Autumn and Halloween Scattergories Printable

I've been feelin' crafty again (that is, crafty on my computer) and I've created some more Halloween and Autumn free printables for you!  This time it's a printable Scattergories game.  If you have never played Scattergories, you definitely should try it.  It's such a fun group game and an easy ice breaker at a party.  The Halloween Scattergories printable and the Autumn Scattergories printable will also work well for a school party or even just a family get-together.  You'll find the free printable link under each image.  Happy Halloween my blissful friends!

My kidlets LOVE playing Scattergories (they can be so competitive in games!)  There are actually 2 ways you can play it.  The above Halloween Scattergories game is played as follows:



How to play Scattergories (version one):

1. Pick a letter of the alphabet (you can roll a alphabet dice or draw out of a hat)

2. Set a timer for 1 minute

3. When the timer starts, players see how many categories they can fill up by thinking of answers that start with the chosen letter.  When the time is up, all players quit writing.  Then they go around the group, answering out loud what they got for each category.

4.  The player with the most answers wins the round.  There is 1 point per answer unless they come up with a viable answer that has two words that starts with that letter.  For example, if the letter was 'W' and the answer was "Wicked Witch" that would count for 2 points.  However, if it is something that doesn't necessarily go together such as "Wimpy Witch" then they would only get 1 point.

5.  Whether or not an answer is right or viable depends on the group you are playing with.  If something doesn't seem to fit the category or subject then the group can dispute it and vote on whether or not that person's answer deserves a point.

The above image is the Autumn Scattergories printable.  This is a more simple way to play and good for all ages.  Here is how you play this version:



How to play Scattergories (version two):

1.  Set a timer for 1 minute.  Have players come up with an answer that starts with each specific letter.  For younger kids, you may want to skip the timer and just let them fill it in.

2.  Go around the group and have each person tell what they got for letter A.  Then continue with letter B and so forth.

3.   The player with the most answers wins the round.  There is 1 point per answer unless they come up with a viable answer that has two words that starts with that letter.  For example, if the letter was 'W' and the answer was "Wicked Witch" that would count for 2 points.  However, if it is something that doesn't necessarily go together such as "Wimpy Witch" then they would only get 1 point.

4.  As with the other version, the group can decide if an answer is off-topic or not.  The group can vote as needed.  With younger players, you may want to accept any answer they give.

Happy Autumn!
