The Scattergories game {available here and here!} is a classic game that asks players to answer various questions, but the trick is – those answers must all begin with a certain letter!  The original game already requires creativity in your answers but in our version get ready to make those clever answers match your spouse!

How To Play the Spouse Scattergories Game

Spouse Scattergories Game Letters

Start by selecting a letter! Using the printables provided, cut out each letter of the alphabet. I folded mine up and placed them in a simple bowl.

The letter that is selected will be the first letter used in each of your answers!

 Spouse Scattergories Category Cards

Select one of the four Scattergories categories to use. Each category card has 12 unique questions that all refer to your spouse!

Set the Scattergories timer for 3 minutes (or less for more of a challenge!). Then, using the answer sheets, each spouse will secretly write down a word to fit the category question. Remember: all answers must begin with the chosen letter!

Spouse Scattergories Game Questions

For example: What is one word to describe your spouse’s breath in the morning?

Letter: S

Options could include: sensational, sour, or sweet – so many choices! For the record, I said my husband’s was sexy and he answered that mine was spicy. Spicy?! We had a good laugh over that! I would have preferred  sexy . . .

When the timer runs out, compare your answers.  A player receives a point for each word they write down that starts with the chosen letter. No points are received if you both write down the same word. Double points are received if you have a double letter such as Super Spicy!

Finally, determine a winner of your Scattergories game round 1 and play again by choosing a new letter and/or a new category card!

  1. I love this idea!! Scattergories is one of my favorites, and this makes it so much more personal! I can’t wait to add this to our date night agenda!

  2. Hello! Question, my hubby and I are about to play this but we are a little confused. How are we supposed to make our answers match when it’s asking us questions about each other, lol? And how do you determine a winner if the only answers that count are the ones that are matching? Thanks! XOXO

    1. I am so glad that you found this game to play with your spouse! I hope you had so much fun! In the game of Scattergories you technically get a point if your answer is different than the answer of your opponent. Your goal is to be creative in your answers so that you don’t have the same answer. As I wrote in the post: No points are received if you both write down the same word. Even though you are playing with two players, you will find that there may be many categories that your spouse can’t come up with a word and therefore your points are not likely to remain equal throughout the game. I hope this helps and I hope you have a blast playing!

  3. Great idea! I was thinking of using this as part of a wedding gift of date nights and thought of laminating the answer sheets and including dry erase markers with it. Of course while I’m at it, sounds like a great date night for my game loving husband and I. Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas! 🙂

  4. Played this last night for our game date night! Hubby was a little skeptical when this was my pick… but he kept asking to do more rounds! Haha we loved it. SUPER fun idea Sarina!

  5. So, I’m planning to try this tonight, but just a quick question. The answers are not supposed to be true, right? Otherwise it would be an impossible game to play using one letter?

    1. Barbara – We had a lot of fun with our answers. We aimed to try to make the answers as true as possible but when it came down to it we put (almost) anything down to earn the point! Have fun!

  6. We’ll be having a “Date Night” for married couples this 13 Feb. and I would like to use this on our dating activity. May I know how to download the file? Thanks?

    1. That sounds like a really fun idea! I am sure it will be a blast! To download it simply go to the bottom of the post where it says, “Click to Download our Spouse Scattergories Game” and it will start downloading to your computer! Good luck and enjoy!

    1. This game can easily be played with a group! You would actually play the same way if you played with two people or 10! Just make sure that each person playing can see the question card and has something to write with and on. When sharing your answers go around the circle and have each person share their answers and tally their scores!
