Observation games to play in the car can help pass the time - or can lead to screams of “unfair“ if one person is clearly more likely to win than the other.
Here is a game I played with my passenger on the motorway the other day - and we couldn’t decide whether it was a “fair” game or not. Can you help ?
I scored a point every time the
car in front had its numbers in
ascending order of size. So G259RAL
scored me a point, as did R17KLK , and I thought V
3 FTS should be counted as well, as it certainly wasn’t out
of order . However D566HGW didn’t do it for me, sadly, and neither did
My sworn enemy next to me scored points every time the car in front had its group of 3 letters in correct alphabetical order. So T253ALP was good for her, as well as T49RTX, but, again, K468DYY wasn’t allowed. Some number plates, like A469RYZ scored us a point each.
What we want to know is : is this a fair game that we can continue to play in the future, or is one person definitely more likely to win in the long run ?
