What are scattergories?

Scattergories is a really simple yet fun word game that can be played with both children and adults, therefore makes a great family game.

Each game starts with the same letter and you have to answer the questions (as quickly as possible) that begin with that letter.

The aim is to find an answer that no one else has, so you get bonus points!

Scattergories Rules

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.

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

Tips for playing scattergories with younger players

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?

Have fun with winter themed board games too!
