Game of Scattergories Categories
If your family enjoys the original games of Scattergories, check out this version for a new twist on an old favorite. There are 125 double-sided cards included. Each side of the cards features a word spelled out vertically down the card in capital letters. One player chooses a card and reads the word out loud, and all of the players copy the word on their pad of paper, vertically, like an acrostic. A clue along the side of the card is then read to explain the category. For example, the card might read CAMPING TRIP, with the clue "Things you could take with you or see on a camping trip." Or AMASS THINGS "things people collect." Or SPEAK IT "languages." Then the 2-minute timer is turned and all of the players race to think of things that fit that category, one for each letter in the word(s). For CAMPING TRIP, players may write words like C-ooler, A-nimals, M-arshmallows, P-oncho, etc. When the time runs out, players read their words out loud and score points for any of their words that no one else wrote. This encourages players to try and think of creative answers, but with a two-minute time limit you can't spare much time to think! The game says 2-4 players, but you could easily play with more either individually or in teams. - Melissa
