License Game

License Game is one of the fun travel games for kids and addition games.

Players want to find the numbers 1 to 20, in order, on license plates traveling on the road.

This is great to play on long trips as it will keep the kids occupied with something fun to do.


2 or more players
Ages: 4 and up


One digit numbers and 2 digit numbers are good, and players can add up numbers to get a number they need as long as the numbers are beside each other.

Example, a player spots a license plate with numbers 258 beside each other.

A player can use the numbers 2, 5 and 8, or he can add all 3 numbers up for the number 15.

Or, he sees a plate with 295 on it. He won't need "29" as that is above the highest number "20" that is used in the game.

So his best bet would be to add 2 + 9 + 5 up for a total of 16.

Players shout out the numbers they need when they see them on a passing plate, adding the numbers if they need those to make a number.

Only one player can use a license plate, and only one number per plate is allowed.

If kids are playing against each other, the first person to reach 20 wins.

If not playing for a winner, players take turns finding the number they need on their turn. Numbers should be given in order from 1 to 20.

For older kids or on longer car trips, this can be played up to 50 or even 100.

If it's too hard to spot the numbers on a plate, try using road signs or signs or the sides or tops of buildings.

Parents can join in, too, to test how good their math skills are!
