Crypt Keeper's Crypt Halloween Party Game

Halloween is our favorite time of year.  We always go all out with decorations, activities,  and games.  This game was a big hit with the family.  

It is so much fun and you can change it up to match any holiday or theme.

You will need:
2-4 cauldrons (you could use garbage cans or buckets)

A bone for each player (we like to do 2 turns each, so we do twice as many bones)
Optional: life size skeleton

How to Play:

Have the group split into two teams.
Line up the teams on one side of the room or yard.

Place a cauldron with enough bones for each team member inside it in front of each team.
Place a cauldron on the other side of the room or yard.

Each team member must race one at a time, waddling with the bones between their legs or thighs, to the cauldron across the room or yard. No Hands!

The players must drop the bones into the cauldron and run back to their team.  If the bone was dropped anytime before the cauldron they must start over.  If the bone does not land in to cauldron, you must start over.

Once the player has returned, the next player can go.
Repeat until all the players have had a turn.

The first group to finish is the winner.

If you want to soften the fall, you can put spider webs, cotton balls or batting in the bottom of the cauldron.  This might look like smoke.

There are many different ways to play this game.

Witches Brew
Gather up all your fun unbreakable Halloween decorations for ingredients for your witches Brew.  We used a plastic skull, foam pumpkin, squishy shrunken head, plastic rat, plastic body organs, brain, yellow ball for the moon, fake fruit, doll, spiders, Scorpions, plastic potion bottles, crystal balls (glitter filled water balls),  etc.

Pumpkin Plop
Foam or mini pumpkins & gourds of different kinds.


Sewer Rats
Sewer  rats into a small metal garbage can.

You can use ping pong eyes, inflatable eyes, or paint some small balls into eyes.

Werewolf Droppings
Like the Poop the Potato game.  Here's a Link to their video.  But, they didn't create the game, it's actually been around for quite a while.  It was a good reminder from childhood, and we decided to play it for our family party. We later played it at my daughter's birthday party.  They loved it!

*This game is definitely one of those games that depending on who you are playing it with, it's either a big hit or a big miss.   People either think it's hilarious or just gross. 
*Play with silly crazy fun people only.

Spiders into a Web
I would use large spiders or bugs, and drop them into a net (looks like a web)

You could use Halloween stuffed animals or bean bags.  
The possibilities are limitless.
