Description of Categorickell from Kickstarter -

"The rebirth of the ELL deck. The first featured game is: CATEGORICKELL!

A fast, frantic, tug-of-war for 2-6 players (2 teams), 5-10 minutes, ages 8+

Think of a country, starting with S or G! You are racing to do this before the other team! Each time you win, the 'active card' moves closer to you. Keep beating the other team to get it to your side and then score a point!

There are 19 suggested categories. Easy ones (e.g. food and drink), harder ones (e.g. musical groups/composers), and meta-categories (e.g. words exactly 5 letters long). Of course, you can also create your own topics if you have specific knowledge. Once, I watched 2 people play a full game, with the category of 'cosmetic products sold by our company'!"
