Right off the top of your head, can you name a sport, an ice cream flavor, and something in a pet shop, all beginning with the letter B? The trick is to take on 12 categories in 3 minutes or less and not match anyone else's answers! So be creative and seek the unique before the timer runs out. Bungee jumping may score better than baseball, boysenberry better than black cherry. With more than 190 categories and 20 letters on the die, no game is ever the same. For crowd-pleasing, fast-thinking fun, the choice is SCATTERGORIES! Gather up some friendsÉ readyÉ rollÉ write! Seek the unique and write words that no one else has to score big! Check out the updated cards with fresh categories to take on!
4 Folders, 4 Clip Strips, 4 Answer Pad, 20-sided die, 48 Category Cards, 1 timer, Die –rolling board, 4 Pencils, instructions.

If you're happy with a new version, I advise saving money by buying from one of the prime sellers because this seller will send you the new version anyway - unless this was an honest mistake. It says in the product description that there's a 3-speed timer when evidently there isn't; there's a plastic sand timer. Also, the product description says you'll need batteries, but there's nothing in the new version that requires batteries. Again, this is misleading.
I'm disappointed and now concerned that I'll have to pay postage to have this returned.
it's unlike other board games in that there is no board! It also doesn't cause many arguments are there are no right/wrong answers really - just the same answers as other people. Also - it's a good game to play if you want a nice chilled out and quiet night as you set the timer and then sit and think of things whilst you wait for the timer to tick down - therefore, you get a little peace and quiet too.
I love playing, there are many variations in the game too so you won't run out of cards any time soon like you can in things like Trivial Pursuit etc.
Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for something a little out of the ordinary.
1) It's genuinely funny. The time pressure means you're guaranteed some hilarious answers.
2) It's unpredictable. With a lot of games you know who is going to win before you start, or they rely on a dice to create the uncertainty. Scattergories is a level playing field, as creativity can overcome vocabulary.
3) It's inclusive. Unlike Trivial Pursuit, there's no waiting around as everybody plays at the same time.
4) It doesn't last for days.
In summary, unless you are illiterate, you will love Scattergories.
