This is a really fun game and so simple that people of almost all ages and abilities can play together. If we have someone that we know will get creamed playing against others, we just team up and make it more even. I find this timer less intrusive that the other one and I think it was a brilliant choice to make it where you can adjust the time limit on it between 1, 2 or 3 minutes. That way if you have a pretty easy to use letter you can stick with two minutes, but if it's a harder one you can set it at three minutes or whatever time limits you find fits.
This is one of our all time favorite games, up there with Cranium and Taboo.
For the construction, 3 stars. The paper answer sheets are thin, and the device that holds your answer sheets next to the category list is... wait for it... a folded piece of cardboard and a thin plastic bar. They could have made the whole thing out of a reasonably durable plastic with hinges instead, but I guess they decided to cut a dollar from the manufacturing process instead. I'd give this game a few months of consistent use until one or more of the folded pieces of cardboard falls into two or more pieces. This is a fairly common complaint.
Overall, though, what you're really buying is a multi-sided die with letters on it, a glorified egg timer, and the category lists. You can make the answer sheets out of typing paper and 10 minutes of word processing, and the lists don't take much abuse, so really it's the special die and maybe the timer that needs to be durable. Fortunately, both seem to be solidly constructed so the "core" elements of scattergories are reasonably durable.
Protip: NO BATTERIES INCLUDED. This made our first game pretty awkward.
I decided to buy it before a family vacation, and it arrived just in time. The only problem is that the included timer does not work, I rated down for durability as the brand new item is non-functioning, but I also didn't try to return it since I was leaving for my trip, and the game of course works just fine with the timer on my cell phone or a kitchen timer. I'd actually prefer that it have an hourglass timer really, that way even if the timer did work I wouldn't have to deal with batteries.
