Trick or Treat


Gangs of monsters compete to see who’s the scariest in this Halloween party game for 8–24 monsters. This includes, free of charge, a non-Halloween-themed version of the game. Written by Peaky Games. Recommended for ages 8+.


In the haunted county of Hallowshire, gangs of monsters compete to see who can become the best monster gang – and the gang with the most treats wins!

Trick or Treat is a Halloween party game for 8 to 24 monsters of all ages and any gender – but particularly suited to ages eight and up.

Trick or Treat comes bundled with Monster Mash, which is the same game as Trick or Treat but without the Halloween theme – so it can be played at any time of year.

How does Trick or Treat work?

Trick or Treat is for 6 to 32 kids aged eight and up. (You can play with younger kids – but they may need adult help. You can also play with older kids – they’ll probably have as much fun as the younger ones.) All the characters are ungendered.

Everyone is organized into gangs who must work together to create potions and win the contests. The gang with the most treats wins!

The step-by-step instructions explain how to tailor Trick or Treat to suit the number of monsters coming to your party.

Trick or Treat lasts about an hour and is ideal as part of a larger party – such as a birthday or Halloween party. Two or three adults are needed to run the party, and someone must prepare everything beforehand.

What else you’ll need for Trick or Treat

When you buy our party game kit, the only extra thing you need is some treats – plastic coins, poker chips, coloured plastic gems. How much you need depends on how large your party is, but about 15 per child should be plenty. You will also need some pens, rulers and other craft materials.

We also recommend awarding prizes to the best monster gang (along with individual prizes such as best costume) – perhaps skulls, plastic skeletons, or costume items.

Apart from that, you’ll probably want monster-themed decor for the room where you’re having the party, monster-suitable food, costumes and so on, like for any other kids’ party.

How does Trick or Treat work? asked on 7 November 2022

Unlike most of our games, in Trick or Treat the players form teams of monsters and must compete together to be the best monster gang.

The person organizing the party runs the competitions and awards prizes – you might want more than one host, if you have a lot of players.

What does the host do? asked on 28 October 2022

Before the party, the host:

  • Buys the game and downloads the files.
  • Reads the instructions and other material (including character sheets) so that they have a good understanding of the game and how it works.
  • Sends out invitations.
  • Prints the character information and prepares the team envelopes.
  • Prints out other material that will be needed during the party.

The host might also be responsible for sorting out the venue and refreshments – or that may be done by others.

During the party, the host:

  • Meets and greets everyone.
  • Asks the players to form monster gangs, and gives them their team envelopes.
  • Reads the introduction and explains how the party works.
  • Adjudicates competitions.
  • Awards any prizes.

The host might also be involved in serving food and drinks – but it's often better if others are responsible for that.
