Description:
This cardboard Auto Bingo game, still in its original packaging, showcases sights travelers might drive by during road trips including barns, motels, and public payphones. To play, passengers would look for the images on their game boards and close the door of each picture they saw until getting five in a row. Designed to spark interest on long rides, Travel Bingo is considered a classic car game alongside 20 Questions, I Spy, and searching for out-of-state license plates.
