Main Question or Discussion Point
Does anyone know of any good number games or thinking games (i.e. tic-tac-toe) to kill time when you're bored? Something that doesn't even require a pen and paper if possible...
We had a large family (9 people) when I was younger, so we'd play 'sevens' on long road trips. Each person counts in turn unless the number is a multiple of 7 or ends in 7, in which the case the player has to clap. We could play that for hours. At least until you reach the 7000's.Does anyone know of any good number games or thinking games (i.e. tic-tac-toe) to kill time when you're bored?

Answer below:With nothing to do but talk, I usually enjoy the "What happened" type stories.
"Every weekday, a man gets in the elevator on the 20th floor, rides it to the ground floor, exits, and goes to work. At night, he comes home, gets in the elevator, but gets off at the 15th floor and walks up the remaining five floors to his apartment. Why?"
The idea is to have the other person ask yes/no questions to narrow the possibilities:
"Was the elevator in good working order"? Yes.
"Did the man make any stops on his way from the 15th to the 20th floor?" No.
"Did anyone else who used the elevator do this?" No.
"Was the man sane?" Yes.
