This theme game again utilizes plastic vampire teeth. Have each guest put their teeth on and dip their head into a bowl of blood (red colored water) to try and retrieve an apple. Give out a fun prize for whoever does it the fastest.
ALTERNATIVE: Hang the apples with string from the ceiling and have players see who can eat their apple the fastest. The catch is they have to keep their hands behind their back the whole time.
Another fun game you can play with vampire quotes is “Slip it in” . In this game every guest is given a vampire quote when they arrive to the party that they must attempt to slip into casual conversation without someone realizing that this is there “slip it in” phrase. After a person uses their phrase they must wait 5 minutes (to give others a chance to call them out) before they can collect their prize.
You can award prizes for the first one to use their phrase, the person who catches the most “slip it in” phrases, a small prize for everyone who slips in their phrase successfully. You can even have a penalty prize for people who get caught or for people who don’t use their phrase by the end of the evening.
This is a fun party game where everyone huddles around in a circle arms over the others shoulders. Everyone puts their heads down and on the count of three looks up at another player.
If two people find that they are looking at each other then they both scream and fall down dead. They are out and the next round begins. Keep playing until only two players are left. This teen party game is best with a medium to larger group of friends.
This is another vampire adaption party game to play. On index cards write the word “VAMPIRE” on one, and the word “SLAYER” on the other. Fill in the rest with the word “VICTIM”. You should make enough cards for each player to receive one card. Everyone must sit in a circle or around a table and draw a card without showing anyone else what’s written on their card.
To play the game: The person that draws the “VAMPIRE” card can “kill off” other players by making eye contact with them and blinking their eyes at them twice. If a victim gets blinked at they must silently count to five and then pretend to die. If the vampire tries to blink at the slayer then the vampire is caught and his or her turn is over. The slayer can also end the vampires turn by catching him or her in the act in the act and calling out his or her name.
Once the vampire is caught that round is over and you can start again by passing out new cards to everyone. The winner is between the vampire and the slayer. The vampire gets a point for everyone he/she kills before they are caught and the slayer gets a point for everyone who is left after the killer is caught.
This Hilarious party game will have you and your friends rolling on the floor laughing. Players draw cards with challenges (curses) on them that they must try and complete. The more cards they must draw the more hilarious crazy challenges(curses) they must keep up with.
This party game is hysterically fun! You’ll need a baby bottle for each player. Fill each bottle with red punch,red kool-aid, or any blood colored drink. Give one to each guest whose participating and on the start of go everyone must suck the baby bottle dry. First one done is the official best blood sucker!
Nipples come in different size holes so make sure you get them all the same, and don’t get the newborn ones or it will take too long. Don’t worry the packages show the nipple sizes on the box.
This is a great party game to play at night, especially if you have a large area or woods to play in. It is not specifically a vampire game but it will fit into the theme nicely.
Divide everyone into two teams, such as vampires and werewolves. If you have over 20 players then you can divide players into smaller teams. Assign each team a color and pass out 3 “points” to each player, in their teams color. I used poker chips for points. I gave each member of the red team 3 red chips, and each member of the blue team 3 blue chips.
To play the game, give all the teams 3 minutes to spread out. The object of the game is to scare as many players from the other team as you can. Every time you scare (make them scream or jump) someone from the other team they have to give you one of their points. At the end of the game period (I suggest 30 minutes) whichever team has collected the most points from the other team wins.
This is a fun party icebreaker. Write names of famous vampires on index cards and tape one to each guest’s back as they arrive. Everyone can look at each others, but not their own. Each guest must try to figure out who they are by asking yes and no questions to other players.
