If you want to play Halloween Never Have I Ever without getting drunk, then Ten Fingers is the way to go. In this edition, players start the game having 10 points each.
The game begins when one player says, “Never have I ever…” and adds an action.
For example: Never have I ever watched the original Psycho movie.
If the action mentioned is something that the other players have done (watched the original Psycho movie), they need to fold a finger down. If none of the players have done the action, then the one who gave the statement folds a finger down.
Players take turns giving statements, and the same mechanics apply. Once a player folds down all their fingers, they’re out of the game. The last player who still has fingers left 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 test their acting chops and pretend that they are innocent civilians! Warning! Things can get pretty chaotic when you play mafia!
Start your Mafia game 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
If it’s your first time playing Mafia, you might get a little confused, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll see that it’s quite easy and fun to play! You’ll also be more suspicious of everyone!
Here’s how to play Mafia:
1. 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.
2. 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. Be careful! The mafia members will pretend to be civilians so that they will not be discovered.
3. After conducting their investigation, 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.
4. The game will go through steps 2 and 3 again until all 3 mafia members are discovered.
If the mafia members are discovered, the civilians win! If at the end of the game, there are more mafia members than civilians left, the mafia wins!
