Ways to Play

Personal categories:

While Scattergories comes with a set of pre-defined categories, you can always create your own unique set of categories. This allows you to tailor the game to the interests of your group, making it more engaging and enjoyable.

Add a timer twist:

To make the game more challenging and exciting, add a twist to the timer. For example, you can use an hourglass or set the timer for a shorter time than usual, which will force players to think and write faster.

Play in teams:

Playing in teams can add an element of teamwork and collaboration to the game. You can pair up players or divide the group into teams and award points based on the team's total unique answers.

Use unusual letters:

Instead of using common letters like A or B, try using less common letters like Q or Z. This will make the game more challenging and force players to come up with creative answers.

Make it a themed game:

Choose a specific theme for the game, such as movies or food, and base all the categories around that theme. This can add an extra level of fun and creativity to the game.

Add a prize:

Offer a prize for the winner or winning team. The prize could be something simple like a small trophy or a gift card to a local restaurant. This will motivate players to put in their best effort and make the game more fun for everyone.
