Scattergories, published in 1988 by Milton Bradley, is a word game suitable for party settings. It originated from a folk game called Guggenheim?. In 1993, Reg Grundy adapted it for NBC-TV, with Dick Clark as host.

The object of Scattergories is for players to fill out category lists with answers that begin with the same letter. That letter is selected by one player, who rolls a 20-sided letter die. A player scores points if no other player's answers match his own.

The game is played in rounds. After three rounds, the player with the most points is the winner.
