Road trip soon? A fun game to pass time!

Friday, May 9, 2003 7:41 AM
OK, this will sound totally geeky [and it is] but when Bassistist and I go on road trips we play our own version of "20 Questions" to help pass the time. It's quite fun. Here's how it works:

"Coaster 20 Questions." Each person in the car takes a turn thinking of a coaster. Everyone else in the car takes turns asking questions in an effort to guess the coaster. If after 20 questions no one has guessed correctly the answer is revealed. Questions *must* be phrased so that the answer is either "yes" or "no." Depending on the level of coaster knowledge of those playing you can set the rules to only include operating coasters, or if you're playing with true geeks you can include coasters that are defunct or SBNO.

"Amusement Park 20 Questions." For a real challenge the game can be expended to include any ride or attraction at a park. Again, depending on the group defunct or SBNO rides can be included.

Dawn...Gator...I suggest you start studying for our ACE Con-Quest trip ;)

Study??? I don't THINK so...;) Besides, if I don't know all the useless coaster trivia I'll ever need by NOW, I'll never know it anyway...

Studying is for losers....and students I guess....

Sounds like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I don't know a single coaster enthusiast on a personal basis, and therefore it would be a really short game (or a really long game, depending on who was asking the questions).

Some people were playing that in the Millennium Force queue last summer. But be aware that when you're playing with coaster übergeeks, it might not be quite as much fun... :)

No doubt, Dave! Thankfully there are none in the group I'm travelling with to Con -- well, except maybe for Gator ;)

Sheesh, my family thinks I'm too coaster geeky as it is...if I brought up a game like this on the way down to SRM they'd probably kick me out of the car.

Moosh, you'll be getting a cease and desist letter soon about that sig!!!! ;)

My solution to a road trip....an MP3 player with a 60 gig hard drive. It would take a drive to the moon to listen to every one of my CDs I have on there!

I wouldn't qualify as a *coaster* ├╝bergeek, maybe just an ├╝bergeek in general....

I wonder how a coaster-themed round of Botticelli would go over...

Moosh hates it when people refer to themselves in the third person.

Usually when I am on road trips I make everyone in the car play the "Watch out for cops so I don't get a speeding ticket game" its quite fun and useful.

Andy hates people who complain. And people who turn the discussion to completely different topics. And people who continue to talk long after everyone has stopped paying attention.
