Welcome to our Halloween Trivia game for adults! Halloween Trivia is a game that adults can play too to have some fun with friends during Halloween! Test your knowledge about scary movies, superstitions, and other Halloween activities and traditions with a game of Halloween Trivia!
How to play Halloween Trivia Game
To play a Halloween Trivia Game, you first need to prepare your questions just like you would in an ordinary Trivia Game. Naturally, these questions should be related to Halloween.
You also need to assign one of the players to act as a game master who will read the questions and moderate during the game. Before you start, depending on how many players there are, decide if you will all play as individuals or if the players will be split into groups.
Once the players have been decided, the game master will start reading the questions which can be read from printed question cards or a ready list of questions on a mobile phone or tablet.
Players can either write their answers on pieces of paper, or they can have a buzz-in system on who gets to answer first. The team/player with the most number of points by the end of the game wins!
Want to spice things up? Make the losing players drink a Halloween-inspired cocktail!

There are many ways of adding a drinking element to a game of Trick or Treat for adults. For this Trick-Or-Treat Shots game, you will have to add a bit of trickery to your drinks menu.
To play Trick-Or-Treat Shots, create a round of identical-looking shots and line them up. One can have alcohol while the other short is non-alcoholic. For example, your drinks could be an alcoholic and a virgin Bloody Martini. You can also try apple juice vs white wine.
What’s important is that they look similar enough to trick your guests! This is a fun and easy way to get your guests in a Halloween party mood! Then grab a dice and start playing!
How to Play Trick-Or-Treat Shots
As soon as you lined all the shots up in a row, you assign a number to each shot. If you’re playing with one dice, you need six shots. But if you have two dice, you could also prepare twelve shots at once. However, you want!
Then it’s time to roll the dice: All players roll the dice and drink the shot with the assigned number. If the glass is already empty, they roll again!
4. Halloween Charades
There’s a reason why Charades is popular with people of all ages. You can easily customize a game of Charades to suit a theme such as Halloween!
It’s also a fun way to bring out your friends’ competitive natures as everyone shows off their acting skills and Halloween knowledge! You can have a lot of categories for Halloween such as horror movies, Halloween activities, scary TV shows, and other spooky stuff!
How to Play Charades
The first thing you should know about playing Charades is that it’s all about players guessing a word or phrase that is being acted out by a player from another team. Keep in mind also that the actor is not allowed to talk while they’re acting out the word or phrase which makes it more challenging! During the game, players take turns being the actor and the guesser.
If the one who’s guessing gets the answer right, their team gets points. If they make a wrong guess, the other teams will have the chance to guess the answer and get the points instead.
Players can also decide on how they will give their answers. They can either write their answers on a piece of paper, or they can compete on who raises their hand or presses the buzzer first to get a chance to answer.
The team with the most points at the end of the game wins! Here’s a tip: Before you start playing, make sure to agree on the categories in scope so that you still have an idea on what’s going on!
