Jami says:

I lost the official scattergories game rules that came with the game and was relieved that I could print them out again.
Kenny says:

Can you use pronouns?
Judy says:

I say no, it has to be an article of clothing .
Thomas says:

I agree with you. I may be a lot like your friend, as I like to win (or to do well) but my brain checks out under pressure.
Troy says:

In the rules it has a way to determine if an answer is acceptable. All those playing would vote to on it. It's listed in the fifth section of "Rules for Acceptable Answers". If the group accepts it - it counts, if not - then it doesn't. You can read the rules here (or click on the "Game Rules" tab at the top of this section):
CariLynne says:

A friend of mine is convinced that you can use adjectives as the main letter. For example, the category is Articles of Clothing, and you have F as your letter, and he chooses Frumpy Dress. I argued that the article of clothing was the dress, not the frumpy. He says he's right. What's your opinion?
