Brainstorming country and nationality words game

Brainstorm as many suitable words as you can into each gap below. You will only get points for ones that other groups haven’t written (correctly), so concentrate on ones which are difficult. You don’t necessarily need to write pairs of countries and nationalities, but you can if you are sure about both. There are no points off for mistakes and you can only get points for things that you have written, so if you are not sure just write your best guess below.  

Countries Nationalities/ Languages/ Adjectives


































Take turns with other groups reading out words from above, including the spelling. You will get one point if you are the only group that has (correctly) written the thing that you choose. If you have made a mistake (spelling mistake, wrong column above, etc) or another group has written exactly the same thing, you get no points and play passes to the next group. The first team to 15 points wins.

Continue the game, but this time you have to both say where the words below go in the table above and what would match it in the other column to get one point.
