When you start off playing Super Scattergories or the normal version, each player takes a piece of paper and three category cards. The paper has three columns of 12 blank lines. Each of the cards has four lists of 12 unique categories. That comes to a grand total of 144 different categories. This is a much quieter game than some of the other board games out there on the market. Many of the other games are just what they are called, party games. They will have you yelling and shouting while playing these games. Not so much with Scattergories. This game, although a party game, is kind of a keep to yourself game. Why? You don't want your opponent to know what words you have, because the you won't get any point. If you play Scattergories, you might as well play to win. If you're a fan of the board game, the Super Scattergories is for you. Of course, if you didn't care for the board game, don't think you will find what it is missing in Super Scattergories. This is still Scattergories no matter how you look at it. Board games that get turned into computer games, are meant for people who have no one to play the game with. This way they can play with the computer instead of people.
So, should you run out to the store right now and buy this game? Only if you're a die hard Scattergories fan. Even then you may just want to stick to the board game. If you can never get enough friends together to play this game, then Super Scattergories may be just what you are looking for. Don't expect too many differences in the computer game to the board game, because you won't find it. One thing to keep in mind, is that the computer makes you follow the rules no matter what. So if you're use to friends and family giving you a break and changing up the rules, don't think that will happen here. Overall, it is a pretty good jump from board game to computer game. If you love Scattergories, Super Scattergories will be no different. This game is a perfect port of Scattergories to computer.
