By A Customer on December 8, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for adults who travel by car over long distances. It has games and puzzles that require thought, logic, and creativity. This is *not* a book for children because of the complexity of the games. It is, however, a great book for friends or family who are traveling together. I highly recommend it!

I should have paid attention to a previous reviewer. This would more appropriately be titled, "Travel Word Games for Young and Old". I was looking for a travel game specifically geared towards adults- meaning adult themes and content along the same lines as "Scruples". Games that stimulate adult discussions and debates about politics, history, and social values. This is not it.

There are some games that require a more mature brain for the word-logic, but nothing I would consider impossible for young people to play. I doubt I can use this book on my upcoming trip as my fellow travelers enjoy a good debate but perhaps at parties or functions where people are not completely familiar with each other (showers, church functions, company parties) it might be a nice ice breaker.

Book is good for a few ideas but I wished it had more. Seemed like the games were pretty similar. I needed it for senior citizens on a bus and most of these games were geared toward riding in a car with a small group.

I was hoping for something for "group" travel, like on a bus. The items in this book are better for small groups. Some of the games are fairly complicated, and a little beyond more than 3-4 people.

We love to play games while driving. We don't fly so we drive to all our destinations. This book gave us lots of ideas for playing games and having a great time while travelling.
