Who says Halloween is just for youngsters? Halloween is, of course, a time for trick-or-treating, and mom and dad certainly can’t go out begging in the streets for candy, but the holiday can also be a neat time for some full-grown fun.
If you are designing a Halloween party for adults, you will want to have some fully grown Halloween games on hand. It is all part of the fun.
Some capital adult Halloween games include:
About the Town – This is a scavenger hunt. All you require to do is produce a list of Halloween-related items, pass out the list to each team, and send them on their way to collect the items. Some great objects to put on the list include:
A Hangman’s noose A black veil An obit
You get the idea. Just include items that make to do with being scared, ghosts, Halloween, or whatever.
You might try a mutation on the hunt, too. One distinguished one is to make the hunt a video scavenger hunt. Each squad goes off with video camera in hand (or cell phone with a camera or whatever) and shoots the items rather than actually bringing the items back with them. This is really cool because you can make the list of items include really big stuff and potentially chilling things like gravestones. For a further variation, you can let the list be solely things like: Superman, a clown, a buccaneer, a faerie princess, a wolfman, a vampire, and so on. That would mean the adult Halloween games would admit the youngsters via taking video of trick-or-treaters who are all dressed up.
Halloween Fortune Telling – In this game, your guests put their knowledge of one another to the test and get to know each other better.
Merely hand out slips of paper and a pencil to each guest. Each person then selects a person at the party (maybe even himself or herself), but doesn’t tell anyone who it is. Then, everyone write a “fortune” for that person, folds it, and puts it into the fishbowl. You can let everyone write one or many; that’s up to you.
And Then, each guest pulls out a slip of paper and reads the fortune. He then attempts to guess which person composed the fortune and which person the fortune is about.
Some examples of fortunes might be:
“This person will get caught doing something illegal and pass the night in jail.” “This person will marry someone from a foreign land.” “This person will cease his job and steal a Corvette when he turns fifty.” “This person will adopt a child.” “This person will become Chairperson of the PTA.”
You get the idea. Each person who correctly guesses acquires a humble prize, and this game is a wonderful way to get conversations initiated at your Halloween bash.
A really cool variance of this game is to let each guest place their name on a piece of paper and throw into the bowl. And Then have each invitee draw a name from the bowl and get the one who drew the name make up a scary story about the name drawn. Then have the other guest conjecture who the scary story is about.
As you can picture adult games can be a lot of fun and the types of games can be endless. It just takes a minuscule preparation to come up with adult Halloween games.
