I'm surprised nobody has mentionned Scattergories yet. This works best for intermediate students. Divide the class into teams of 3. Pick 10 categories (examples: Cities, Food, Famous People, Cars, Political Leaders, Household Items, Animals, Languages, Types of Clothing). Pick a letter (like "A") and start the timer. Each group has 2 minutes to come up with a word in each category that starts with the letter "A". Teams get a point for each word that they come up with. However, if two teams write down the same word (for example, two teams write down "apple" under the category of food) nobody gets a point. This is where the challenge of finding unique words comes in!
