How to Play This Road Trip App
For car, bus, or train rides, Road-Trip-Bingo HD will encourage your kids to watch out the window to observe their surroundings. Played on a traditional bingo board, this version replaces numbers with over 40 hand-drawn travel items. The bingo cards contain signs, animals, vehicles, and other roadside attractions. Kids tap an image on the card when they see it outside; and the first to get bingo wins.
Why This App is a Must for Traveling Kids
There are lots of travel bingo apps, but this iPad version races ahead of the others by offering a two-bingo-boards mode so two players can compete. Players huddle around the same iPad by sitting either side-by-side or across from each other.
Also good is the way the items have been hand drawn in such a way as to make it easy for even young kids to understand how to play. For example, there are a variety of colored cars on the Bingo boards. The keen observer quickly understands that identifying the color of the vehicle is important. There is no voice-over.
Road-Trip-Bingo HD boasts of thousands of cards, so kids will always have new games to play. And the game features a classical music soundtrack that is pleasing to all.
Road-Trip-Bingo HD, the version for the iPad, is great for families that like to play games together while traveling. The iPhone/iPod Touch version called Road-Trip-Bingo is equally as good, but it is minus the two-player mode.
