Scattergories - a game of categories!

Advantagesgood fun game won't be outdated

Disadvantagesnone

"...play on words - for scattergories think categories! The aim of the game is to think up original ideas in many varied categories all depending on a starting letter.

So we tend to scout charity shops where we've been able to pick up as-new games for as little as £4, which is what this cost from the PDSA shop last week. I was pleased to find it as I've played in the past and we enjoy word games. After ensuring everything was included before we left the shop, we went home to ..." Read review
