When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

1. Nope
2. Zombies
3. Never had it but it sounds bad.
4. I prefer to try and play new Essen games where possible (though it happens rarely these days).
5. In his house in R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits, dreaming!
6. None of the bars on your list come even close to those we have in the UK: Topic, Twirl, Cadbury's Caramel, Flake, Wispa, Boost... even the basic Mars bar is better!
7. I've seen many of the movies on the list.. but The Ring is one of the scariest I've seen. (Though one of the few movies where I walked out of the cinema was Saw)
8. I don't tend to do costumes (but will dress up my avatar)
9. My #1 game - Arkham Horror
10. Neither

Starbursts barely have more votes than Twizzlers? I am never coming to any of your houses for trick or treat.

I make an effort to play Halloween themed games in October. My favorite Halloween themed game is Betrayal at House on the Hill.

kiss- "Why not both" -zombie

Edit: oh, and one of my favorite candies is Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, but the mini ones they have for Halloween are NOT THE SAME. They are made of WAX.

Great poll!!

1) I really don't go out of my way for Halloween. It's my Father-in-law's b-day, so we usually celebrate that instead.
2) vampires are much more scary and can fly!
3) Candy corn is ok, but it overstays it's welcome in a hurry.
4) Every year I think I'm going to get my horror games out and every year I fail.
5) Oh no, there's goes Tokyo. Go, go Godzilla! (are there any Cthulu songs?)
6) Butterfinger is #1
7) No movie has ever scared me as much as the original Halloween.
8) I only dress up if I get coerced.
9) I think out of that bunch of games, I'd play ghost stories before anything else.
10) Scary for me...

1. I don't anymore. I used to...pub crawls, costumes, the works. Halloween makes it really hard for me to stay sober so I pass now.

2. Vampires. I have won prizes for my vampire costumes in the past.

3. Actually, I'm just meh on candy corn. I will have some but I don't crave it nor will I buy it.

4. I think in the past we have done horror games in honor of the holiday but I don't think we will go out of our way to play one.

5. Cthulu because, sure.

6. M&Ms and Hersheys. mmmm

7. Exorcist, hands down.

8. No costume.

9. Zombicide

10. Scary!

I skipped voting this time as there were too many questions I could not answer.

Non-American (a mere 95% of the world's population), so we do not celebrate Halloween and I do not know what Candy Corn is. Similarly, I have not heard of a good chunk of the 'pick your favourites' (I have Food Chemical Intolerance and cannot eat chocolate anyway, so moot point). I find the horror genre boring, so have not seen most of those films or played most of those games.

1. Not really. My wife likes to carve a pumpkin and give out candy.
2. Neither, but if forced to choose - vampires.
3. Nasty stuff.
4. I may play a game on Halloween, but I generally don't try to be thematic in what I play if I should be able to get a game in...
5. Cthulhu
6. I don't eat chocolate. I would choose Starbursts and Skittles.
7. The original Alien when it first came out was one of the most intense movie experiences I have ever seen.
8. I don't tend to do costumes
9. Ghost Stories
10. Neither, but if forced to choose - scary.

I can assure you we didn't. Sexy costumes are revolting and, let's be honest, female only.

So fuck 'em.

Well, you heat it up in the sun or in the microwave for a really short amount of time, and it makes them all soft and tasty. ... Hey! You don't get to say it's weird until you've tried it.
