Fun Halloween Games for Adults:
Bag of Tricks:
This is the perfect game to play with a group of adults. It’s both ghoulishly gross and hysterically funny! The idea is simple…put your hand in the bag and try to figure out what you’re touching. Could be worms (aka, spaghetti noodles) or mummy brains (aka, a peeled tomato), you get to decide.
This is a simple game to put together, and a really fun game to play. It’s a must do at any Halloween party. We have all of the deets and printables ready for you, simple click here.
This game was played as part of our “Ghoul’s Night Out” party, and was a complete hoot. This was catered to a girls night out, but can easily be adjusted to play with the boys too. And the best part about this game is that it takes very little prep. It’s as simple as providing strips of paper and letting your guests do the rest!
We have all of the details for you here!
Pumpkin Decorating Contest:
What Halloween party would be complete without a pumpkin carving contest? This is a perfect activity at an adult party because you don’t have to worry as much about who’s using the knives! 🙂
All you need to do is provide the pumpkins, carving tools, and a tarp to contain the mess. The rest is up to your guests. It might be wise to set a time for this game, allowing each person the same amount of time to work on their masterpiece. When the time is up, you get to be the judge.
To add some extra fun, provide prizes for different categories. Here’s some suggestions…
- Best Overall Pumpkin
- Most Creative
- Most Intrigate
You can even have some ribbons made for your winners.
Do you remember playing Pictionary when you were a kid? Do you remember when it was a game show in TV? It was awesome watching adults try to draw pictures and guess what was being drawn. How about playing Pictionary at your next Halloween party? We promise, your guests will love it…even if they can’t draw! It’s one of our favorite Halloween games for adults because adults are fun to watch draw! 🙂
To play, simply split your group in half so you have two teams. Each team selects a “drawer” and the rest of the team are the “guessers.” The two people drawing will look at the same card, meaning they will draw the same thing. When you say go, they both start to draw while their teams guess what they are drawing. The first team to guess wins. No talking allowed by the drawer.
All you need for this game are the cards with things to draw, markers/pens, and paper or a white board to draw on. If you are using paper, we suggest using large paper like butcher paper so all of the guests can easily see what’s being drawn.
To make the cards, simply cut squares out of card stock or you can even use 3×5 cards. Here are some suggestions of things to draw…
- Trick or Treat
- Witch’s Brew
- Scary Movie
- Friday the 13th
- Cob Webs
- Candy Corn
- Caramel Apple
Have you player charades lately? It’s not very often we as adults are asked to run around a room looking like a goof ball, but a Halloween party is the perfect chance to do just that! And what’s even better? It takes very little prep for you as a hostess.
Charades is simply acting something out without saying any words. If you want to make teams for this game you can. It would be played very similarly to pictionary with both teams having an “actor” and the rest of the team being “guessers.” Both actors would take their turns at the same time.
If you don’t want to split into teams, you can totally play this game all together. You would just have one “actor” and the rest of the guests would guess.
You can use the same list from above for charades, but if you are playing both games here are some more suggestions. Again, you’ll just write these suggestions on a piece of paper and have the “actor” choose a card.
- Haunted House
- Pumpkin Carving
- Cast a Spell
- Silver Bullet
- Flying on a Broom
- Best Costume Winner
- Super Hero
- Bobbing for Apples
- Headless Horseman
- Trick or Treat Bag
- Bag of Candy
- Ring the Doorbell
