How to Play Halloween Scattergories?
We don’t tend to follow the rules when we play any games, so we don’t set a timer for scattergories either. We just print them out and play! But if you were doing it properly you would set a 2-minute timer.
Print out the same sheet for as many people as you have got at the table. Make sure everyone has a pen and you are ready to play. These will print out on one sheet of paper for each word, so there is enough room for the kids to write on.
The aim of the game is to find unique Halloween words to add to the scattergories board. The reason they have to be unique is that if someone else has the word neither of you gets any points.
So for C I probably wouldn’t use the word candy cane, and for Halloween movies using Halloween for H probably won’t get you any points, as they are the most common words. If you are playing with younger children though, let them find the easy words!
This is a great way to play Scattergories if you don’t have the original game (but I highly recommend getting the original as it’s awesome!).
