Car cricket! Maybe not a thing in the UK, too much traffic.

On long car journeys, score 1 run for a car, three for a van, four for a truck and six for an articulated truck. Motorbikes are wickets. Hours of fun, until the Mongrel Mob come riding through all at once, and you suffer a batting collapse.

Our Eddie Stobart game is just shouting ‘Eddie!’ as loud as you can when you see one but sort of in the accent of posh strict father.
