1. Ducking for apples (or apple bobbing)
A simple concept, but lots of fun! This timeless Halloween classic if fun for all ages. Add a little extra sweetness to the game by floating your apples in a rum punch. Your older guests heads will be bobbing with joy all night long.
2. Doughnuts on a string game
Who actually knows the real name for this? Either way, this is one of the best Halloween party games around, so if your guests don’t love it, then do they don’t know how to have fun? Make sure to use jam-filled doughnuts to add a bloody Halloween twist.
3. Guess what’s in the box
This is another sure-fire winner. Your guests will love this throwback to their days of school Halloween parties. Paint small cardboard boxes black, cut a hole in one side, and put various gross items inside. The aim of the game is to stick your hand in the hole and figure out what you’re touching. Use weird items like jelly, or cooked spaghetti to gross your guests out big time.
4. The Monster Match-Up
Bring your work friends, school friends, uni friends, and family members together in a break-the-tension game of Monster Match-Up. Upon arrival, your guests will pick a name out of a witch hat and be partnered with their spooky chum for the remainder of the night. This is one of the best Halloween party games!
5. Pin the nose on the witch
Another classic party game that your guests will love. This game gets extra entertaining after a few drinks. Be careful of the pins in the hands of a tipsy pal – we don’t want any real blood-shed on Halloween! It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
6. Bucket of Doom game
Be ahead of the trend with this new Halloween Hit. If you like Cards Against Humanity, you’ll love Bucket of Doom. This Halloween equivalent of the explicit card game will have your guests giggling themselves to death.
The aim is to figure out a way of escaping ominous situations with the help of hilariously useless objects. Think along the lines of waking up inside the stomach of a whale, with only a hot dog and an angry beaver to help you. The best escape plans win.
7. Horror movie marathon
A classic way to bring your guests together and get them in the true spooky spirit. Make it extra fun by putting a witch hat on the top corner of the TV, and drinking a shot every time a character from the film stands under the hat like they’re wearing it.
8. Popin Pumpkins
This is as simple as it gets. Buy some orange balloons, stick some green paper on the top and call them pumpkins! The aim of the game is to pop as many of these precious pumpkins as you can in 30 seconds. You can stick small spooky prizes in half of the balloons to add an incentive to get properly involved.
9. Wrap a mummy
This is another party game your guests will love, especially after a few drinks. Nominate the two tipsiest people in the room to be the mummies, and get wrapping! The first team to fully wrap their mummy wins.
10. Who am I?
You can’t go wrong with a Halloween inspired version of charades. Write up some impression cards before your guests arrive, and let the madness unfurl.
