Specifics
♥ Each round of Scattergories will last for 3 months
♥ We will be using the real dice for this...I will roll the dice in the presence of one of my family members so that they see what I rolled (so no one can say I cheated :D)
♥ For this first round I will start with categories that are easy and basic~ but as the rounds continue the categories will be getting harder. I also will use real categories from the Scattergories game cards.
♥ You don't have to do all categories
♥ One book per category
