Office parties can be bland during the Halloween season, so when planning an autumn office get-together, consider integrating some entertaining, yet appropriate, games for adults. Celebrating holidays in a non-offensive manner with your employees can increase morale and loyalty within the company. With a few supplies, your party can become a success by filling the room with laughter, cooperation, teamwork and memories to last until the following year's Halloween office party.

Prior to the party, give each employee a slip of paper with a one-word description of the preferred costume to be worn to the party. The employee can interpret the word in any way she sees fit and must wear clothing and accessories to represent the word. Examples of words could be "unemployed," "dapper," "president" or "mis-matched." The person with the most correct one-word written responses to others' costumes wins a Halloween prize from the company.
Organise employees into teams of four for a relay-type party game. The team works to dress-up another employee or department head as a mummy using nothing but rolls of toilet paper. Give the teams a two-minute time limit to wrap each mummy with the tissue and the most covered, most interesting and most comical team displays win Halloween prizes. Adapt the game to dress the department heads as scarecrows or zombies using straw, make-up and ripped or flannel clothing.
Employee Child Trick-or-Treat
Encourage employees to bring their children to work for a family-friendly Halloween party. Integrate games that are friendly for both children and adults such as bobbing for apples, a costume contest and candy corn jar guessing games. Allow each department to use company funds to purchase candy items as the children trick-or-treat around the office with parental chaperones. The incorporation of children may enhance employee loyalty by taking an interest in their personal lives and their family members. Ensure that each family RSVPs to ensure that there are enough materials and candy for everyone.
Devise a list of trivia questions centred on the history, modern practices and off-the-wall topics of the celebration of Halloween. Allow each employee, or group of employees, a time limit to find the answers to the questions using each other as resources or finding the answers via the Internet. The group or individual who answers the most questions correctly wins a company prize such as a company logo T-shirt, hat or coffee cup filled or attached to Halloween goodies.
