To play the Scattergories game, pick a list from the category cards and roll the 20-sided letter die to determine which letter each answer will begin with. 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 “‘hings 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!

One thing that makes the Scattergories game different from other games is the 20-sided die, which provides endless fun for each round. With more than 190 categories and 20 letters on the die, there are more than 3,500 category combinations! So, the Scattergories game is exciting to play over and over again. Players try to make their answers unique and think of things that will be different from everyone else’s so that they will earn more points.

The Scattergories game includes a 3-minute sand timer so players have to be creative and clever within that span of time. Roll the letter C? Quickly come up with a musical group, a vegetable, and reasons to have a party. Write down only 1 answer for each category. Which would be a better answer for the vegetable carrot or cauliflower? Choose wisely! Only one-of-a-kind answers score. The game includes 6 individual folders to keep all of the category and answer sheets together, and to deter prying eyes.
