Halloween Party Games

Halloween Party Games

So you want to​ have a​ Halloween party,​ but are unsure how to​ keep the​ kids entertained while they are there. After all,​ there is​ only so much pizza and candy that a​ kid can take! if​ you are tired of​ the​ traditional games,​ like costume contests and bobbing for apples,​ here are a​ couple of​ alternatives that can help keep everyone entertained.

Spooky Storytelling

On a​ creepy night like Halloween,​ telling spooky stories can help set the​ mood. Before the​ party,​ you will want to​ take a​ small deck of​ index cards and write story-starting phrases. You will want at​ least one per party goer,​ and more if​ you want the​ game to​ continue longer. Keep them appropriate to​ your party's age group,​ but you can include things like:

It was a​ dark and stormy night...
The door creaked open and we​ saw...
The witch cackled over her cauldron,​ stirring what looked like...
I peaked under the​ bed and saw...
There was a​ knocking at​ the​ window and...
I heard a​ horrible scream and I knew...

To play the​ game,​ sit everyone in​ a​ circle and dim the​ lights. Consider having a​ flashlight to​ pass to​ the​ person whose turn it​ is​ to​ tell the​ tale. Have everyone pick a​ card,​ and then someone starts the​ story. Set a​ timer for one or​ two minutes,​ and that person has to​ start the​ story with the​ phrase on​ their card. When the​ timer goes off,​ the​ flashlight gets passed to​ the​ next person,​ who then continues the​ tale with the​ phrase on​ their card. This continues at​ least until everyone has a​ turn,​ or​ longer if​ you have the​ time.

Mummy Memory

Get a​ large serving tray and fill it​ with small Halloween goodies. Toy spiders and bugs,​ stickers,​ pumpkins,​ and other Halloween party favors can be a​ good way to​ go (plus,​ you can recycle these items into the​ goodie bags to​ go home when you are done). Cover the​ tray with a​ cloth,​ and give everyone a​ piece of​ paper and a​ pencil. Remove the​ cloth,​ giving everyone a​ minute or​ two to​ study the​ tray,​ and then recover. Everyone should then try to​ write down everything that they remembered,​ with the​ person remembering the​ most winning a​ prize.

Terror Tag

You need a​ larger,​ empty room for this game. Before the​ game starts,​ secretly assign each person to​ be a​ ghost or​ a​ mortal. an​ easy way to​ do this is​ to​ give each person a​ slip of​ paper with their designation on​ it​ – but make sure they know it​ is​ to​ be a​ secret! You should always have a​ much higher ratio of​ mortals to​ ghosts,​ so most of​ the​ time one or​ two ghosts will be plenty. Then,​ turn down the​ lights so that it​ is​ dark in​ the​ room (or you could blindfold players). Have them go about the​ room,​ shaking hands with other players,​ and whispering to​ them if​ they are ghost or​ mortal. if​ you shake hands with a​ ghost,​ you must freeze in​ terror. This continues until there are only ghosts left.

Halloween party games can be fun to​ play and help pass the​ time. if​ you need more ideas,​ consider giving any of​ your regular party favors a​ Halloween twist and using them.
