Christmas Scattergories Game

Are you looking for a great way to have fun with loved ones this holiday season? If so, keep the good times going with Christmas Scattergories.

The purpose of the game is to roll a die, choose a category, and then come up with a list of different words that fit within that category and start with the specific letter you got when you rolled the die.

It might sound easy, but it is a lot more challenging than people tend to realize until they start playing, and that is what makes it so much fun. 

With Christmas Scattergories, you are following the same concept, but with holiday-themed categories and words. It is a simple game that is easy to play.

Both children and adults can get involved in the Christmas Scattergories shenanigans. 

Good Categories to Consider Using When Playing Christmas Scattergories

When sticking with the Christmas theme, there are a lot of great categories to consider using.

Some of these categories include presents given as gifts during the holiday season, types of food commonly served at the dinner table on Christmas Day, and must-have items for any Christmas party. 

These are just three of the many categories you can come up with when playing Christmas Scattergories with loved ones.

There is nothing wrong with having a little friendly competition between yourself and your loved ones. You might want to make the game even more exciting by offering a prize to the person who comes up with the most words by the end of each round.

Rules of the game: Fill in the blanks with words that begin with each letter. When time is up, compare your answers with the group. The person with the most unique words at the end of rounds wins!
