Who Am I? Game for Horror Fans - Fun Halloween Party Game | Game Rules




The Who Am I game is one of the most popular party games for adults. This variant is perfect for Halloween or a party with a horror theme!

In the “Who am I?” game, you stick a piece of paper on the forehead of each party guest, on which a known person or character is written, which you are now. In turn, all players with yes-or-no questions try to get knowledge about who they are as quickly as possible. Thus, the player whose turn it is asks a question and all others present answer truthfully either yes or no. For example:

Am I a real person?

Am I a human being?

Am I a movie character?

So each question may contain only one aspect, which is affirmed or denied. The winner is the player who first guesses who he is. Over is the game, however, only when everyone has cracked the riddle, which person he embodies.

In the original variant, each player thinks of a character, writes it on a piece of paper and sticks it to the forehead of the player to his left.

At Abenteuer Freundschaft you’ll find a detailed explanation of the Who Am I? game with 11 original game variations!

This variant of the popular Who Am I game is perfect as a party game at a horror or Halloween themed party. At its core, the main difference from the original game is that all players embody a person, character or creature from the theme of horror. This can be horror characters like Dracula – but also their good counterparts. Since this limits the choice here is a list of suggested characters. As the host, it’s best to choose the terms beforehand and write them down on slips of paper. Especially if many present do not know each other and can not estimate how knowledgeable the party company is in the horror genre – everyone should, after all, have the opportunity to guess who he is.
