    Making Your Parties Spooktacular for Halloween!

    Ever been to a Halloween shindig where the host thrusts an alcoholic beverage in your hand and shows you to the snack table then . . . that's pretty much it. How long did you stay? Long enough to watch Uncle Harry gets blitzed and hit on the neighbor's wife? Well, make your own Halloween party 1000% better by getting this book.

    I can assure you these are not kidie games in the least. "Monster Parties and Games" takes you through some of your favorite movies like "The Wolf Man" in the first section which covers classic movies to a "GhostBusters" based game in the Dark Comedy section. Finally you end up with several choices in the Modern Horror and Science Fiction section like "A Nightmare on Elm Street" or "Resident Evil". The games themselves require you to photocopy things like cards and game sheets from the book. Still other require you to personalize the game a bit with your own props and game pieces. Everything is detailed in the book - another massive one at 218 pages - and Kullstroem has left no detail unthought of when it comes to the game play. With a little preparation - and this book - you can make your Halloween party - or really any monster themed party done at any time of the year like birthdays - one that is really memorable in the minds of your guests.
