by Scattergories LOVER
November 10, 2007

Scattergories is an ah-mazing game that I am so happy was invented. It is a game which all family members will love and enjoy. It tests your common knowledge, vocabulary, and the fun and talkative side of you. I love the variety of categories from Food to Gemstones. Trying to create or think of a word that fits into both the right letter and right category makes your brain stir, which I LOVE. Everyone must have scattergories!

Think under pressure
January 18, 2003

Scattergories is a game I can get family members to play-- and my family generally doesn't like games! It's basically an exercise in thinking fast under pressure and using your storehouse of vocabulary and knowledge. With twelve lists and 20 different letters, there's a lot of variation to gameplay. It would be very simple to invent your own category lists to play with for variety's sake, though I've never played this game enough to reach the point.

A lot of Fun!

The game is great with friends and almost anybody! One idea about only 12 cards is to play them with a different letter. Make sure you don't play the same letter with the same card when you still remember answers to that letter. Just roll the die again. Scattergories challenges your thinking skills, and puts them to the timer!
