I am doing a program for my public library in October with the theme spooky games. I have adult/older kid choices, but need some suggestions for spooky games for the 7-12 year old crowd.

I have One Night Ultimate Werewolf, but what else could I pair with that?

Thanks!

Hmm...perhaps:
Wicked Witches Way: Requires quick thinking, but it plays up to 6 with little downtime.
Witch's Brew: Secret role selection.
Friday the 13th: Granted, the theme is very pasted on it, but it is easy to play and has cute art.

Sorry, not a lot of suggestions for kids. Not really my area of expertise.

I was going to recommend Geister Geister as well but wasn't sure if it was stateside yet. Another would be Ravensburgers Whoowasit.

Seems like Fearsome Floors would be a good choice here.

Pyramid would be a great choice if you can get it (as others suggested above). The game board sits vertically and one player moves the mummy (using a magnet) to try to capture the explorers inside a pyramid.

Fearsome Floors and Midnight Party are other excellent choices.

Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions! I knew there were options out there-and I even have a couple of them but wasn't really thinking about them as Halloween.

I should have mentioned this in my prior post, but Gloom would be another great choice for a Halloween party. My 10 year old girl really enjoys this one. It is at its best when the players get creative with the storytelling while playing the cards, so it might be best for the older kids.

I picked up a game called "vampire in the night" ( vampire der nacht)a few years back, where youhave to push around pieces of garlic , which ar luminous, so you can play in the dark. My kids absolutely LOVED it. I think it would really work in a library context. By the way, the game is currently half price on Amazon Uk !!!!
