Think road trip with kids, and a desire NOT to blow out a data plan.

So, in the minivan, kids have tablets and dad has a tablet.

Would like to setup a network between the 4 tablets, wherein dad could start a movie and the other tablets could watch it - with dad's tablet being the control.

or (another scenario)

Launch a multiplayer game of some nature on dad's tablet, and allow the kids to jump in and play.

Is such a thing possible, or no? Seems to me these sophisticated devices should be able to operate in such a way WITHOUT having to ping the internet, or hit a data plan.

Any help finding a solution would be welcome.
Thank you for your efforts.
