Car Games That Go The Distance: The Banana Game

If you’re getting tired of the same old car games, we’ve got a new one for you. The Banana Game is unexpected, spontaneous, and fun for all ages.

A bright twist on the classic I Spy, the Banana Game gives players a reason to enjoy the scenery outside, and best of all, it can go on for as long as you want to play. The game can be easily started, paused, and re-started throughout your entire trip.

Play the Banana Game: when there are a lot of miles between you and the next stop on your sightseeing itinerary.

How to Play

  • To begin, one player announces, “BANANA GAME!”
  • When a player spots something yellow outside the car, they have to call it out.
  • If two players notice the same yellow item, the first person to call it gets the correlating points for the item.

The player with the most points when you reach your destination wins!
