How do you play Road Trip Bingo?

This printable game is designed for up to six players, the colorful cards feature common things that you’d see on a road trip.

To play the BINGO game you will need:

  • Road trip bingo cards (see above)
  • (Optional) Lamination material
  • Dry erase markers or another way to mark your bingo card
  • Things you would see on a road trip!
  • Plastic bag to hold game pieces

Car Bingo Game Play Steps

  1. Print the cards out on cardstock and laminate them for extra durability and BINGO playing fun. After they’re laminated, kids could also use the game while in the car by marking off the spots of the things they see along the way with a dry erase marker.
  2. You can play traditional bingo rules that call for 5 in a row (diagonal, horizontal or vertical) or play alternative games like four corners or blackout…although with these cards if everyone sees the same thing, they will all get blackout at the same time.
  3. Store the cards together in a zip top bag for BINGO playing fun all vacation long!

  • Printed road trip bingo cards
  • (Optional) Lamination material
  • Dry erase markers or another way to mark your bingo card


  • Things you would see on a road trip - car, window, etc. 🙂
  • Plastic bag to hold game pieces


  1. Preparation: Print the road trip bingo cards out on card stock or thick paper and laminate them.
  2. Once on the road, distribute a bingo card to each player along with a dry erase marker.
  3. Explain the rules: Make sure everyone understands the goal of the game, which is to be the first to spot the items on their card and mark off a complete row, column, or diagonal. You can also play for a full-card blackout, where the goal is to find all the items on the card.
  4. Start the game: As you drive down the road (driver is NOT playing!), players should keep their eyes peeled for the items on their card. When a player spots an item, call it out and mark it off.
  5. BINGO!: When a player has marked off a complete row, column, or diagonal, they should call out "Bingo!" The game pauses, and everyone checks the winning player's card to confirm the win.
  6. Play for second place: Bingo can either end or continue for second place or until all players have achieved a "Bingo!" If playing for a full-card blackout, the game continues until someone has marked off all the items on their card.
  7. Repeat the game by switching cards and starting over.
