Car Games for the Family: Brain Quest

Brain Quest for the CarIf you are going on a long car trip with the family, you’ll want to bring along Brain Quest for the Car, from Workman Publishing.

Brain Quest is a series of cards, including suggestions for games involving the cards, with questions and answers that enlighten and amuse. Brain Quest for the Car contains 1,100 Questions and 1,100 Answers “all about America.”

There are two packs of cards, each joined at a corner so you do not have to worry about losing individual cards.  You can keep your game as simple as quizzing an opponent or another team, or you can try one of the six fun games that draw upon the cards.

The cards are geared for ages 7-12, but I think most kindergartners could participate as a team member. Brain Quest also makes flashcard games for children as young as 2 and has games based on activities, such as bath time, bed time, reading and other themes. You can have more fun with features like Stump the Genius at

With Brain Quest for the Car, you can also play games with specific states, to match your road trip route and generate excitement about your destinations. Brain Quest for the Car is the perfect compliment for a stateside vacation.
