VALENTINE’S DAY PRINTABLE TIPS AND QUESTIONS
If you’ve never played Valentine’s Day Scattergories, don’t worry! Below are some common questions and helpful tips.
Hopefully, this will answer any questions you may have. If not, feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll answer the best I can.
WHAT KIND OF PAPER SHOULD I USE TO PRINT THIS VALENTINE’S DAY SCATTERGORIES GAME?
You can print the Valentine’s Day Scattergoires game using regular paper or cardstock paper with color ink. In my opinion, regular paper is the best because you will throw out this game once the sheet has been used by a participant.
HOW DO YOU PLAY THE GAME VALENTINE’S DAY SCATTERGORIES?
This Scattergories game contains four rounds that you can earn points for towards winning the overall game. To begin, you start with the first column, L, for Love.
Set a timer for whatever amount of time you chose, and have each player write down something for each category that begins with the letter L. Once the timer runs out, you add up the points.
To get a point, you must have a unique answer for each category. For example, something red, one answer could be lips.
Take turns reading the answers out loud. Next, cross out any matching answers that were said aloud.
You will score a point only for original answers that no one else has. The person with the most original answers wins the round.
That round is complete, now start the next round by doing it for the letter, O. If the word happens to have double letters, like “liquid lipstick” for example the letter L, you can award two points.
If you want to make the game easier you can award points for any answers that start with the letter instead of only giving points for unique answers.
HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU NEED TO PLAY VALENTINE’S DAY SCATTERGORIES?
You can play Valentine’s Day Scattergories by yourself or with a group of people. You can add as many people as you want and keep going through the categories and letters.
This game requires a lot of concentration to come up with the answers. Whether you do it by yourself or with a group you’ll have lots of fun.
CAN I REUSE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY SCATTERGORIES GAME?
You cannot reuse the sheets that participants have already used. I recommend saving this PDF Valentine’s Game to a file on your computer, Printable Holiday Games, and reprinting the sheets every time you would like to play.
This would be a great holiday game to turn into an annual Valentine’s Day family tradition. This game will always be fun to play no matter what age you are.
