Sometimes throwing parties can include friends and family that you don’t particularly see that often or know that well. One great way to get individuals from all walks of life having fun with one another is to play games.
Today, I’m excited to share with you this free printable Father’s Day scattergories game. It is a great activity to play that will ensure all of your guests enjoy themselves while also breaking the ice.

How do you play scattergories?
At the top of the page, you will see eight different Father’s Day themed categories. You will have to come up with a word for each category that begins with each letter of the word BEST.
Here’s an example to get you started. One of the categories is “food.” So for the letter B, you could write down “banana.”
This is a great option but if you are really looking to win the game you should try and come up with the most unique word you can. Maybe something like “baked ziti.”
The goal is to come up with answers for each letter and category while also trying to think of words the other players in the game won’t think of.
After the game is over you will compare your answers with all of the other players. If someone came up with the same word as you, you both must cross that word off of your list. Whichever person has the most unique answers at the end of the game, wins!
These are the categories that you will be coming up with words for:
- TV Show
- Famous Father
- Father’s Day Gift
- Something Dad Likes
