Are You Ready To Play The Game?


 Autumn and winter are perfect to play board games, aren't they?! If you are looking for a creative and exciting board game for you and your fabulous friends, or a gift for a game board lovers put Scattergories on your list.

 Watching movies together while munching popcorn is great. However it can get a little bit repetitive (its not every week there is the Hunger Games premiere! Soooo excited!). My friend recommended Scattergories straight after my confession that I love to play Scrabble (Yes, I am one of those word obsessed people).

He was so right! From the first game I knew that this fast paced game is going to be with me for longer than just one night! 


Scattergories can help to improve your vocabulary and if you are really confident… Why not to spice it up a bit and have a bet with your other half, the person with less points cooks something delicious for dinner? Or if you have friends around why not to play who will have to wash dishes (if you and your friends are close)?    


Think quickly!



I have had Scattergories for some time now and the has box survived a 12 hour trip from Boston to Aberdeen, so I think we can assume that box will last a long time. 

What is in the box? 



Game comes with:



 Die

It has 26 sides each with a single letter and you start all your answer from whatever letter comes up!



Scattergories Cards

The variety is incredible from a boy’s name, TV Shows, fruits, musical instruments, celebrities, and leisure activities to bad habits. 

Sheets for your creative answers

Easy, the only thing you need to have and is not supplied is pen or pencil! I really like when games do not require any extra expenses and I can use it straightaway. If you get it as a gift for someone for Christmas or birthday there is a big chance that you will be able to play it the same day!


4 Clipboards with instructions

I love the fact that every player is able to read the instructions at the same time! It would be great if there were an extra two added just in case there is a bigger gathering or if one of players accidentally split coffee (ok, we both know I meant mulled wine but shhhh...) over it. 


Timer

It is great that you are rewarded with double points for creative answers. If there is a disagreement about any of the answers you can vote and the majority vote wins. (If you are in relationship and your partner is a sore loser, you know who you are, a reconsideration of a vote might be recommended)

  2. Ahh, I love a game of Scattegories! It's such an easy game to replicate without the kit too (just some paper, pens and imagination) -- it used to come in very handy as a time-filler in my Youth Work days! :)

    1. I actually remember playing with my family game that is called "Countries, Cities". Instead of dice you would just say alphabet in your mind, silently and other person says stop.

      I would love to connect with you on Twitter and Instagram, drop me a line so I can follow back. Have a lovely day, Iga xxx
