Did You Know?
A TV game show of the same name was aired by NBC Daytime in 1993, and it was the penultimate game show to be produced by NBC.
Scattergories, as the name suggests, is a party game that involves listing out things that fall in the given categories. An impressive technique to improve your vocabulary and still have a little fun, Scattergories also tests your knowledge about various subjects.

Originally, the game was developed by Hasbro; however, to add a little twist, this game can be customized by tweaking the rules according to the players' preferences. It comes with 20-faced die with alphabets on each face. Each list typically has 12 categories, and you have to write the thing asked in the category question, starting with the letter on the die. If you don't have a die, you can use a bag containing alphabets, and pick one from the bag every time.

While it is not necessary to have a theme-based category question, you could pick one randomly, we've provided some scattergories based of various themes.

The game can be modified and adapted in funny ways, as you please. For adults, you could get a little bit naughty and try innovative lists. You could also try Bible-based lists, or something related to history, which will help you teach kids about your culture and religion. Funny ones, of course, are just to pass away time. Whatever the categories, they are sure to exercise your gray cells.
