If you think you've reached the age of board games, think again! We have reorganized some Halloween tricks and tricks for audiences 21 and older. So, get a suit, an adult drink or two, and have fun!

You may have gone over the usual balloons and games like Spin the Bottle may have lost their thrill. Whether you are looking for a game to break the ice or a game more than fun with a frozen drink, we have it!

We created nine spooky games to fill your FrightFest. All costumes are best played in costume, and some may leave your guests really terrified, but that's fine. Because if it's time to eat, drink and be scary, it's Halloween.

Boozing for apples

Bobbing for apple is a classic harvest festival game. Of course, adults can play with the traditional fruit, but would not it be more fun to play bob for something a little less innocent?

There are two simple ways to turn this one into 21+ entertainment. You can buy a bunch of miniature alcohol bottles (the kind you get in planes). Throw them in your tub or your cask with apples and water. When a customer comes with alcohol instead of an apple, he must try his luck.

Another solution, slightly more discreet, is the decisive approach. For this, dig a small hole at the top of the apples. Fill them with a glass of alcohol, such as Fireball, and set them aside. Give them some time to absorb the alcohol, then float the spiked apples and let the games begin!

Do not say "Halloween"

Or "haunted" or "scary", or whatever you want the game to be. The idea is to create a "cursed sentence" that is related to Halloween. This game lasts all evening and, be warned, it can become intense. Make sure all guests know the phrase when they enter. A sign is perfect if you do not want to greet everyone at the door.

If someone pronounces these accursed words, he must immediately take the anti-curse! In this case, the anti-curse is, of course, an adult drink.

For a quick spin, distribute inexpensive colored beads at the start of the party. If someone hears another guest talking about the curse, he can take this guest's beads. The guest with the most collected collars at the end of the night wins the party.

Spooky treasure hunt (with photos)

This one requires a little organization, but it's a great way to organize the party. Ask the guests to form teams and give them a Halloween themed treasure hunt. But instead of limiting the hunt for stationery, add "hints". Things like "Cry on a skeleton (fake) strong enough to attract attention" or "Try a teammate's outfit" are sure to entertain.

Tell customers that they should take a photo with their phone in a group with each object or challenge. Make sure to award a prize to the most creative group photos, not just the first team.

Zombie, witch or ghost

Everyone can play together, regardless of the size of your group. Assign someone the status of "that" and make sure everyone has a drink. Then ask all the guests to get up. The person who is "that" turns around, so his back is turned to the other guests and asks, "Zombie, Witch or Ghost?

In response, everyone chooses their favorite. For zombies, guests place their arms straight in front of them, like a walking zombie. Ghosts raise their arms from one side or the other in a sinuous motion – you know, like a ghost. Those who want to be wizards place their hands over their heads in the shape of witches' hats.

The "it", without turning around, calls his choice. Whichever group she names, he has to sit down and have a drink, and they are starters for the next round. The game continues until only one person remains standing.

Adult Mummy Wrap

If you have already wrapped someone in toilet paper, you know this game. By team of two, guests should pack their partner in toilet paper as quickly as possible. A judge then determines the winning team.

To make it a little more stimulating, customers must have a drink in one hand all the time. Make sure to play this one outside or on a protective cloth: the propensity for spilled drinks is high!

Trick or Treat Shots

A bit like Russian roulette with shots, the host or the hostess has all the power. He or she creates a tray of colored glasses. Half of them are real, and heavy booze, and the other half is juice directly. The organizer of the evening then walks and asks each guest "Trick or Treat?

The King Pumpkin Cup

The King's Cup has become a classic of university consumption. Although the rules vary, the general concept is the same. Assign an action to each number of a deck of cards. For example, if a guest draws a three, it may mean that he can "give drink" to all who play. If you draw a queen, this may indicate that all women need to drink.

Then hand out the card game around the "King's Cup" in the center of the table. Instead of a chalice worthy of a king, use a waterproof plastic pumpkin. Whenever someone draws a king, she can pour all or part of her glass into the pumpkin. The person stuck with the last king or last card (according to the rules you decide to use) must drink the King Pumpkin Cup.

The mad scientist's laboratory

This is another additional pleasure for the host. Fill the bowls with items that feel to the touch. Cold and cooked pastas are always a good choice, as are lumpy Jell-O, frozen grapes, peeled boiled eggs and boiled hot dogs.

Cover the bowls so that your guests can not see what they contain. Then ask each person to take turns in what is inside. Give prizes to the best guessers and drinks at worst.

Guess the bad guy

This one is the ultimate icebreaker! Write down all the bad guys you can think of on cards. When guests enter the evening, stick a card on their foreheads without allowing them to see the villain you have assigned to them.

To guess which villain they are, guests should ask themselves yes or no questions, such as: "Could you kill me with a stake in my heart?" When the answer is no, they must drink; a yes brings them a little closer to the head of this annoying card.

Board games are not just for kids – they're fun for adults too! Playing drink games at Thanksgiving dinner might not be appropriate, but Halloween is the perfect opportunity for such things.

Whether you drink apples or pay tribute to King Pumpkin and its cup, we are sure that these board games will give you a good time.
