Top 10 Halloween Party Games

Halloween is up there with the greatest of them when it comes to throwing a party. It’s so good that some people compare it to Christmas. It’s an excellent opportunity to let loose and enjoy yourself without feeling guilty and an occasion to dress up in ridiculous costumes. Moreover, a Halloween party wouldn’t be complete without a few boozy drinking games. So here are the top ten drinking games for Halloween.

10. Halloween Whodunit

Have everyone gather around a table and hand out cards to each person. There is a letter inscribed on one side of each card, such as “D” for “detective,” “M” for “murderer,” and “V” for “victim” (victim). Only one M card and one D card are permitted. Whoever must determine the murderer’s identity receives the detective card. With a knowing nod, the killer ensures that its victims meet a spectacular end, and as they do, everyone chugs a beverage. There are two possible outcomes: either everyone dies, or the detective figures out who did it. The killer, on their part, has to identify the detective to save their life. They have to drink three times if they accidentally murder the detective.

9. Death By Pumpkin

The first of our Halloween-themed alcoholic beverage parlor games is a twist on a classic card game. The standard variant has players conceal their cards beneath a beer can in the center of the table. You have to do this if you take a card from this stack. Next, each participant contributes a portion of their beverage to a plastic pumpkin sitting in the middle of the table. Next, pass around the cards and have each player reveal their hand; if anybody shows a 6, 10, Jack, Queen, King, or Ace, they must drink from the pumpkin.

8. Wrap-A-Mummy

It’s time for some boozy team-building activities at the Halloween party! You and your pals will need to supply a lot of toilet paper and split into small groups of twos or threes to play this game. After everyone on a team has been handed a toilet paper roll, they take turns deciding who will be the mother and handle the wrapping. Then, on Go!, the competition to see who can cover their mummy from root to tip the quickest begins. The losing team, who are the slowest, must all consume their beverages at once.

7. Halloween Beats

It’s time to get up and dance. Everyone sits in a circle and chooses a Halloween character to portray, along with a hand signal to indicate which role they will be playing. A zombie, for instance, may make a sweeping motion with both arms or bob their head from side to side. A phantom may do a full-body jiggle. Cats’ paws are so sharp because they use them as claws. Then have them do the “We Will Rock You” thigh-slapping and clapping dance. The player who has been designated as a starter maintains the rhythm and joins in with another player’s gesture. The zombie slap and the witch slap are two such examples. If you use the witch-hand motion, you get to go first. If someone screws up a signal, they have to drink, and if someone messes up the rhythm, they all have to drink.

6. Halloween Costume Bingo

As for what to wear for Halloween, there are specific bets: a witch’s cap, a broom, a cat, eerie makeup, attempting to seem like a zombie, etc. As additional people attend your party, you may keep playing this game. For example, suppose someone shows up dressed as a witch, vampire, or zombie or carrying an item associated with Halloween. In that case, everyone in the room except the person who saw the outfit must take a drink simultaneously. When the bell chimes, everyone in the room, even the one who noticed it, must take a drink.

5. Thriller Flip Cup

To play this game, you must dig down a copy of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” (the game’s title track) and play it at maximum volume. Next, everyone dances around a tabletop to the rhythm of the song, and afterward, when it stops, they all take a swig from the cup next to them and overturn it. Whoever’s cup is successfully flipped last loses. After that, the music starts back up, and whoever has made it thus far in the most rounds wins.

4. Halloween Cocktail Contest

This unique take on traditional Halloween party drinking games requires participants first to prepare their drink while racing against the time before downing it. Next, prepare a bar with a variety of liquors (vodka, rum, etc.), mixers (Cola, soda, fruit juices, etc.), and garnishes (fruit slices, leaves). Place players actively participating in each round across from those who are not, and give everyone Five minutes to make the most spectacular cocktail ever. At the end of the five minutes, have everyone try each drink and cast their choice for the one they liked best.

3. Ghost Ping Pong

You and your pals will require a huge white bedsheet (also known as the Ghost), and you should form teams of even numbers, with each team holding opposing ends of the sheet. Each team has one goal: to move the ping pong ball to the other team’s side of the sheet. When this happens, all of the opposing team members must take a drink. If the ball drops off the sheet, everyone has to drink. After five rounds of play, the losing team is eliminated. This is not your standard fare for boozy fun at a Halloween party, but it has many spooky good times!

2. Halloween Never

This is a trick-or-treating version of the standard Never Have I Ever game, and it’s a great way to test your mental agility on Halloween. Gather everyone around in a circle and have the first person start by making a statement that begins with “I’ve never.” One example would be “I’ve never been on a motorcycle,” and the rest of the players would have to guess the rest of the statement. If anybody at the table has ridden a motorcycle, everyone must drink; if no one has, the person making the assertion must drink. You win the game if you can create a sentence that simultaneously makes everyone chug a beverage.

1. Eyeball Pong

This is the best option if you’re looking for a simple yet entertaining Halloween drinking game to play with your friends. Put some eyes on some white ping pong balls using a Sharpie. Take these balls and play a game of beer pong after you’re done. Red punch, rather than the traditional beer, will help set the mood for Halloween.
