Halloween is right around the corner, or if you’re reading this at a later date, it’s coming up sooner or later! In either case, here are some ideas of fun Halloween party games for teens to play. Some of the games may require extra stuff, others can be played with nothing more than a group of willing participants.

Let’s get right into it, here are some fun games to set up for a Halloween party with teenagers.

5. Bobbing for Apples

  • Players: Unlimited, one at a time
  • Stuff needed: A bucket or a pail (you could even use an empty sink) and apples

This is a pretty classic party game because it’s stood the test of time. You fill up a bucket, a container of some sort, a Rubbermaid, whatever with water. Put a few apples in it, and players have to try to pick up an apple from the bucket using their mouths and teeth. You can put some red food coloring or juice into the water to make it look like blood, too, which gives this game a spooky Halloween twist.

You can keep score by timing how quickly everyone is able to get their apple out, where the fastest time is obviously the winner.

4. Apple Race

  • Players: 2-6, or more depending on the size of your area
  • Stuff needed: Apples

If you’ve got some apples leftover from the previous game, set them up along the floor a few feet apart. Players get onto their knees and have to push the apple from point A to point B using nothing but their noses. This game can get pretty hectic, and it’s good to make sure you have a large enough room, you don’t want to end up with any collisions that lead to sore faces.

3. Wrap The Mummy

  • Players: Groups of 2 (if there’s an odd number of people, you coudl wrap two of them together at the same time
  • Stuff needed: Toilet paper rolls

Everyone splits into groups of two people, and each group needs a roll of paper towels. The first person holds the first paper towel on the roll in their hand while the other person holds the rest of the roll. The first person either spins in a circle, until the whole roll is wrapped around them, or the second person holding the roll runs around them in circles – just make sure everyone is playing the same way!

If the roll rips, they lose that round. It’s the first team to unravel the whole roll and wrap one of the team members from head to toe, just like a mummy.

2. Fear Factor

  • Players: Any number
  • Stuff needed: Just stuff from around the house

Think of a series of little challenges that people can do, kind of like the show fear factor but not nearly as intense unless you want to ruin some friendships!

This version can have things like reaching into hole in the side of a shoebox to try to guess what’s inside, you could use things like gummy worms, slime, grass clippings, fake spider webs, and whatever else.

1. True Crime Trivia

  • Players: Any number
  • Stuff needed: Just a bit of time to gather questions

If you want to freak people out a bit and play a game that’s genuinely scary, look up some facts and stats about various true crime murders, serial killers, and all of that. It’s scarier than generic horror movies because it’s all true stories. Here, here and here are a few existing quizzes that you can borrow some questions from (we won’t tell them!)
