I’ve said before…I LOVE GAMES! Games are one of the best ways to learn another language as they are often competitive which makes you want to do an even better job and you learn without realizing you are learning, which is quite important. When looking to purchase the game, I’ve seen it categorized as un jeu de société (board game) as well as un jeu de lettres (word game) and it is both, but it can also be un jeu en ligne (online game). So, I am proposing that we start our own Scattegories game with the readers of this blog as the contestants. You’ll get points for all the words that you propose that have not been proposed by any other contestant in each round. I’ll be the judge as far as whether or not the words actually fit the corresponding categories and I’ll keep track of the points with my own comments. I think we should shoot for five rounds to begin with to see how much interest you all have in participating and the person with the most points will be crowned Le Roi ou La Reine de Scattegories en Français!
Je vous donne dix catégories et une lettre. Vous devez répondre avec un mot qui commence avec cette lettre. Évidement, vous ne devez pas répondre le même que les autres et il faut être créatif. Bonne chance!

As a side note, you can order a bilingual version of the real Parkers Brothers Scattergories Le Jeu at Toys R Us Canada, for example.
