Rules for Scattergories:

Scattergories is a word game where you roll a giant dice with letters on each side. Then, you fill out a list with random categories like actors, colors or things you find in a zoo. Each answer needs to start with the designated letter. You get a point for each original answer. If someone else has the same word as you, neither of you gets the point. Prepare to argue about who counts as a celebrity and how creative you can get with the names of colors.

Some other rules to abide by:

  • No adding an adjective before a word to make it work with the letter (e.g., Blue Toyota for “cars that start with B”).
  • No repeating words (e.g., no using orange for “colors that start with O” and “fruit that starts with O”).
  • Be nice and have fun. This is just a rule for living life.
