Enjoy the Halloween holiday with some fun free party games and activities.
Murder in the Dark is a simple Halloween theme party game to play.
MURDER IN THE DARK: Party ideas like playing the Murder in the Dark game suggest a secondary motif - mystery - for Halloween decorations. The game will be easier if playing cards are used for party favors. It is great for kids and adults alike and has to be played with at least 5 people. You will need to take a deck of cards and pick out one ace, one jack, and one queen. You will only need enough cards for each player to have one in his or her hand. Pass out the cards one per player and tell them not to show it to anyone. Explain that the person with the jack is the murderer, the person with the queen is the victim, and the person with the ace is the detective, and all other players are innocent bystanders. The detective will have to leave the room while the murderer and victim reveal themselves to the rest of the group. The victim will scream: that is the detective's cue to enter the room. The detective will ask each person to tell about his or her alibi, then that person will ask the others the same question again. The innocent bystanders will say the exact same thing but the murderer will need to change one word in his or her story. The detective must pay careful attention to each player to figure out who is the murderer. If the detective gets it right, he wins. If he can't guess, then the murderer wins. Other party tips include using Halloween or Mystery party supplies and invitations could be of either theme. The occasion will be remembered by all who attend as one of the best parties ever.
