Bingo: A Way to Fight the Boredom While Traveling

Cheeky Bingo

What do 15 hour flights, 4 hour bus rides and 2 hour train rides have in common?

Without any entertainment, each form of traveling will get boring at some point. The demand for travel entertainment has sparked the interest of many companies as they now have a new target market to promote their products to, the market being seasoned travelers. Many people combat the monotony of a bus or train ride with board games like road bingo. Travel Bingo cards are simple to set up, yet the “on-the-road” version of the game is engaging enough so that you and your travel companions will remain entertained until you reach your next destination.

Travelers have not only resorted to board games for travel amusement. Because of the digital age we are living in, they are seeking entertainment through their gadgets. According to Statista, the online gaming market more than quintupled in size in the span of ten years, from 7.4 to 37.6 billion dollars in 2013. Inside Mobile Apps stated that in November of last year, the September launch of the CheekyBingo mobile app led to a total of 54 million played bingo cards in the UK. Imagine the total sales from online bingo apps collectively.

Although bingo is an ancient game typically associated with grandmothers frequenting bingo halls, over the past few years the face of bingo — specifically online bingo — has grown appealing to younger generations. It’s the booming popularity of online bingo that has reminded everyone of the amusement that also comes from regular bingo.

But in case you don’t have travel bingo cards or an online bingo game at your disposal, here are some cheap apps that you could download on your gadgets.

What’s amazing about these apps is that these are all under the theme of road games.

Road Trip Scavenger Hunt

This is a multiplayer game that randomizes scavenger items such as objects, words, or a mix of both. As soon as the item is spotted, all you have to do is click on the player to automatically increase their score and have the next item appear.

Ice Breakers Road Trip

Ice Breakers is more of a conversation starter rather than a road game but it’s still equally amusing.

AdLibs! It’s better than [noun]

Everybody loves building crazy stories with this classic game. AdLibs! adds a new story every week, and the great thing about it is that it’s an entertaining app that can be played both on and off the road.

App Advice lists down a few more road games if these don’t suit your taste.
