352 pages crammed with things to do--are specially designed for kids and families when everybody's cooped up in a car or plane, or when you're stuck in a long line or at a slow-food restaurant. Try one of the guessing games where the props are clothes people around you are wearing. Play the new version of Twenty Questions, with clever tactics and winning strategies. Choose from two types of Charades--one noisy and active, the other with pencil and paper. On the road, make hilarious anagrams of words on the back a truck, or edit bumper stickers to mean the opposite of their intention. If all else fails, watch what happens when you strike up a chorus of "Oh You Can't Get to Heaven on Roller Skates" in a crowd.
