How to play spring scattergories
Playing spring scattergories is a fantastic way to add a little bit of competitive fun to any holiday party. Making it an ideal choice for spring break, office parties, and spring parties. This game is incredibly simple to play and suitable for all ages, ensuring everyone can join in on the fun. Here’s how you can get started:
- First, print out the Spring Scattergories boards. Each board has a unique spring-themed word at the top, such as ‘grow’, ‘leaf’, ‘bird’, or ‘tree’.
- This party game is great for both small and large groups. Divide the players into teams or play individually, depending on your preference and the number of participants.
- Inform the players that they will use the letters of the word at the top of their board to come up with answers for each category. For instance, if the word is ‘bird’, for each category, their answers must start with one of the letters in ‘bird’.
- Choose a time limit for each round – usually 2 to 5 minutes works well. Players must think of a word that fits each category and starts with one of the letters from the word at the top of their game sheet before the timer runs out.
- Start the timer and let the players fill in their boards. Each player or team will write down their answers in the corresponding sections. Creativity and quick thinking are key!
- Once the time is up, players take turns reading their answers aloud. Points are awarded for the most unique answers – if two players have the same word, neither gets points for that word. Typically, one point is given for each unique answer.
- For added fun, play multiple rounds using the different boards. This adds variety and challenges players to think differently with each round.
- The player or team with the most points after all rounds are completed wins the holiday game.
