The Spooky Dating Drinking Game To Get Boo-zed Up With Your Pumpkin This Halloween

Halloween 2020 is going to be pretty different, but that doesn't mean the ghost stories have to social distance themselves. In fact, after a year like this one, what's a few more horror stories to add to the mix? If you and your partner dare, this boo-zy drinking game will definitely add a little spook into your All Hallows' Eve plans. Think you're brave enough to share your scariest dating stories with your pumpkin this October 31? You've come to the right spot.

This is the Ultimate Spooky Dating Drinking Game. Here's how it works:

The Rules Are Simple

Each person has to answer each question truthfully and if they've done what is in each number, they drink based on instructions. Oh, and...

  • Drink responsibly
  • Must be 21+ to play this game
  • Mix in some water, please and thank you

Get it? Got it? (In case you don't get it, go in order from 1 to 23 as each player answers each question and drinks if they've done the mentioned deed). Good.

Let's PLAY!

*Note: decide before the game whether you want to play the bonus round as well — which involves sharing more about these spooky dating stories. If you choose to opt in for the bonus, each player will either tell the story for that round to make their "opponent" (really their partner) drink or take the sip themselves. Things are about to get boo-zy (disclaimer).

Sometimes I Prefer The World A Bit Blurry

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.
