Usually when car enthusiasts see a car that interest them, either on the road or parked somewhere, they would take a moment to try and guess what make and model the car is. This might be a little weird for normal people but that is just what a car enthusiast loves to do.

For those car enthusiasts who also love board games, there is a similar car guessing game which they can enjoy with family and friends.

The board game is known as Carnology and the main point of the game is to test your knowledge of cars. There are over 500 picture cards of cars that date from the 1900s till today and to advance through, you will have to guess what make and model it is.

The board game covers nine different types of car categories and it comprises of six different types of metal car tokens (ranging from a Volkswagen Bus to a Lamborghini Countach), a colourful playing board, 525 picture cards and a die.

The board game was created by John Cupit. He is a creative designer who has worked with various products including automobiles. He was inspired to create the game by childhood road trips he had with his father and guessing cars during those times.

The board game can prove quite a challenge for some as there is a category where players have to guess a car only by a picture of headlights, front grille and other parts. But if you could identify a 1970s sports car and differentiate a split window VW Bus with a full windscreen model, then you could do really well in this game.
