    Default Adult Halloween Party Games????

    Sorry for starting a new thread...just wanted to weave out any kid games so i can just grab games for adults only...

    my party will be decked out in decor and everyone will be in costume...other than enjoying a beer, music, snacks and scenery (hopefully girls with scantaly clad costumes as well), what can u suggest?

    i dont think the scavenger hunt will be appropriate as i dont want people messin with my expensive props

    If you are having an alcohol induced party something we have done is give our guests the option to "Tempt Their Fate" throughout the night.

    We have a clear fish bowl, crystal ball, etc and place pieces of paper inside. On each slip of paper we have written a different potential "Fate" for guests to pull out of the bowl. The only rule is this: If the guest decides to tempt fate they must be willing to except the consequences or they should NOT partake. Do not hint to the guests what could be on the paper, they must make the decision before pulling out a piece of paper. Ex:

    "You have tempted fate and fate shall be lenient, please present this fortune to your Dark Lady for a Treat."

    (The guest brings the paper to me and in return I usually do a dramatic display for everyone, because we are nuts like that, and give the guest a candy bar, lottery ticket, gift card etc.)

    "You have tempted fate and for this you must be sacrificed! Take this fortune to your Dark Lord for your ultimate demise."

    (The guest takes the paper to my husband and in return he pulls out our "Chalice of Cessation", an intimidating chalice filled with a concoction unknown to any human mortal....or in this case a combination of our fav halloween novelty drink "Gangrene"(recipe below), with a splash of Jager & just a hint of anything else hardcore we can find to throw into the cup. Another dramatic display and the guest is "Sacrificed" by drinking the cup.)

    Feel free to come up with your own twists of fate, but that should get you started. Its a huge hit at our parties and has become one of our signature games. The trick is to not force people to play, but make it a huge deal and play it up so they WANT to play. Make sure they know there could be consequences and if they decide to play they must follow through. Only the brave may tempt their fate!

    This is our Fav Halloween novelty drink recipe. We have included it at all of our Halloween parties since our first party. My husband drank it all night & got so sick on it that I was cleaning green stains out of my hallway carpet to the bathroom for weeks. So naturally it is now apart of every Halloween party is some way or another. (I have no idea how he drank it all night in the first place) So slight warning if you decide to use this, if you dont want your guests wasted, use this ONLY for novelty. lol I dont recommend serving it as one of the normal drinks. Its a huge hit however because of its nastiness.

    Yield: 1 Servings
    2 ounce Green creme de menthe
    1 ounce Vodka
    ounce Tequila
    1 tablespoon Blackberry brandy

    Hope this helps!

    Last year we did a "Horror Movie Trivia Challenge". Some of our decorations alluded to well-known horror films. The challenge was to figure out which decorations were from movies and which movies they were from. I assigned point values based upon the difficulty of the clue and the relative obscurity of the movie. Here is an example: In one bathroom I splashed blood all over the inside of the tub and the shower curtains and had a butcher knife in the tub. I also wrote "redrum" in lipstick on the mirror behind the bathroom door. I also had a bloody bucket with a rope attached to it poised above the bathroom door. Those clues would be for "Psycho", "The Shining", and "Carrie" respectively. I had clues for 25 or so movies. The guests had a blast trying to figure out all the clues. The cool thing is that you can play while still drinking and talking with people. Anyway, at the end of the night, the guest with the highest point total won. The prize was a gift certificate to Blockbuster. Hope this helps.

    Great idea! A cross between a scavanger hunt and a trivia contest. Its too late for us to use this year, but I'd love to do that next year. Thanks!

    I'm not sure how well games go over at adult parties with socializing and alcohol.

    Some things that have gotten play here are:

    -Truth or Dare Jenga. The pieces have questions on them or acts you have to perform. Nothing too crazy, the most extreme being pinch the butt of the person to your left, etc.. You pull out a piece and have to do what it says or answer the question.

    -Shocker game (spencers)

    And that's it! Usually people are into whatever.

    We had trivia and only one person showed interest.

    I am thinking about giving everyone a toe tag and when you get someone to say a forbidden word, you get their tag. The person with the most tags at the end of the game wins a prize.

    We've tried several different games at our parties. Scavenger hunts went over good but we always have a problem with the weather here in Holland. It rains ALOT! For the scavenger hunts that we did have, we planted things close by the house and in the park a few feet away.
    Another game we did was the wheel of torture. I had high hopes for that game but it didn't go over very well. I think we had too many people and not enough people with halloween trivia knowledge. I split the group up into 3 teams with each time having an american capt. They had to spin the wheel. If it landed on torture, they were directly tortured. If it landed on a trivia category, they had to answer a question in that category. An incorrect answer resulted in a torture. Biggest problem seemed to be keeping the other two teams focused while the third team was busy with spinning, answering and being tortured.
    Last year I came up with a game based on what I read on this forum. Several people were doing a murder mystery type game. I didn't really have the time or creativity to think up my own murder mystery. So what I did was to set up random clues in our 'hard rot cafe' and then split the guests into 3 CSI teams. They were given the task of solving the mystery of what happened in the 'hard rot cafe'. The team that came up with the best story won. They did come up with some reallllly creative stories lol I got so many compliments about the game that I've decided to do something similiar this year.
    This year our theme is the mad scientist. I've started the game with the invitations. Using the spider invitation that was posted on this forum as an example, I sent out our invitations in the form of a desperate letter asking for help. I put in the letter that Pieter (my husband) was acting very strange the past weeks. He always acts strange around halloween but this time he's totally flipped out. I also added something about the weird noises and laughter I heard coming from his workroom, etc. I added that I noticed in his journal that he's planning on carrying out this plan on the 27th of oct (date of our party) and where his workroom is located (our address). I also stated that children should be left at home since Pieter could use them in his plan. I then desperately pleaded for help with stopping Pieter and promised to reward those that help with a fanastic party after he is stopped.
    The night of the party, Pieter will be dressed as the mad scientist and we will have a lab set up under our carport. Once again we will split up the guests into teams and let them have a go at finding out what Pieter is up to based on what they find in the lab. I hope it goes as well as last year.

    By the way, here's a pic of the wheel of torture:

    Vancouver: The whole "Gangrene" drink idea was mine, and it WAS a party with alcohol...I just couldn't be mad at him. lol However I will tell you he has been teased immensly throughout the years. The way I look at it, I'd much rather clean up my husbands puke than someone else's...so in a way I'm relieved it was him and not another ghastly goul. Fun can sometimes = consequences, I'll take my chances.

    BTW, we are reworking the fate game this year as our theme is a vampire theme. We will be using a black or red crushed velvet bag and placing red & white polished decorating stones in it (For lack of better ideas; We're going for a semi-sophisticated vampire look). White = Good Fate & Red = Sacrifice. We may add a black stone in the mix for a "Grand Prize" of some sort. Throughout the night we are going to work in a short song or sound into our music playlist and have it randomly play throughout the night. Once the sound/song plays, no matter what we are doing we will stop and give our guests a chance to tempt their fate. If anyone has any other good ideas to jazz it up a bit lemme know!
