You don't need to spend a lot of money when purchasing your travel games and if you are on a strict budget you can check out second hand stores, yard sales or ask your family & friends if they have any games that you can borrow for your trip.

When selecting what to take...we always recommend that you select and pack three to four different games along with paper and a pencil to keep score. Pack all of your items in one bag to keep things easily organized. Most importantly, dig them out while on your trip and have some fun!
