What are scattergories?

Scattergories is a super fun and fast-paced word game that will test your creativity and quick thinking.

The game consists of a list of categories, like “picnic item,” “country to visit,” or “ice cream flavor.” Players then have a limited amount of time to come up with words that start with a specific letter and fit those categories.

The catch is that your answers must be unique. You score points for each word that no one else at the table has thought of. So, you’ve got to rack your brain for less common words while the timer is ticking down!

It’s perfect for all ages and a fantastic way to spend quality time with friends and family. Whether you’re having a game night, hanging out at a party, or simply looking to add some excitement to a gathering, Scattergories is the go-to game for endless laughter and friendly competition.

How to play the game scattergories?

If you are not familiar with the game scattergories, the object of the game is to fill out a category list with answers that begin with the same letter. You score bonus points if no one else has the same answer.

The winner of course is the one with the most points.

The official game comes with a 20-sided die with different letters on it. This letter is the first letter of each of your answers on the category list.

If you don’t have the game Scatergories we have included 4 different printable boards for you to play with. Print out one for each family member and have so much fun seeing what answers you come up with.

You also don’t need the 20-sided die as we have included the letters at the top of each of the boards.

How to play scattergories with younger kids

If you are playing scattergories with younger children you will need to allow more time, in fact, we don’t have a timer when we play anyway.

Why not work in teams? Pair a younger child with an older sibling, or parent.

If the children can’t think of an answer beginning with the letter, why not let them find a word that has that letter in it instead?
