What are some games that would fit well with a Halloween party?

I am assuming that we:

1. Want to try to include 6 to 12 people at a time
2. Be a 30 minute or less game
3. Take no more than 15 minutes to teach
4. Any genre (cards, dexterity, board, etc....)
5. Have a Halloweeny theme (bonus for this)


Games I am already considering:

1. Cards Against Humanity (fast, easy, funny, can include a lot of people)
2. Bisikle (but how do I give it a Halloweeny theme?)
3. Busen Memo
4. Eat Poop You Cat
5. King of Tokyo (easy to teach and play)
6. Name 5 (easy for large groups)
7. Trick r Treat (theme is right)
8. Drunkquest

Don't forget Zombie Dice. Man, I just wish City of Horror can be done in 30mins, it's perfect for Halloween.

Liar's Dice - you can find rules online for free, 5 dice per person, and some Solo cups.

Zombie Dice

Ultimate Werewolf: Ultimate Edition

or maybe Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition

Friday the 13th

Kill Doctor Lucky

Ghooost!

We've hosted a Halloween party for the last 6 years or so, and we've played most of these for it. They always go over really well.

Shadow Hunters - say it's Clue but you actual get to use the weapons.


Betrayal at House on the Hill - this game does not meet your time criteria (60 minutes). However it is a light game that is easy to teach. Some of it's major complaints is that it plays itself. However it is very good at presenting the experience of just wandering in a haunted house. I recommended sitting out the first game and serving as a referee if they don't grasp the concept of a skill check.

Here's a Kickstarter to a cool Halloween game. It's called Witch Hunt. I think its up to 10 players. They say they can get it to your house by Halloween if they can meet the goal by October 16th. Check it out!
