Halloween Party Games

Halloween party

Monster Mash

This game will have your guests laughing and dancing up a storm. Here’s how you play: Ask your guests to pair up and give each pair a single sheet of newspaper to set on the ground next to them. When the music is on, everyone has to dance. When the music stops, both people have to stop and quickly try and fit onto the sheet of newspaper. The difficulty and excitement start when they have to fold the paper into a smaller sheet every round. If you or your partner step or fall off the newspaper, you’re out. The winners are the last pair standing!

Who Am I? (Halloween Edition)

This game is more of an ongoing background game and  is perfect for large groups. As guests arrive, they will have a piece of paper taped to their back with a scary movie character written on it. Throughout the evening, guests are allowed to ask yes or no questions to determine what is written on their back.  It’s a simple game, but it’s an excellent way to get people talking!

Costume Contest

It wouldn’t be a Halloween party without your traditional Best Costume Contest! You can have a grand prize for the winner, or you can purchase a ribbon or trophy at the dollar store! Depending on how many guests you have, you could even do multiple winners for different categories, such as funniest, scariest, most creative, etc.

DIY Halloween Candy Bar

It wouldn’t be a wicked Halloween party without a nauseating amount of candy. You can’t just throw some sweets in a bowl and some brownies on a plate and call it good, though; this has to be just as epic as everything else. A DIY Candy Bar is a perfect way to serve your guests. It’s fun, creative and most importantly, delicious.

What you’ll need:

  • Tablecloth
  • Serving dishes in a variety of types and sizes. You can get as creative as you want with these. Use plastic cauldrons, glass bowls, mason jars, thrift store vases, witch hats, trick-or-treat baskets, etc.
  • Ribbon
  • Candy labels or decorative paper to make your own
  • Any additional decorations you want to add to your table
