Category Cards
Sent in by: Rachel of IA

A classy-fication word game.

To play, you need to make two sets of cards.

One set should have the letters A to Z; the other should have different categories like animals, food, or whatever else you can come up with.

Divide into teams and put all the cards face down into two piles.

One person chooses a card from each pile.

Each team then has 30 seconds to think of as many words as they can that start with the letter and belong to the category on the card that was picked.

One person on each team should write down all of the words.

For example if the letter card picked was "D" and the category card was "Jobs," a team could say dog catcher, doctor, and dentist.

The team with the most correct words in the end wins.

Duplicates don't count. This means that if more than one team comes up with the same word, no team gets a point.
