Scattergories Junior is a simplified and shortened version of the parent game. Players are given a master list of topics and then a twenty-sided die with letters on each side is rolled to determine the "key" letter. Players have a limited time to think of unique words that start with the letter and have to do with the topic. Players can still earn some points for on-topic words that don't start with the letter. (This is clearly different from the original game, as a simplification for younger children.) Players receive points for original words. The game goes for two rounds. The box advertises this game for Ages 8 - 11.
