Group Games E-Book Now Available

When faced with a three-hour motorcoach ride with less than exciting scenery, many group leaders turn to group games to combat their passengers’ boredom. A fun and engaging game can not only pass time, but also bond the participants with a memory that would otherwise have been nonexistent.

That is why The Group Travel Leader has recently released Group Games: Custom-Made Motorcoach Activities E-Book.

“Group games have long been our most popular Web content,” said Eliza Myers, online editor of The Group Travel Leader. “Although we offer many types of games on our website, we wanted an easy way for group leaders to print off our customized games and pass them out as needed on a trip.”

The magazine’s first games-themed e-book focuses on games custom-made for motorcoach travel. For example, the Counting Cows game keeps participants glued to the window to count how many of each type of animal they see on a trip. Similarly, Bus Bingo encourages group members to play a scenery-themed bingo game that can be altered for each trip.

Other included games involve stick horse racing up the aisles of the bus, determining objects hidden in jars and tossing marshmallows. Each game can come with a tempting prize to add a little fun to the competition.

“People love these outside-the-box games because they build camaraderie with other passengers, which can lead to lasting friendships,” said Myers. “That’s what you want on a group tour, because it enhances passengers’ entire travel experience and makes them more likely to book their next tour with your group.”

Group leaders also report enjoying the scenery-themed custom games, since those engage participants in the destination as it goes by.

Each game comes with instructions for the group leader and, if needed, any handouts necessary to play the game. Group leaders can simply print off whichever game they think will fit their next trip from the e-book document.

The e-book is available as a free download for a limited time at
