How To Play Paradise Ride: Travel Tales

The aim of the game is to share and relive your epic travel memories with a unique prompt on each card. Revisit all your favourite places and memories with the wildest story time game for backpackers and travellers! 

The Rules Are Simple

  1. Choose your adventure 
  2. Draw a card & Read it out loud
  3. Tell your tale & Hear the legends unfold


Group Tour 

We all answer the same game card with our epic stories. No tale goes unanswered! 

We love this one for smaller groups up to 6 people because it gives everyone a chance to answer the same question and it gives people a little time to process the card question. It is also the best way to savour the game and the questions.

Solo Expedition

We all answer a unique card and the next move goes to the next explorer. A fav amongst medium and larger groups!

We recommend this style to larger groups because it keeps the game moving a little faster and keeps the epic stories rolling! Love this for larger groups that need a little bit more structure, because let's face it travel stories can get out of control!

Battle of Backpackers 

We all battle it out on the game cards and the group votes on their favourite travel story. The winner keeps the card at the end of the round and the person that has won the most cards when the game is over wins.  A fav amongst the experienced and brag happy. This can be the most epic, favourite, random or crazy story.

This gameplay is best played when everyone in the group has a lot of travel and backpacking experience. An epic battle amongst humble explorers. We love this gameplay for small and medium size groups to keep the stories rolling and voting at a nice pace. 

Optional Aid: The Guide

If you have a rowdy group or more than 8 travellers by the table you can option to choose a person amongst you that guides you through Travel Tales. This person keeps track of the conversations and makes sure that no-one wanders off.
