Hangman may seem like an obvious game for Halloween, but I’ve never seen it mentioned by anyone before. It’s a fun game for small and large groups and easy enough to play that you can get the kids involved.
Basic hangman rules:
- Draw a scaffold on a large sheet of paper or board for all your guests to see.
- Place a dash under the scaffold for each letter of the word or phrase your guests are going to try to discover.
- Guests call out letters, on their turn, and if the letter is in the word or phrase then place it in the correct dash space.
- If the guest calls a letter out that isn’t in your word or phrase then you write the letter above the scaffold and draw a body part, beginning with the head and working your way down until a completed person is hanging there, in which case the guests lose.
- At any time during their turn a guest may try to guess the word or phrase and win the game. If they guess incorrectly they are out.
- Use halloween words or phrases from well known Halloween movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Disney version) or It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.
- Hang monsters instead of people; you could hang witches, mummies, sea monsters with tentacles, skeletons, vampires, etc.
