Games are a great way to fill time, and there is a varied selection of game types you can enjoy. If you have a mobile Internet connection, your cell phone opens up a whole world of games, but don’t overlook the fun you can have with a deck of cards or a travel board game.

1. Crypto Casino Games 

Using digital currencies to play games can be fun and convenient, especially when traveling across international borders. Crypto mobile casinos offer the same table games you can enjoy in physical casinos, but they can be played on PC, laptop, and mobile devices, making them a great option for journeys and while you’re sitting in your hotel room. Crypto writer Nick Pappas says that crypto casinos offer instant withdrawals, which means you can withdraw any winnings you accrue on your travels and have access to the money straight away. Crypto casinos also offer anonymity and privacy, enabling users to play when they are in regions that prohibit online gambling.

2. Mobile Games

They don’t just offer access to the best online casinos: mobile phones are invaluable tools during your travels. They can help you find the way to your hotel, locate the best local restaurants, and offer access to a world of games. Whether you prefer word games, action games, or board games, you can find them in the Google Play store and the Apple store. You might even be able to play games that feature the location you’re visiting. 

3. Card Games

A pack of cards takes up very little room in your bag. And there are thousands of games you can play with those 52 cards. As well as games of chance, you can learn skill games, trick-taking games, bluffing games, and more. There are also dozens of variants of solitaire, so you have something to do while you’re sitting around waiting.

4. Travel Board Games

The world of board games has advanced a lot in the past couple of decades. As well as a much broader selection of games and game types, there is also a fine selection of tiny games, some of which are the size of mint tins or even chewing gum packs. Even if you only have a small pocket’s worth of space, you can pack a few different board games. Like card games, a lot of board games also have solo variants you can play alone.

5. Choose Your Own Adventure Games

To play games like Dungeons and Dragons, all you need is a few dice, a pen, some paper, and your imagination. But, it can be tricky to set up a DnD session with one or two people, and most sessions last hours. Choose your own adventure games that come in the form of books. You typically still need a dice, although you can install dice apps on your phone instead. Some have made their way to mobile, and not only are they played solo but you don’t have to commit a lot of time.

6. Word Games

Boggle and Scrabble are two of the best-known word games, but you don’t have to have a board or book to play word games. One word story is a game where players take turns to add one word to a story. Every player has the chance to take the narrative in a completely new direction. In last letter, first letter, one player starts by choosing a word. The next player has to come up with another word that starts with the last letter of the previous word. You can make this more challenging by choosing a specific topic.

Most people love going on vacation, but all vacations have some downtime. Choose games according to the number of players you have in your party, ensure you have a solo game for time spent alone, and opt for smaller games that will easily pack into your bag, or even your pocket.
