Object of the
Game: Collect points for your
team by guessing what scary words drawn pictures stand for.
What You Do: If you are familiar with the game of Pictionary,
then you'll know what to do. If not, a short explanation: Pictionary is a game played by
two teams of people. One team sends a person up to aboard to draw a word in picture, they
have to guess what it is. This is a Halloween version of that game.
Before the party, make slips of paper with
Halloween words such as Mummy, Tombstone, Bats, Vampires, Jack-O-Lantern, Spider, Witch,
Black Cat, Candy Corn, etc. Place them in a bowl of some kind, (a plastic child's pumpkin
for trick or treating works great).
Divide the party goers into two teams. One
player from the first team starts by picking a slip of paper from the bowl. Use a
chalkboard, erasable marker board, or large pad of drawing paper and pen to draw
items related to the word, players can not write the word or draw the
exact picture of the word. Their team tries to guess what the
word is. Set a 2 minute time limit. The other team goes next. Keep rotating until
everyone has a chance to draw.
You can keep score and have one team win, or just play for
the fun of it. This is also a fun game to play using titles of horror
films. Do it the same way but use movies like Halloween, Dracula, The
Wolfman or any horror film.
