I thought it would be a good idea to compile everyone's ideas into one thread. I know that ideas have been asked for numerous times this year and I'm sure this topic will come up several times next year...this way we can point people to one thread with all the stunts we've come up with. Since all the parties are close at hand or already over I thought there might be some new ideas from people who are playing the game this year.

Here's what I've got so far:
1. Beg the person to your left to spank you.
2. Have someone give you a uni-brow with a pen/marker or makeup pencil and leave it for the rest of the night.
3. Imitate another party-goer and have everyone guess who you are.
4. Receive a wedgie from the person on your right.
5. Serenade someone.
6. Be the servant of the last player until the next person tempts fate.
7. Do the Thriller dance until you can convince 5 people to join you.
8. Drink a beer while doing a hand stand.
9. Wear your underwear on the outside of your clothes (or on your head) for an hour.
10. Get everyone’s attention and lead a sing along to the Addam’s Family theme song.
11. Attempt to seduce the person to your right.
12. Show us your stupidest “human trick”.

oooh you're evil! :D

We are only having 6 "bad" fates:

Sing "the itsy bitsy spider" and do the hand gestures.
Solo dance to the Monster Mash
Eat chocolate covered ants
Eat a chocolate covered cricket (OMG one has the leg sticking out!)
Eat a too-realistic gummy mouse
Compose a halloween haiku (may be timed... I have a stopwatch)

We don't want to go too far this year as it's the first year we're doing this, but next year... :D

Here's a few more that one of my guys came up with:

1. Silently pantomime your favorite horror character until someone guesses who you are.
2. Come up with a porn star name for yourself that gets majority approval.
3. Call a friend who’s not at the party and convince them that Kid Rock is there.

Here's my list of bad fates so far:

Slave to the next person who talks to you for 5 minutes
Get a singalong going to the Flintstones theme song
Take a mystery shot
Eat a mini-cauldron of something gross looking
Go outside and howl at the moon
Be hog tied or handcuffed for 5 minutes
Chug a beer
Laugh maniacally
Do the limbo by yourself without a limbo stick
Do not talk for 5 minutes. Do not explain if anyone asks.
Walk through house saying "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" like Jack Nicholson for 2 minutes.
Read the palm of someone you don't know.
You must act like a zombie for 5 minutes
Do an interpretive hula dance - with no music - for 1 minute
Impersonate the person you came with
Sing everything you say for 5 minutes.
Act like a rodeo cowboy for 1 minute. Make sure you yell "yeehaw" a lot.
Do a Halloween rap right now until the crowd tells you to stop.
Attempt to bite the neck of the person your came with.
Handcuff yourself to the person to your left for 15 minutes
Get on all fours and howl like a werewolf.
Hitch a piggyback ride on someone.
Breakdance

My problem is coming up with GOOD fates! Can anyone share their ideas for these??

For Bad Fates:

* Dance the Monster Mash like Frankenstein would. "Ungh! That's good!"
* QUACK! You're a duck, so act like one. With feeling, baby!
* Practice the art of being a vampire by stalking your victim dramatically. (from... um, the other thread... sorry, can't remember whose idea this was)
* Sing along with Madonna because she's always in vogue.
* I love you and you love me, won't you sing... like Barney
* Why just dance? When you can RIVERDANCE!
* Nevermore will you linger in obscurity. Give a poetry recital.
* Make the very best fish face you can. The very best.
* Don't be caught without the soul for getting down. Get down - 'cause this is Thriller!
* Ehhhhh! Macarena
* Come on, Scooby Doo. Sing the theme song in Scooby's voice.
* Because a mime is a terrible thing to waste... be a mime in a box.
* Go ahead. You know you want to. Take a little turn on the catwalk.
* Get everyone's attention and lead a sing-along of the Addams Family theme. (from Rikki)
* Who's a little tea spout? YOU'RE a little tea spout! Sing the song WITH hand gestures (from Frankie's Girl)
* Say "Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers" 5 times really fast while patting your head and rubbing your stomach.


For good fates, I have an assortment of inexpensive items (small liquor bottles, specialty candy, Halloween trinkets, etc.) On each of the good fate cards, I put a little something from a collection of mis-fortunes, Onion horoscopes, and Despair.com. Guests who get a good fate will get to pick their prize.

Some of the good fate "mis-fortunes":

* You have a big future somewhere in a galaxy far, far away.
* Help! I'm trapped inside a balloon factory! ( the fate slips will be inside balloons... har-di-har)
* Avoid large, heavy objects traveling at a high rate of speed.
* Now is not the time to try something new.
* The stars will be on vacation next year.
* By the end of the week, you'll be the nation's foremost expert on muskrat attacks, industrial glue mishaps, and rare Egyptian curses.
* The early worm is for the birds.
* Always remember that you are unique. Just like everybody else.
* One word. Zombies
* You've never been good with technology, making an unstoppable robot army especially difficult for you to handle.

we did a tempt your fate game, and it was pretty great! It's after 4 am, and the last people just left. The only problem we had was with another game, where we had gold coins for people to buy dares. One person didn't do any dares, but convinced the early leavers to give their coins, so they won without having done anything. Kinda made the people who did do them feel cheated, so I'm gonna go get some prizes for them tomorrow. They were such great sports, they don't deserve to be screwed over like that.

I love all of these ideas so far. I am doing this game for the first time this year. I esp love the scoop for poop idea. LOL I have always wanted to make a cake in the NEW liter box, so this gives me a better insitive to make one now. And make people scoop for the tootsie rolls and baby ruths inside and eat them. Just love that! :)

I dont have to many other ideas of my own. I plan on having my music played on a karokee machine, so I figured I would make one of the bad fates where they have to sing a song on the microphone. :) Still thinking of more, if I come up with any, I will share.

The big thing at our house is the auction!! It's tough to get adults to play games and like it so we have everyone play for monopoly money. This year we're also going to do good fate/bad fate and have the good fates be prizes and play money.

After a couple hours we do an auction of about 10prizes. We wrap the prizes in similar craft paper so people don't know what they're bidding on. We mix in cool prizes (gift certificates, lottery tix, cute stuff like a sumo wrestler table top game ) and we have crappy prizes (homemade geico money character, inflatable cat, pizza hut coupon) and the last auction is the auction to take somebody's prize.

This is a good one for mixed adult and kid parties. The littlest kid really gets into it and loves bidding! it's so cute.

Bad Fates:
-We made (2) of the bad fates "hand cuff" fates. This way, the first person to get the "hand cuff" card will have to wait until the other is chosen & then those two people will be handcuffed together for 15 minutes.

-We made (2) cards pudgy bunny cards. This way, the first person to get the "puggy bunny" card will have to wait until the other is chosen & then those two people will have to compete in a pudgy bunny contest in front of everyone.

-Shotgun a beer & get as many party goers as you can to join you

-Put on the funny hat or wig (provided by your host) & wear it for the next 30 minutes

Good Fates:
-We use prizes for the good fates

Bad Fates!

Thanks to all the people here for sharing ideas, photos, suggestions, etc.! Our party is this Saturday and this forum has helped tremendously! We are having up to 80 people (Yikes! What was I thinking! Ha ha!).

We plan to play Tempt Your Fate with the following bad fates plus a couple of others we saw suggested here on the forum:

You kill me! Fake strangle the nearest person you've never met before!

It's a howling good time! Go to a window and howl at the moon!

Silly goose! You tempted fate and now you must goose someone of the same sex standing nearest to you!

You're possessed by the ghost of Elvis! Sing a little bit of "Hound Dog" to
ward off his evil spirit!

Till death do you part! Get on your knees and propose marriage to an unrelated person standing to your left!

Spanks for playing! Beg the person on your right to spank you!

Death becomes you! Fall down and play dead for 30 seconds while the crowd counts down!

Stranger things have happened… ask a stranger their name, occupation and what color underwear they're wearing and announce the answers for everyone to hear! (EX: "This is Mary, she's a secretary and she's wearing blue underwear!")​

My party is this Saturday and I am planning on playing this game as well. One thing that I am doing that I dont see listed is Wasabi Peas! If anyone has had them then they know what they taste like!LOL You can find them in Wal-Mart but this will surely be a bad fate.

I've never had Wasabi Peas but that sounds like a good "bad" fate! LOL! My fates went over REALLY well and the guests had more fun with Tempt Your Fate than I even anticipated. We had 20 balloons altogether and we actually had people HOPING for a bad fate and not a good fate! Ha ha! This is just the BEST Halloween party game ever and it will be a staple of my parties from now on. This forum ROCKS!

We do the truth or dare balloons at parties, so for halloween we made trick or treat balloons. same concept but the tricks are dares and the treats are treat bags filled with candy, little liqour bottles etc. we do however have a consequence bottle. the bottom shelf tequila bottle! if someone declines a dare they do a shot from the consequence bottle! so much fun!!

What great ideas everyone!! I stole many so I thought I should contribute something back. Here are a few "bad fates" that we're doing at our party this weekend.

- Do your best 20 - 60 second strip tease or sexual dance.
- You cannot use pronouns for the next hour (e.g., I, you, he, she, etc) , if you do, take a drink each time.
-Act out the following charade until someone guesses it. "Dawn of the Dead"
- Get everyone's attention and tell them the answer to the following question:
Where is the weirdest place you've fantasized about or actually had sex. Choose the weirdest of the two to share.
- Get everyone's attention and tell them the answer to the following question:
Of all the sexual role play characters (e.g., nurse, officer, etc). Which one turns you on the most?
- Get everyone's attention and tell them the answer to the following question:
If you had to have sex with one professor at this university, which would you choose?

Talk in the third person for the rest of the night.
When talking to people ask "is that your final answer" before saying anything.
Sit down in the middle of the room and speak to no one for 10 mins. Offer no explanation.
Do the thriller dance until you get 4 people to join you. You are not allowed to tell them why or how many people. You can only ask people to join.

This game went well last year.

I'm working on new bad fates.

We should collect our ideas and post some more.

Highly popular as a game.

Yeah, Holla! it is a great game. We have played it the last few years and it really keeps the party going. I was gonna take a break from it this year so I could "schmooze" more and mingle, but had too many requests to do it.

Some bad fates we do are making the "fatee" do special dances in front of the group. For example, we have a Halloween tutu they have to wear and do a ballet; a Sombrero, serape, and Maracas (and a Sombrero to lay on the floor) and they must do the Mexican Hat Dance; they must wear a Grass skirt, leis, shell bra and do a Hula; pick 5 of their friends and do YMCA (we have costumes for the Cowboy, Construction Worker, Indian, Policeman, Biker, and Sailor).

We have about 15 costume/song combinations and everybody really gets a kick out of the dances.
