Want to do something different at your Halloween party this year?  Try a game that is better than Charades and can be spookier than the Ouija board! Try a Halloween Roleplaying game!
Roleplaying games have become extremely popular with college age men and women. They meet weekly and come up with scenarios, characters and create complex plots that continue over several weeks. One person acts as the leader to set and enforce “rules of play” and who is responsible for keeping the record of all that goes on.
The Halloween roleplaying I am suggesting is much less complex and easier to do. You can copy some “adventure seeds” or what we teachers used to call “story starters” on index cards and each player adds to the story. Characters can be introduced and twists and turns can be added. The group may work as small teams or individuals. A timer is set for 15 minutes and when time is up, the story must be given a conclusion. Prizes can be given for the best conclusion, the best character created or the cleverest contribution to the plot.
Here are some sites to help you come up with adventure seeds!
