imageI’ll be finishing up moving out of my old apartment today, but I did want to leave you with my new favorite road trip game. It’s called Phil Collins Ruined Genesis: The Game.

The rules:

You must be taking a trip by car longer of at least 90 minutes or longer. You must listen to the radio the entire time.

You must start scanning stations from the beginning of your trip. If you find a song you’d like to listen to, you may at most listen through to the end of that song and the end of the next song, should you so desire. After that, you must resume scanning. If the song is followed by a commercial break, you must resume scanning. If you hear a talk program you’d like to listen to, you may listen until either a topic change or a commercial break.

The game:

In order to free yourself from the scanning, you must (and most likely will) find a Genesis song some time during your travel. If you hear one, you must immediately stop and listen through to the end of said song, and the end of the next one, because you just happened on a quality radio station. After that, you’re freed of your Genesis-defined confines.

Yeah, I hate road trips.
