It’s spooky season, which means it’s time to start getting your costumes on, getting your candy supplies ready, and queueing up scary movies. But with the current state of the world, Halloween parties are going to be just a memory of past years. Today we’re sharing some ways to have a great Halloween party from the comfort and safety of your computer.
Play Scary Party Games
There’s no denying how popular Among Us is right now, and it is perhaps the best party game to simulate what a normal in-personal Halloween party is like. The game supports up to 10 people, which is a solid party, and it pits a team of secret murderers against a team of innocents aboard a spaceship. It’s a classic spooky premise, and makes for a ton of fun! Dead by Daylight is another great multiplayer game that can be really spooky. It puts a single killer against a team of 4 survivors trying to escape, and it features old-school killers from Halloween and Silent Hill as well as its own characters. While a normal party might feature Cards Against Humanity, Jackbox Party Pack, or any number of other physical games, playing multiplayer games online offers a lot of additional choices! So hop in voice chat and have a great time.
Get Everyone in Costume
Just because trick or treating and Halloween parties won’t be as common this year doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get into costume anyways. In your Discord server, try creating a channel for everyone to share their costume ideas and final post of their outfits. If people are willing to get on video, have a scheduled event where everyone walks down the virtual runway in front of a panel of judges (like your server admins and mods) to judge on categories like highest effort, funniest, and more.
Someone in your server is likely to have a great spooky voice for reading creepypastas. Host a scary story reading night and have your member with the best voice read them out. Creepypastas are the internet’s favorite scary stories, and your members will love getting in the Halloween spirit this way. For even higher production-value, add a music bot into the channel and play some creepy music.
Many of us may be quarantined this Halloween and unable to do the activities we normally do this time of year, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be a boring holiday. Through the power of Discord and community, you can bring the Halloween spirit to hundreds of people.
