Easter is definitely one of the most joyous yearly celebrations. Not only is it a fun holiday when we typically gather with family and friends, but it’s also the commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
If you’re looking for ways to make this event much livelier and bring everyone closer together, know that there are a bunch more games and activities that can make your party so much more memorable, other than the classic Easter egg hunt. This time, we’re talking about hosting your own Easter Scattergories game for all the kids and kids at heart.
How to Play
Scattergories is a battle of wits and creative critical thinking. If you think word games are your strength, then keep on reading to learn or refresh yourself on how this is played.
To start off, prepare a dice or a draw lots system that has most, if not all, of the letters of the alphabet in them. Whether or not you purposefully exclude letters is your choice, but some do so to decrease the game’s difficulty.
The overall mechanics are simple. Provide a word or phrase that answers the chosen category within the given time, and make sure it’s unique so that you don’t end up with the same answers as everyone else. To score a point, the goal is to have a correct, yet one-of-a-kind answer everyone else didn’t give out. This means that the more players there are in the game, the more difficult it is to score a point. As with any game, the player with the most points wins.
