Scattergories is the crowd-pleasing, fast-thinking game from Parker Brothers. Roll the die and you have just seconds to come up with a band name, vegetable, shoe style and more, all beginning with the right letter. But be creative! If another player matches your answer, you get 0 points. With more than 190 categories and 20 letters the combinations and fun are endless. Game includes 6 folders, 48 category cards, 1 answer pad, 6 pencils, 20-sided die, 6 plastic cup strips, timer, die rolling board and instructions.
Scattergories is a fast-paced word game that's a real crowd pleaser. Each player takes a category list with 12 categories--such as vegetable, state, president, things you throw away--and must write down the name of one item that fits into each category. Sounds easy enough, but each item has to begin with a specific letter that is determined when the 20-sided die is rolled. For instance, you roll the letter "R." Your answer list for the above categories might look something like this: rutabaga, Rhode Island, Roosevelt, rubbish, etc. You have to think fast, because a round lasts only 3 minutes! Players score points for each unique answer. --Alison GolderSee all Product description

This is an oldie, but a goodie. It's a little on the expensive side, so I would recommend getting it used.
Firstly, there is a lack of instruction. Only one very scant piece of paper is provided. If you've never played the game, it takes a few moments to realize how it all works. That shouldn't be an issue. Board games should be playable out of the box, especially one this simple.
Secondly, the construction of the competition boards (hinged pieces of cardboard which writing clamps snap into) are a bit hard to link to the plastic clamps. My friend broke two simply trying to assemble the game. Also, clamps grip paper a bit loosely.
These are minor, nitpicky issues. The game itself is marvelous, great for both the party crowd and the intellectual type. If Milton Bradley paid a bit more attention to this game's presentation, it'd be perfect.
