Black Cat Got Your Tongue?
A game where you get a prize by catching others saying the forbidden words. I've seen this game described different ways, and most people hand out bags of candy to their guests. When one person catches another person saying a "forbidden word", they take a piece of candy from them and put it in their own bag. The problem with this? I don't know about your friends, but some of my friends would get the bag of candy and just eat it. I've adapted this to be a little trickier.
- Decide on a list of 5 to 10 words you think would be said throughout the party. They could be tied to your theme, or general Halloween words, or slang (for example, my friends would lose with sayings like "That sucks", "No way", "Whatever" and though it isn't slang, "Want a beer?"), or swearing, or a combination of these things. It would be helpful if the list of words/phrases were written on something and displayed for your guests to check throughout the night
- Everyone is given 5 tickets. Each time a person is caught saying one of the words on the list, that person has to give up a ticket. The person who has the most tickets at the end of the evening (or a time limit for the game) wins a prize.
