A car and travel game for above average families


What is CarlSpies?

Time in the car with your kids is supposed to be a treasured moment of special bonding for a family... and then all hell breaks loose. A trip to Grandma's, car pooling for swim team, or simply running errands across town quickly becomes an agonizing car ride comprised of sibling-initiated torture and "He won't stop looking at me!" or other vague parent-confounding confrontations. 

Fortunately, a hard-working team of folks in Nashville created CarlSpies. It's above-averageness that doesn't require batteries or the internet, and isn't another app.

CarlSpies is a car and travel card game for above average families that combines eye-spy with unexpected game mechanics like Swipe and Do Over.  It requires a keen eye, quick wit, and a willingness to be slightly ruthless to other players in order to win. Ya know, like all other awesome family games that kids love to play.

We're certain that your kids will literally thank you for giving them an alternative to playing on their electronics for entertainment!
