    Welcome to this brand new edition of Scattegories!!! I'm your new host for this game and hopefully we'll have some fun!

    The basic premise of the game is that players are given a list of twelve categories and a letter. Players then have to write down something in that category that starts with the chosen letter. Players get a point for each correct answer, but if they have the same thing as someone else, neither gets a point for that category.
    Example:

    The letter is P: The categories are Food and Actor

    Player one:
    Food: Pie
    Actor: Peter Boyles

    Player two:
    Food: Pizza
    Actor: Peter Boyles

    Both players get a point for a different answer for food, but neither gets a point for having the same answer for actor.

    A few simple rules:

    • The answers have to be able to be easily looked up for the host: If I can't find it anywhere on the Internet, the player will lose a point
    • Names can be first or last names so long as the first letter of one of them has the letter that the host selected. Titles or nicknames cannot count unless that they are their own category (Example: Prince Harry cannot be used for 'p')
    • Players have 48 hours to PM their answers. I'll then post the answers and count up the points.
    • Late lists will not count! Any lists that come in after the 48 hour period will not be allowed and the player will recieve no points at all for that round.
    • All answers for all categories must be sent in one PM for the round. Partial lists will not count and you can't send in corrections after the lists are PM'd.
    The game will lasts three rounds and the winner will recieve 48 hours of nice shiny colors!

    Are you ready to play?

    On the change of categories, I've been playing Scats through more than one host and they've always kept the same categories at least for the set of 3 rounds; never heard anyone ask to change, although I have had some rounds where one or two thingies were hard to puzzle out, but that's what search engies and wiki is for [face_laugh] If I left out child actor in the list above for B: Justine Bateman.
