That said, certain occasions can call for a touch more… design inspiration… if you will.

You could even have a card at each place setting at the dinner table if you wanted to!

What Is Scattergories?

Scattergories is a party-based category game created by the Parker Brothers. Scattergories has been a staple game night choice since the 1988.

This fun fast paced game requires at least 2 players.

The objective is to score points by uniquely naming objects that fit the categories in a timed setting.

You have to be creative with your answers because they are based off of the initial letters.

For instance, you can have a fruit category and must name fruit that starts with the corresponding letter.

However, the key is that you cannot have duplicate answers as other players!

Nowadays, there’s a Scattergories app or Scattergories mobile. But we love playing on good ole fashion paper.

Rules of Scattergories Game

1 — Everyone gets a set of four category cards. In this case, we created a scattergories lists for one of each season.

2 — Set a timer for 4 minutes for each player to have time to fill it a word that relates to one of the seasons that starts with each letter in the alphabet. (This is longer than the usual game since there are so many letters.)

3 — Once the timer is up, read through each letter and tally up a point for every answer that someone has written down that fits the theme. However, the points you score and answer cannot be duplicate of another player.

4 — Whoever answers the most points wins!

    • Hi Laura! These cards were gifted and we have no idea where they were purchased from! Sorry that we couldn’t be any help but it looks like something from Urban Outfitters or even Amazon?
