More Halloween fun to ignite your dinnertime conversation!


For more instructions, refer to the Getting Started post.


#14 - A skeleton walks into a library, but he quickly learns it isn't like the library he remembers from his past. Each book is able to come to life when touched by a human. How does he lure a human into this library? Which book does he want opened first? What happens when the human accidentally (or on purpose) opens the wrong book?


#15 - Lord Hallow directs his troupe of evil goblins to disrupt and destroy Billy's Halloween party, which is subsequently also Billy's 9th birthday party. The two have had clashes before on this beloved night, so Billy is prepared to stop Lord Hallow before he strikes. What does Billy have planned? Do his guests help? Does Lord Hallow also have a few tricks up his sleeve?


#16 - The smell of children is in the air. The sound of their candy-fueled laughter haunts her. Miss Valerie knows most of the children all too well since she is a 2nd grade teacher at the elementary school. Little do they know their favorite teacher spends Halloween night spying on them from above. Being a vampire isn't easy, and it gets even harder when the naughtiest kid in school captures her. How does Miss Valerie get caught? How does she get away? Is the kid really naughty or does she discover something unexpected about him?


#17 - A crazed woman loves Spongebob Squarepants gummy krabby patties so much that after her six kids go to bed on Halloween night, she raids their candy bags and eats every one she finds. The next morning, she wakes up with a terrible stomachache. The kids don't have much sympathy for her after they discover what she's done. To get back at her, what advice do they give to help her feel better? Swallow a goldfish? Drink toilet water? Eat black licorice? Get creative with your answers!
