Scattergories

The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches the letter and the category.


The object of this challenge is the same sort of thing as the board game. We give you a list of 12 categories/words and a letter and you find items that fit those categories in your books. The goal is to find all 12 items. You may use words more than once but the sentences must be different. You may use a book to fulfill as many categories as it fits (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!)

The first 6 categories will stay the same, the second 6 will be announced each month.


Please remember to add a link to the book, the author and give the date you finished reading it.
You also need to post the sentence and page/loc# for items 7-12.

Susan A | 200 comments Pro sports teams

Are we looking for the name of a sport from this list, like baseball, basketball etc, or are we looking for the name of a specific team, as in Philadelphia Phillies?

If it is the latter, is just Phillies okay? And, what about for more generic team names like The Cowboys -- Is the word cowboys - not a reference to the team, okay?

August 2020 Scattergories
Duration:
8/1/2020 - 8/31/2020

Progress: 0 out of 12

The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches the letter and the category.

The object of this challenge is the same sort of thing as the board game. We give you a list of 12 categories/words and a letter and you find items that fit those categories in your books. The goal is to find all 12 items. You may use words more than once but the sentences must be different. You may use a book to fulfill as many categories as it fits (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!)

The first 6 categories will stay the same, the second 6 will be announced each month.

Please remember to add a link to the book, the author and give the date you finished reading it.
You also need to post the sentence and page/loc# for items 7-12.
