Perhaps you have gone traveling with your friends and need something to fill the time while you wait for your flight at the airport. Or maybe you are stuck in a ridiculously long queue at a theme park with nothing to do but stand there. Bingo games might not be an option in this case; however, there are some fun alternatives. Here are some games you can play with your friends on the go when you haven’t taken the board games with you.

How’s Yours is a great detective game to play with friends. One person in the friend group will have to guess what everyone else is thinking about by using the phrase “How’s Yours” only. To play this game, the guesser will have to cover their ears or listen to some music while the rest of the group agree on something they all have, such as a laptop or passport.
Once the group has decided on something, the guesser will ask the question, and everyone else will have to give a vague but honest answer that hints at what they are thinking about. After each clue, the guesser gets to attempt an answer. Essentially, the quicker the guesser can correctly figure out what is being thought of, the better they do. The rest of the friends in the group can then have a go, and you can see who is the best guesser at the end.
I Went To The Market
I Went To The Market is a great game to stimulate the mind and have some fun with friends while doing so. The first person in the group starts by saying, “I went to the market and bought ……..”. For example, they could say, “I went to the market and bought a chocolate bar.” The next person in the group would then repeat this sentence but add another item to the list. As you go around the group, the list increases and keeps going until someone is unable to repeat the list in perfect order. That person is out, and the game continues until there is a single person left who is crowned the champion! The best part about this game is that it can be played at any time and in any place. So if you and your friends are away on holiday, try this game out.
Would You Rather
Would You Rather is a classic game that never seems to get boring, no matter how often you play it. The best part about Would You Rather is the fact that the limits of the game are your imagination. There are some very funny questions that have been asked in this game. A few examples that you can use with your friends include “Would you rather have hands for feet or feet for hands?” and “Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?”
It’s safe to say that this game has had many friends and groups rolling around laughing at the absurdity of the questions and scenarios being asked. Next time you and your friends have time to kill with nothing to do, try playing Would You Rather and see who comes up with the funniest one.
Two Truths And One Lie
Two truths and one lie is the perfect game to learn some things about your friends that you’ve never heard before. In your group of friends, each person will come up with two truths and one lie about themselves. They will take it in turns to say their truths or lies, and everyone else has to guess which one is the lie. If no one is able to guess which one of your statements is a lie, then you get a point.
This game has unraveled some interesting secrets about close friends over the years, so be prepared to discover that you might not know your friends as well as you think.
As far as storytelling games go, Fortunately Unfortunately is up there as one of the best. To play this game, one person in the friend group will start out by beginning the story with an opening statement.
For example, they could say, “Once upon a time, there lived an orphan who was able to move things with his mind,” and the next person will add a plot twist or turn to the story by saying either “Fortunately” or “Unfortunately” and then continue the story. It only ends when you want it to, so you can be as outrageous with your plot twists and as imaginative as you want.
