Top Halloween Games for Adults
Here are some ideas for great grownup party games:
Truth or Dare – This game can take on all sorts of nuances and innuendo. It all depends on the group you're throwing the party for. Write up a pile of questions and dares ahead of time, throw them in a bowl, and let the games begin.
Charades – Everyone loves a good game of guessing. Use Halloween themes for the game topics. Pick teams such as guys against gals, ghouls against goblins, or even dead against undead.
Name that Ghostly Tune – See which team can name the most Halloween classics from snippets played for them. For a real brain teaser, ask them to name the artist as well.
Karaoke – This game always brings out the laughter and fun. Sing your heart out to your favorite monster jam and ask everyone else to join in. Let judges decide who has the best rendition and offer a prize.
Who's Who – This game involves the costume you choose. For example, the invitation may state that you should come as your favorite scary character. At a chosen time during the party, everyone will go into character, giving everyone else time to guess who they are and write it down. Keep the characters as obscure as possible to keep the guessing going.
Mystery Whodunit – The invitation for this type of party should stress an RSVP. Upon arrival, each guest gets a piece of paper detailing who they are to play in the mystery as well as instructions for their character. The host is the detective who helps solve the crime. Choose someone in your family who agrees ahead of time to play the murder victim. At the prescribed time, each person goes into character. When the lights go out, the murder occurs. When you turn the lights back on, there are clues to find out whodunit.
Fear Factor – Blindfold those who dare take the challenge and have them touch a series of things and try to guess what they are. It can be a bowl of cold spaghetti worms, gelatin brains, peeled grape eyeballs, or anything else that makes your guests get all creepy crawly inside.
Halloween is the one holiday we get to pull out all the stops and anything goes. Make your party as spooky and eerie as you like. Pick a fun and freaky party theme and start planning today!
