No Technology – No Problem: TV and Telephone Ideas for Fun

Scattergories by Phone  “Scattergories” can be played on the phone or with your people in your household, without owning the game. The goal of the game: Players think of things that start with a chosen letter of the alphabet for each of several categories and earn points by naming something that is not repeated by anyone else. To get started: Write down 7 - 10 categories of things to be named. Examples of categories could be - occupations, animals, movie stars, things found in a refrigerator, things you lose, etc. How to play: Decide on a letter to be used for all categories in the round. Play the categories one at a time. Example: Letter is S, the category is Flowers. Participants silently think of an answer that they think will NOT be said by another player. Example: Sunflower, Shasta Daisy, etc. Moderator (who can also play) asks if all are ready with their answer. Participants reveal their answers and get one point if no one else says the same answer. Two points are awarded if the answer contains two words beginning with the designated letter - such as a flower with the letter S - Sweet Sultan. Round 1 - Using the same letter, repeat for all 7-10 categories you listed. Round 2 and 3 - Use the same categories, but choose a different letter. The person with the most points after three rounds wins.

Telephone Bingo: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Telephone Bingo will not take place on Friday, June 18. If rescheduled, VOA participants will be notified when meals are delivered.
