Tired of sitting in silence during car rides, or not having anything to talk about? Shotgun is the perfect, family friendly game for those long, boring car rides! Answer random questions, some require speed, others require accuracy. The game lasts as long as the trip!

To setup, just place all of the cards into the bag. Choose a player to be the reader, normally the player riding shotgun is chosen. The game is ready to begin


The reader will begin by drawing a card from the bag. They will then read the card aloud to the other players in the car. The first player to answer, and answer correctly, gets to keep the card and earn a point! The reader will then draw another card from the bag and read it aloud, giving the players another chance to win points.

The position of reader may rotate through the car if you wish. If not, the same player may be the reader throughout the whole course of the game. The game comes to an end whenever the trip is over or you stop for food. The player who has accumulated the most points wins the game.
