This game is not about what the kids supposed to do, rather it is about what they are not supposed to do. This game is usually for the adults, but since it can be modified, kids can play it too. So, how will you do this game?

When your guests have already arrived at the party, give them a piece of paper or card that has a list of words. The words are needed to be similar to every guest. So, these will be the jinx or forbidden words for the night. Then, when a certain guest hears another guest who uses at least one of the words, they will need to shout or yell “Jinx!” A person who said a forbidden word will be taken away their card and absolutely out of the game. The one that will be declared as the winner will be the last person who didn’t use the jinx words.

Then, you will need one item for every player. You can also place these cutouts within a circle on the table. Then, play a haunting music and turn it off and on for several times. Have the players walk in the circle standing or stepping beside the items that you have cut out. When you stop the music, everyone will freeze the items that are next to them. Remember that there should only be one player per item. Repeat the process until you already have one player left where he/ she will be declared as the winner.

Once the candy corns are all been thrown, count the number of candies that are going in the pumpkin. Switch the members and start the game again.

  1. The pumpkin hunt seems like a great idea these days. I feel like it has become harder and harder to let kids go out and trick or treat, this might be a great way to accomplish some of the same fun but in a very safe and controlled environment. You could even fill the pumpkins with candy on your own (or maybe something healthier if you care!). What a wonderful idea, thanks for sharing!

  2. The mummy wrap game looks like fun. I also like the candy corn toss… but I would put a bowl on the head to catch them. Thanks for the ideas!

  3. Wow, these are all really great games to play with friends. I am currently a UC Santa Cruz student and I am sure my dorm mates will love these. Thank you so much!

  4. HaHa ! I remember some of these from back in the days, but haven’t participated in any Halloween parties at friend’s homes lately. Your post is ideal for those looking for right itinerary for Tuesday to make the evening even more enjoyable. Thanks you !

  5. These games bring back some memories! The Jinx game sounds like fun and I love Jimmy fallon! I am going to try that one with my friends for Halloween. I think they will all enjoy it.
