Best Campervan Games- Travel Games for 2 Players, Kids & Groups

What are the Best Campervan Games? Travel games for 2 players, kids & groups

There is nothing better than to get away from it all in your campervan, play a game, have a drink and switch off. It can be so refreshing not to have the TV blaring away and to actually interact with family and friends by playing a campervan game. 

However- as most of us know space can be limited in a campervan so we need to think about smaller games that take up less room. 

So what are the best travel games for a campervan that come in small sizes? We have come up with a list of great games that we have played that have kept us entertained for hours over the years. We have split them down into categories to make it easier for you to narrow down your choices, however bear in mind some games do span multiple categories (because they are that good!) 

Best Campervan Games for 2 players

1. Dobble

Now an award winning visual perception game that will cause laughter all around. Players compete to find the only matching symbol on each card (which is harder than you think!) You need lightning quick reactions with this one! 

Number of players: 2-8

Age- 6yrs +

2. Bananagrams

Think scrabble against the clock and without a board. This frantic word game is now a top hit with adults and children and all it requires you to do is use up all your letters to be crowned top banana!

3. Monopoly Deal

This twist on the original board game is so much fun (when you are winning!) We actually think this version is better than the original game as it’s so much quicker. The aim is to complete 3 property sets but you have to be careful of your opponents debt collecting, stealing your properties or even stealing complete property sets (that hurts!)

4. Hive

Hive is a highly addictive strategic game that is only for 2 players and can be played anywhere with a flat surface. The object of the game is simple- to surround your opponents queen bug whilst also protecting yours from your opponent. Sounds simple right? It takes more strategy than you think!

Best campervan games for groups

1. Mini Jenga

The mini version of this wood stack balance game really is tiny which makes it even more tricky- especially for those with big hands/fingers! 

We made this game even harder by writing numbers on the wooden blocks and using a dice. You can then only pull out the number on the block which corresponds to the number on the dice.

2. Cards Against Humanity

This one needs no introduction. If you are easily offended then it may best to stay clear of this game! If you have a good sense of humour and you have dirty or wrong minded friends then you are in for a fun game! The game is simple- one player asks a question from the black card and all others answer with their funniest white card. The black card holder chooses the most funny white card and that person gets all the cards. The person with the most cards at the end wins.

Number of players: 4+

3. Sushi Go

A strategy game of draft and pass trying to make up winning combinations of sushi to score the most points. This is a super fun group card game that can be played by people of most ages- probably a good warm up game before playing the less tame cards against humanity! 

Number of players: 2-5 players

Age: 7+

4. Jungle Speed

You need quick reflexes and observing skills for this one which can be hard when you are all in fits of uncontrollable laughter. The name of the game is to get rid of all of your cards and to do so you must match them with your opponents. Sounds easy but some of the cards are almost identical but not quite so you have to be super observant.

5. Telestrations

We’ve included this one even though it’s on the larger side because it is so good. We’ve played this with lots of different groups of people and it always without fail causes people to be in hysterics. The game is basically Chinese whispers in drawing form.

Number of players: 2-8

Age: 12+

6. Ultimate Werewolf

This game is great for larger groups. Each player has an agenda- villagers hunt down werewolves and werewolves convince villagers they are innocent whilst killing them at night! The name of the game is to decipher who are the werewolves before they kill all the villagers!
