Fun Halloween Games for Adults

Updated on October 25, 2011

Our Christmas party this year had a theme called Hip Hop Halloween. It’s a funny and crazy theme for a Christmas party. But then we have always striven to make our gatherings as creative as we can. Most especially, since our preschool staff is composed only of around ten to twelve people…and that already includes me. Some may be turned off by small gatherings but not us. We love the intimate group and the personalized games and themes we’ve had through the years.

Are you on a budget? Find out how to have a great party and still have a blast. A list of party themes is included too.

Party themes include: Hawaiian, The Seventies, Superheroes and more...

Party Ideas on a Budget

Prosperity Games: Mind Teasers

Voice Out

We voted on the several themes that were suggested. Hip hop won by one vote. The Halloween voters groaned and complained that the costume for hip hop wasn’t too exciting. So I suggested, why don’t we just combine the two? Thus HIP HOP HALLOWEEN theme was born.

Preparations:

Everyone was asked to come in a Hip Hop Halloween costume. And then we paired off and assigned each pair to come up with a game that is in line with the theme. Food, prizes and gifts were prepared by the school heads.

The Party

We started off the party with a photo shoot. Of course, we had to. Everyone looked good in their Hip Hop Halloween costume. It turned out even better than we expected.

It’s pretty interesting how games are made to fit the theme. Just a little twist and a dash of imagination, and you are well on your way.

1. Create a Word. Divide the group into two. One member of the group is seated on the chair with a paper and pen in front of him. The other members are standing up circling the table. The word Hip Hop Halloween is written on the paper. The object of the game is to write as many words that you can create out from the word mentioned above. You are only allowed to write one word at a time. After you write, the next person on your right sits down on the chair and continues writing. Followed by the next and the next person. We timed the game for three minutes. After that, papers were exchanged to be checked. Points were computed (example 10 points for each 3 letter word made, 20 points for 4 letter words and so on.) The winner of course is the group with the highest points.

The team on the left side won.

2. Make a Mummy. Divide the group into two. Each group is going to choose a person who will represent the mummy. We were given three rolls of tissue papers. The object of the game is to wrap the human with tissue paper as neatly as you can. The first group to accomplish the feat wins.

3. Mask Relay. Divide the group into two. Dark masks were made along with a silver bracelet and necklace. The object of the game is to put on the dark mask, wear the silver bracelet and necklace and run around the human post in front. Remove all the objects and pass it to the next person waiting in line. The first group to finish the relay wins.

4. Give Me, Give Me. Divide the group into two. The game master announces the instruction to give them something and we bring the object and place it in front of the table. Each group had a table assigned to them. (Example: Give me a cap. So if four of you have caps, then 4 caps are placed on the table.) After all the objects have been called out, the number of objects on the table is counted. The group with the most objects wins.

5. Hip Halloween Dance Contest. The group is divided into two. The challenge is to create a dance using Hip Hop Halloween steps without knowing what the music will be. Criteria was placed beforehand which included facial expression, timing, audience impact and so on.

Guess what? My group won! Hahaha

See the video.

6. The Humans vs. The Witches. The group was divided into two. One group was assigned as the humans while the other group was the witches. The witches wore newspapers that were shaped liked wings on their arms. Each witch had a paper with a tape on it. Small bottles were scattered on the floor. The object of the witches was to protect their body (small bottles) by making sure that the humans will not be able to get the bottles. The witch can “attack” the people by pasting the paper on the back part of the human’s body.

The human’s object was to get as many bottles as they can without being attacked otherwise he/she is out of the game. If the witch loses its body or its “power”, he/she is out of the game as well.

The group with the most points wins.

Allow yourself to have fun!

In a Nutshell

Feel free to use the ideas for your parties and family gatherings. Or this may be a sampler for you to create other great ideas as well. It was a wonderful Christmas party. Laughter rang in the air as the teachers allowed themselves to have fun! I guess what made it truly nice was because everyone participated without reservation and joined the games wholeheartedly.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      LOL we look darn good with our costumes and make-up! I think i should shift careers and be a professional stage make-up artist. You did really look old.LOL. It was a fun Christmas party. I loved the attitude displayed by your team members and I believe that's what made the party come alive. Thank you for allowing me to be always part of your celebration. It has become a youth regimen for me. Be blessed:)

      Hi Dottie! I had to finish this hub so slept pretty late last night. Does that make me a hubaholic? LOL We're expecting the rest of the troop to arrive today so we could all leave tomorrow. Dayzeebee was our special guest in our school :-) She enjoys being part of our little group!

      Hi VioletSun, It was simple and yet creative.  We had fun!  LOL  Sure, I would love to have you over and join our games. :-)  Guess what, I also won the best costume award.  Hahaha I look so "Hallooweeeeny" I did'nt even recognize myself. Well, dayzeebee enjoyed putting my make-up and made me look OLD!

      Hahaha Alberto, thanks! It was a challenge when you don't know what the music will be.  And since we only had around 5-8 minutes to choreograph the whole thing, we just had to allow the music to "affect" us. LOL  Happy New Year!
