You could host your spooky evening on or leading up to Halloween. With these games and the right treats your haunted happening is sure to be unlike any other. And speaking of treats…
Don’t Forget The Food!
Having the right kind of food on hand is essential. You want to have things that people can pick up and eat easily as they play through the spooky evening. Here are a few of the best snacks to have on hand when playing board games:
The ultimate finger food! Who doesn’t love a good plate of chicken wings? My husband and I have finally perfected our classic buffalo sauce…go ahead and give it a try!
I would say 99% of cheese stick lovers buy pre-made cheese sticks. Which is precisely why your guests will adore these HOME MADE cheese sticks. It is cheese perfection, and tastes just like it came out of a restaurant…except it will be your kitchen!
Ah yes, pizza. The time honored and taste tested party food. What gathering is complete without it? Skip the delivery and make it yourself with this wonderful and easy recipe. You’ll notice that it’s split into two recipes: The sauce AND the dough. Feel free to top it however you want!
No party is complete without delicious treats! All of the following treats are not only simple to make, but COMPLETELY from scratch. Fill your dessert table with goodies that are not only delicious but festive and fun as well
My recipe for creamy caramel apples is the most quintessential Halloween treat. The caramel is made with cream, brown sugar and vanilla for a very old-fashioned flavor everyone is sure to love. Roll the caramel apples through Halloween sprinkles and tie a festive ribbon around the stick for a classic and tasty treat!
Whip up a batch of yummy cupcakes and top them with these frighteningly fun cupcake toppers! The larger size gives your cupcakes a unique and festive appearance that will really stand out.
My haunted graveyard brownies are sure to be another crowd-pleaser! Who doesn’t love brownies? Especially these ones, made with extra chocolate chips for the best fudgy chocolatey brownies you’ve ever had. Each one is topped with yummy buttercream icing using the grass tip for an authentic looking graveyard. Headstones and bones scattered across the grass icing make for fun and spooktacular decorations!

In this game you get to investigate a foreboding house where there is no telling what you will find. Monsters lurking around every corner, spooks and frights of every kind. The great thing about this game is that every time you play the story is different. This makes for a new and exciting game every time!
More horror abounds as you start the next game on the list. This Lovecraftian game is perfect for fans of Lovecraft as well as anyone looking to get into the Halloween spirit! The game is set in 1926 where horrifying creatures are being unleashed onto the world. You play as a team of investigators whose sole mission is to solve the mystery of the Mythos and stop the monsters once and for all.
Another Game set on mystery and intrigue. In this game everyone wins or everyone loses! You play as a team of psychic investigators trying to solve the mystery of the murder at Warwick Manor. Ghostly visions aid you in your quest but will you be able to interpret them and solve the mystery?
This game is so much fun! And the nice thing about this one is how quickly you can play through a round. You can have a whole game finished in as little as 10-15 minutes. This makes it the ideal game for if you want the fun to continue a little longer without starting another long game. The thing is, it’s so much fun you’ll probably play round after round for hours anyway!
This game takes you on a harrowing adventure as you and a team of investigators explore Arkham. You’re in for a hauntingly good time as you make your way through the desolate halls filled with horror and madness! Any of these board games would be GREAT Halloween party ideas!
