Good game but……

Version 1.6.9
I really like this game but…… it’s very American! Who the heck in UK knows American game shows or airlines?🤔
Also, I keep trying to play a tournament and it keeps swirling and saying.. ‘trying to connect’. There’s nothing wrong with my Internet but just keeps crashing on the VIP tournament.
Also the categories are very repetitive. I think there should be a larger variety of categories.

Same categories ALL the time! ‘Things in an arcade’ and ‘things in a garden’ very boring. There aren’t enough categories so you see the same ones every time you play. Lots of answers aren’t accepted even though they are correct. Like I said could be great but it seems very lazy and half hearted

The app is badly setup in terms of playing with friends. Games take ages to go through to your friends and sometimes the results get lost if an add pops up.
Would be much better if it was live games at the same time as friends, I don’t see any reason why it’s not.

This game is one of my favourite apps on my iPhone, as it is so much fun competing against others, doing daily challenges and doing duels against friends or someone else. The thing I would
say about the game is that your cost for a round is a bit much, and I haven’t been able too play until i have enough coins. Other from that, this game is GREAT 👍

Xenophobic and condones animal abuse

Version 1.4.0
This game is so US-centric it’s xenophobic. Categories include US gameshow, US airline and many correct answers in other categories (such a mammals, chain stores and TV shows) are marked incorrect if they are not American (yak, Fenwicks, Neighbours). It has a category Things at a circus which condones animal abuse. It could be a good game but sadly it’s horribly Americanised.

Great concept but terrible app

The concept of the game is great. I love it! But the app is just terrible. I have to close the app and reopen it to update games in progress and be able to play. It would better if each game consisted of more than one round and you were able to view the results of completed games. I would not recommend this app as it currently is.

You play against the clock, yet the keyboard is so bad you spend most of the time trying to type one word! It takes about 10 attempts just to type one letter as you can’t type quickly because you will find it misses most letters!
Also... something you wear (R), I put Red Hat and Red Shirt, both were rejected, yet someone else put Red Dress and that was accepted!

Mixed feelings

I enjoy the game but find it frustrating. It’s very Americanised so UK answers are deemed incorrect. It randomly autocorrects answers, sometimes in your favour and other times causing an incorrect answer. If you have the same top score as another player it only chooses one winner, so even if you ‘win’ you don’t get the coins

Let down by being American-centric and prudish

 –

2020-05-13
A good game and a great database of answers are let down by questions only an American-resident could reasonably answer. Also, when you can’t submit Willy Wonka as a ‘fictional character’ just because it contains a ‘rude’ word you know it’s gone too far!

Mediocre

2020-04-29
Version 1.6.2
As others have said it’s very Americanised, and answers are shown as wrong when they are legitimate answers over here. Also, the censoring is really over the top. For instance, it asked for a spice or her starting with J, and I said ‘Jerk Seasoning’ and it was censored 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ So you get lots of incorrect answers just because they contain other words. Also, there are way too many adverts and after every advert the game crashes. Lastly, the keyboard is weird on the game which makes it very difficult to type, and you constantly misspell things or take a lot of time typing because of the layout of it - The game itself though is fun 😊 just has a few annoying things that ruin it.

Good

I do love a game of Scattergories. Every Christmas with my family I play the game (the normal one), and we have so much fun. This is why when I saw it on my phone, I immediately downloaded it. It's really, really, really, really good.
However there is one annoying, unexplainable thing. If I was playing a game and we both got 40, it would say the other person won, when it is obviously a draw. I would really like an explanation for this. Is it if I'm a higher level I win?
I would really appreciate it if you could please get back to me on that.
Thanks For Reading 😉 xx

The fun of this game is ruined by the answers they disallow incorrectly, or because of regional spelling differences. You can dispute their rules but to no real outcome.

You’ve ruined my fav game. Like previous review it’s all American also doesn’t recognise plurals or miss spelling. Half the fun of writing the answers is it doesn’t matter how you spell a word as you all read them out in turn and then have a fun ‘discussion’ whether your answer is too ‘way out’ and if the group will allow it or not.
I have deleted it as you probably will too!

The game itself is as old as the hills and I’ve always loved it but this app is so frustrating! Firstly it’s VERY Americanised, so many answers I’ve used that are legitimate UK answers but it just doesn’t recognise them, similarly a lot of the questions are only geared to a US market I.e. US airline or US game show. Also and this is my biggest problem is that I don’t have Facebook (yes they do exist) so I play a duel with a random person - that’s fine - however to do so costs 30 coins and even if you win you still pay that out so your coins NEVER increase! You end up only being able to play 3 - 4 games per session and that’s it! Crazy

Good fun, but needs some work

It doesn’t accept British spellings and considers “y” as a vowel. I guess it’s more enjoyable for Americans as many of the questions are related to their culture, brands, television, etc.

I used to put up with the excessive adverts to enjoy this game, but since the update, it’s just not fun anymore. You only get 60 coins rather than 200, which means you can play one tournament game and unless you win that game, that’s it! Yes, you can now play duels for free, which would have been good if they’d kept the format the same....but now you have to send the game and wait for the person to play you back... I want to play someone at the same time like before. I don’t want to wait around for days in the hope they play me back. Not sure I’ll be playing much more unless they make changes.

Good Game But...

I’ve had the board game for many, many years so thought I’d give this version a go. It’s a good game and I would have rated it at least a 3* maybe even 4* but it keeps crashing after EVERY ad! I get it’s a free game so they make money by advertising but I don’t enjoy having to close the app and then wait for it to reload after EVERY round. It takes away the pleasure in playing and if it continues for much longer I will delete the app.

Good game but there are SO many ads it’s ridiculous. I want to turn the game off after a couple games because I’m watching more ads than I am playing. I understand you offer a paid version with no ads but that’s no reason to pile in an ad after every bloody game on the free version. I’d rather delete the game entirely than be pressured into buying the paid version.
