The best travel board, card & dice games for on the road 🧳 2022

Your vacation is coming up and you have only little space in your luggage? We have picked out the best travel games for you. We have paid special attention to the fact that the games are still a lot of fun despite their low space consumption. Some of these card & board games can even be played in the car, train or plane.

Professional tip: Many games can be packed smaller because the packaging usually contains a lot of air. We use for example a freezer bag with zipper and leave out unnecessary things. In Carcassonne or Dixit, for example, we use the counting board and keep track of the score. In Dominion, for example, you can select only the popular cards, take only 28 copper cards, and then stack all the cards on top of each other.

Often you can also repack several games into one pack and save some space.

In any case, you should pack a double set of normal playing cards with 54 cards - there are thousands of game variations here.
