We got stuck in traffic last Friday, so out of boredom I suggested that we play “The License Plate Game”.
I had been under the impression that this game was predicated on finding the letters of the alphabet in the FIRST LETTER of the alphabetic portion of the plate. To my dismay, in Washington state it seems that this letter will invariably be “A” or “B”, unless the numbers precede the letters, then it’s “W”, “X” or “Y”. There are veriations of course, such as vanity plates, and out of state plates.
There is a variant of the game for spotting plates from all 50 states, but with our limited travel, it could take months to complete!
We used to have a card game like this, you would get points for finding whatever was on a card in your hand; For example, A garbage truck, a traffic cone, bicyclists. Not real handy for the driver to be trying to play cards and drive at the same time. What are your car games? We are tired of the one where you have a petty disagreement, and the one who rides in bitter silence for the longest time, wins.
