Board Game Collection: Scatergories

A guide to information about the University of Idaho's board game collection and the the games that are a part of it


Scattergories BoxScattergories is a fast thinking game based on categories and words. So, get ready to roll the die, flip the sand timer, and think of the answers of each category on the category list. The players of this card game race against the timer as they write down answers such as things in a musical group, a vegetable, a reason to have a party, and items found in a bakery- each beginning with a letter C. The best part is you score points for writing down things no one else did. The more creative your answers, the more points you score in Scattergories.
