In our previous post, we talked about ways to get your server in the Halloween spirit. This included movies nights and scary story contests. But that’s not all you can do! There are plenty of other spooky activities that you can do entirely from your Discord server. The holidays are a great chance to get people engaged in your community. ## Scary Game Giveaways When running a contest of any kind, an inexpensive but on-theme prize could be a horror game. There are a lot of horror games out there, that may help the winners of your contest get into a frightful mood. Popular horror games include Alien: Isolation, Outlast, Soma, Layers of Fear, P.T., FEAR, and The Evil Within, although there are plenty of others! Consider looking in the bargain bin of Steam to find cheap, hilariously awful horror games that are under $5. ## Costume Contests Speaking of contests, what other contests would be good for a Discord server around Halloween? Well, a costume contest, duh! Considering the popularity of anime and video games in Discord servers, it should come as no surprise that cosplay is a pretty big deal. Running a costume contest in your server will result in a bit more than just store-bought costumes! Expect really elaborate entries that are certainly worthy of getting a horror game as a prize. ## Spooky Roleplaying Murder mysteries are usually done in person, over a fancy dinner, but why not do some spooky roleplaying in Discord? It can be a traditional murder mystery that someone writes up, or you can offer a mini Dungeons & Dragons campaign built around a Halloween-themed encounter. This may require creativity, but there are plenty of great adventures online already. Halloween is a great chance to engage with your Discord community. Not everyone loves Halloween but plenty of people enjoy getting scary and into the holiday spirit. Let us know if you’re partaking in any fun Halloween events in your Discord server!
