Create Some Halloween Fun In The Office!

Let's dive straight into our list of Halloween office games! And don't worry, there are no jump scares here...

1. Halloween Trivia

If there's one thing that gets everyone talking, it's trivia! Couple that with Halloween and you're onto a killer (no pun intended!) If you consider yourself a master of Halloween history, zombie celebs, and horror music then Halloween Trivia is perfect for you. In this spook-tacular team quiz, you and your team will put your knowledge to the test whilst also getting creative! Be sure to keep up with the fast-paced challenges and be ready to get competitive.

2. Halloween Talent Show

This one's for creative thinkers! We're talking, office stand-up comedy, juggling, singing, karaoke, the lot! A Halloween talent show is the perfect game to play in your office to lift the mood of your team and create some fun memories. It's probably best if you encourage everyone to dress up and decorate their desks as well. It's also a reasonably low-cost game that is certain to BOO-st the energy in the office! We're certain that hosting a Halloween talent show will help you learn a thing or two about your teammates!

3. Murder Mystery Games

Nothing says Halloween office games like a murder mystery! We're calling all Sherlock Holmes fans for this one. You'll need to put your detective hats on to solve some of our cases.

Take on Manor House Murder! A school reunion which has unfortunately ended in a tragic murder! An investigation has begun and it's up to you to solve the mystery. Using our interactive app, you must explore the rooms in the manor house and work your way through the evidence to catch the killer before it's too late. This Halloween game is perfect for murder mystery fans and those who love the film "Knives Out."

Do your team love Murder On The Orient Express? Then try our Murder On The Train challenge! You'll need a time machine for this murder mystery game. You'll be investigating a gruesome murder that took place on a train between Paris and Constantinople. Will your office reveal who killed the wealthy tycoon in time, or will the killer escape?

4. Pumpkin Carving

It wouldn't be a list of Halloween office games without a mention of carving pumpkins. This is a great and inexpensive way of having some Halloween entertainment. Don't worry, you don't need to be Pablo Picasso to take part in this activity! No matter how good (or bad) you are at carving a pumpkin, this game is sure to get teams having some creative fun. We suspect there will be a few questionable pumpkin carvings at the end, which is bound to create some laughs in the office!

5. Spooky Story Time

Every team has a few storytellers or chatterboxes - we believe they deserve their time in the spotlight! Halloween story time will have your office go around the group and share their spooky fact or fiction stories. We give extra kudos to those who get into character. This is certain to get your team laughing, or a little spooked. It's dependent on the quality of your groups' ghost story material. Bonus points if you include a flashlight and dim the lights!

6. Halloween Scavenger Hunt

We love any excuse for a scavenger hunt so we created one especially for All Hallows' Eve! Packed with bewitching trivia and spooky photo and video challenges, you can be sure our Halloween Scavenger Hunt is all treats and no tricks. Bring your best props and costumes and creep it real with your team - you never know what you might need to scavenge! Check out our Halloween Scavenger Hunt.

7. Halloween Bingo

Halloween + bingo. What's not to like? There are many options to host a free Halloween themed bingo activity in the office. Check out some suggestions from Woman's Day here. Halloween bingo is bound to bring out the competitive side of your team. It's also a very quick and easy game to set up so it's great for teams of all levels! We would also recommend some props, costumes, and office decorations to go with this!

8. Halloween Happy Hour

Everyone loves happy hour! A Halloween happy hour is a 'gourd' way to get your team together in the office for some silliness. It's also a great way to test your cocktail making abilities whilst taking part in some Halloween-themed entertainment. We highly recommend getting some props in the office and some costumes to go along with this activity, as well as a Halloween music playlist! Looking for something to get you started? Check out our FREE Virtual Happy Hour activity.
