- The number of paper plates will depend on the number of players. You should also set an empty bowl beside each paper plate.
- Once the table is ready, have the players sit or stand in front of the table.
- When the game officially starts, the players will need to find all the gummy worms in their plates of whipped cream without using their hands!
- They can only use their mouths to get the gummy worms and drop them in the empty bowl.
- The first player that finds all the worms wins!

Mafia is a fun mystery game that you can play at your Halloween party!
Your friends can test their detective skills to catch which of your friends are lying, or they can try out their acting chops and pretend that they are innocent civilians! Warning! Things can get pretty chaotic when you play mafia!
Start your game of mafia by assigning roles to the players. Your game master is the mayor/narrator. The mayor will assign who will be the mafia members and the civilians. A good ratio is to have 3 mafia members to 7 civilians.
How to Play Mafia
- The mayor will tell all the players to close their eyes and will signal 3 people to be the mafia members.
- The mayor calls out, “Mafia, wake up”, and the chosen mafia players will open their eyes so that they know each other.
- Before the civilians wake up, the mafia members will choose 1 civilian to be killed.
- The mayor tells everyone to wake up and informs them that one of the civilians has been killed.
- The civilians can ask questions, suspect each other to figure out who the mafia members are. The mafia members will pretend to be civilians so that they will not be discovered.
- The civilians will have to kill one of the players who they think is a mafia member. If their guess is right, the mafia loses one of its members. If their guess is wrong, they lose a civilian.
- The game will go through steps 3-6 again until all 3 mafia members are discovered. If this happens, the civilians win! If at the end of the game, there are more mafia members than civilians left, the mafia wins!
