4) Hide and Seek: An old spin on a childhood classic. Its the same as the original except this time its car vs car, not person vs person. It is also good to have a designated area, such as a neighborhood, as the play area. The object is to hide your car with you inside while your friend drives around looking for you. If the seeker flashes his or her lights at your car, you are found and it is your turn to seek. This game can be taken as far as your comfortable with, and the farther you take it the more fun it is. Some people hide on the street (kind of stupid), some park behind other cars in random driveways, and even some drive behind houses and park.
How to win: …find someone?
Best Car Hide n’ Seek Memory: Parking in a driveway next to a house that had the exact same car as mine. Later, my friend’s car pulls up to the driveway next to the one I’m in, flashes the lights at the other car, and drives away after realizing I wasn’t in it.
5) E-brake Test/Neutral Test: Less of a game, more of an asshole thing to do to friends while their driving, but fun nonetheless. At any time the passenger sitting in the front seat secretly engages the car’s e-brake or places the car in neutral. I found it best to do this while at stop lights. When the light turns green the driver ends up just reving their engine, looking like a douche who thinks his Saturn Ion is cool, before realizing the car is out of gear. As a bonus you can try to both engage the e-brake and place the car in neutral at the same time. After embarrassingly revving their engine, the driver slowly grinds away against their e-brake until they realize whats wrong.
How to Win: Make it through high school with this never happening to you
Worst Memory: Someone putting my car in neutral at a stoplight so when the light turned green I revved my engine and looked like a douche who thought my Saturn Ion was cool. It was probably Justin.
6) Other Driver Test: Again, less of a game and more of just an asshole thing to do. While second in line at a stop light watch the person in front of you carefully. If they’re putting on makeup, texting, or just generally not paying attention honk your horn as if the light had turned green. If they really weren’t paying attention theyll jump forward, slam on the brakes when they realize the light is still red, then look angrily in the rear view mirror.
When this game stops being fun: When someone gets out of the car in front of you.
7) General Driver vs Passenger Games: Great to play to pass the time on long trips. Some example of these games include who can stand listening the Spanish radio station the longest, who can last with the windows up and heat all the way up the longest, who can go the longest with their head out the window in cold weather. They’re simple, usually quick (depending on how stubborn your friends are), and probably only fun if your in a car full of guys. I can’t imagine any girl enjoying any of these games. Maybe a Spanish girl could enjoy the Spanish radio one.
Best Driver vs Passenger Competition: Playing the head out the window game against a friend in -10° weather. We made it all the way home. Both of us won. Or maybe both of us lost.
