Halloween party games for adults are not always easy to come by. As Halloween party hosts, adults are a bit more challenging! With kids you have a ton of options out there to get them in the Halloween spirit but with adults it is not always so easy. This is especially true if you are working on a shoestring budget. Fortunately, there are plenty of games out there that will entertain and thrill your grown up Halloween party guests.
Here are five of our favorites that won’t even cost you a dime:
1. Finish my Horror Story
This one begins on the invitation to the Halloween party. When you send out your invitations, include a short story about something really scary but open-ended. This story should be Halloween slanted and allow for things to go in plenty of directions. Ask that the guests to think up an ending to the story and be prepared to share it at the party. This is great for an intellectual crowd and tons of fun to see who comes up with the nuttiest finish!
2. Find the Crazed Killer
What is Halloween without a murder mystery? Some of the greatest Halloween party games for adults areinteractive. Recruit some of your most creative and compliant guests to help you out with this one. Before the party, arrange for a dead “body” to be placed in an area that is not readily seen but eventually will be found. (In the bathroom, backyard, etc..) When the body is eventually found, announce that the murderer must be found.
Have the murderer prearranged before the night begins and have the rest try to figure it out based on clues you have in place. It costs nothing, but does take a little bit of creativity. There are ready made mysteries online to use if you would prefer to go that route or are not creatively inclined.
3. Squish Squash
It might be more popular for the kids but adults can have fun with it too. Line up several random bowls of Halloween goodies such as Witch eyeballs, zombie guts and worm rear ends for people to experiment with blindfolded. Just the random nature of the game is a heck of a lot of fun and it costs nothing to set up.
4. Name that Monster
Every guest that shows up to your Halloween party will get a random monster picture put on his or her back. Nobody gets to see their own monster. As they progress through the party, they are allowed to ask yes or no questions to figure out who their monster is.
5. Bobbing for Apples
It is a classic for a reason. Bobbing for apples is a ton of Halloween fun. When you need a go-to Halloween party game for adults, bobbing for apples should be at the top of your list. You will laugh until you cry watching your guests chase those elusive little apples.
