The Scattergories game is the fast-thinking game of words and categories.
Players roll the letter dice, flip the sand timer, and race against the clock to come up with answers to each category on the category list. Score points for writing down answers that no one else did.
For example, if the die turns up the letter S, players start the timer and as quickly as possible, write down the answers to things listed on the card such as “things you plug in”, “items in vending machine,” or “song titles” -each beginning with the letter S. When time is up, players compare answers and each unique answer earns a point. The player with the highest score at the end of each round is the winner.
The more creative the answers, the more points scored.
