If you think you have no party games, think again! We've done some Halloween tricks and treats for the 21
Maybe you have outgrown the normal balloon design, and games like "spin the bottle" may have lost their thrill. Whether you are looking for a game to break the ice, or for one that does more than just have fun with an icy drink, we have it!
We have developed nine spooky games for your FrightFest. All are best played in costumes, and some may leave your guests really scared, but that's fine. Because if there's ever been a time to eat, drink and get scary, this is Halloween.
Apples are drinking
The seesawing around apples is a classic harvest festival. Of course adults can play with the traditional fruits, but would not it be fun to play around with something less innocent?
There are two easy ways to turn this into 21+ entertainment. You can buy some small liquor bottles (the kind you get on planes). Throw them into your tub or barrel with the apples and water. If a guest finds schnapps instead of an apple, he has to take a shot.
Alternately – and somewhat more subtly – is the shot-in-the-apple approach. Dig up a small hole in the top of the apples. Fill it with a dash of alcohol like Fireball and set it aside. Give them a little time to absorb the alcohol, then let the apples swim with spikes and the games begin!
Do not say "Halloween"
or "haunting" or "scary" or whatever you want to be like the game. The idea is to create a "damn phrase" related to Halloween. This game lasts the whole party and – be warned – it can get intense. Make sure all guests know the phrase as they enter. A sign is good if you do not welcome everyone at the door.
If someone pronounces the cursed words, he must immediately avert the curse! In this case, of course, the curse is a drink for adults.
Distribute cheap colored beads for a spin at the start of the party. If someone hears another guest pronounce the curse, he can take his pearls. The guest with the most collected necklaces at the end of the night wins the game.
Spooky Scavenger Hunt (with pictures)
This requires a little organization, but is a great way to get the party going. Invite guests to form teams and give them a Halloween scavenger hunt. But instead of limiting the hunt for stationery, you should add "tricks". Things like "sadness about a (wrong) skeleton loud enough to attract attention" or "trying on the costume of a teammate" are certainly entertaining.
Let the guests know that with every item or challenge, they need to take a picture with their phone as a group. Be sure to award a prize for the most creative group photos, not just the first team.
Zombie, Witch or Ghost
This is one that everyone can play together, regardless of the size of their group. Assign someone as "it" and make sure everyone drinks something. Next, all guests have to get up. The person who is "It" turns around so that her back is turned to the other guests and asks, "Zombie, witch, or ghost?"
In answer, everyone chooses his favorite. For zombies, guests place their arms straight in front of them, like a walking zombie. Ghosts raise their arms in a shaky motion on both sides – you know, like ghosts. Those who want to be witches put their hands on a place in the shape of a witch's hat.
The "It" makes its choice without turning around. Whatever group she calls, she has to sit down and have a drink, and they're off to the next round. The game continues until there is only one person left.
Adult Mummy Wrap
If you've ever wrapped someone in toilet paper, you know this game. In teams of two, guests must wrap their partner in toilet paper as soon as possible. A judge then determines the winning team.
To make it a little more challenging, guests have to hold a drink in one hand all the time. Be sure to play this game outside or on a rag – the tendency for spilled drinks is high!
Similar to Russian roulette with shots, the host or hostess has all the power. He or she makes a tray of colored shot glasses. Half of them are real and hard to drink, and the other half is pure juice. The party presenter goes around asking each guest, "Trick or Treat?".
The Pumpkin King Cup
King's Cup has become a classic of college drinking. While the rules vary, the general concept is the same. Assign an action to each number in a card game. For example, if a guest draws a three, it may mean that he can give anyone who plays a drink. If you pull a lady, it may mean that all women have to drink.
Then fan the card game for the "Royal Cup" in the middle of the table. But instead of a royal goblet, use a leak-proof plastic gourd. Every time someone paints a king, he can pour all or part of his drink into the pumpkin. The person who is stuck with the last king or the last card (depending on which rules you choose) must drink the cup of the pumpkin king.
The Mad Scientist's Laboratory
This is another one that adds fun to the host. Fill bowls with items that feel disgusting. Cold, cooked noodles are always a good choice, as are jellied puddings, frozen grapes, peeled hard-boiled eggs and cooked hot dogs.
Cover the bowls so your guests can not see what's inside. Then, in turn, let everyone take their hands inside and guess what's inside. Give prizes to the best guessers, and drink the worst.
Guess the villain
This is the ultimate icebreaker! Write down every villain you can imagine. When guests enter the party, they put a card on their forehead without them seeing the villain you assigned them.
To guess which villain they are, guests must ask yes or no, "Could you kill? I with a stake through the heart? "If the answer is no, they must drink; A yes brings you one step closer to the annoying card.
Board games are not just for kids – they're fun for adults! Drinking games at the Thanksgiving dinner may not be appropriate, but Halloween is the perfect occasion for such things.
Whether you are pumping apples or celebrating the pumpkin king and his cup, we are sure that these board games will offer you a wicked good time.
