Game Box Cover

Every fun game needs a cute box to store it in, right?! I mean, you definitely have to protect all the family fun from vampires, werewolves, and monsters! Or at least from little hands who might lose or damage your playing cards.

Since we like keeping things easy around here, I’m going to let you in on a little secret… this game box is actually an empty Altoids tin! Yup, just grab an old tin of your favorite mints, clean it out, and attach the printable game box cover to the outside! You can even paint your tin first if you want to match the colors!

Mad Gab Halloween Game Cards

Let’s creep it real. You can’t exactly have a Halloween game night without the game cards, right? So, we created 20 printable Mad Gab playing cards for you to use!

Here’s how to play:

Halloween Mad Gab can be played with two teams or one-on-one. First, you’ll put all of the cards in a pile, facedown. Whichever team is up first will choose a card from the top of the pile and say the phrase on the card out loud. Then, they have a set time (you can decide what you think is best based on the age of the players–20 seconds, 30 seconds, etc.) to try and get their team or the other person to guess what the Halloween-inspired words or phrases are using the “clues” on the cards. To clarify, the “clues” are just the words on the card that sound like real words. Saying them faster or slower sometimes helps reveal the correct phrase.

Note: the correct answer is located on the bottom of the card. If the person reading the card is also guessing the result, they should cover up the answer while they’re playing.

If you or your team gets a phrase correct before your time limit is up, draw another card from the pile and continue playing. Keep track of the number of Mad Gab cards each team guessed correctly, because the team with the most cards at the end of the game will be declared the WINNERS!

  1. I love this idea. Would it be possible to include a set of cards that does not include the answers? I would love to play this with my husband but it will be hard to print and cut out the cards without seeing the answers.

    1. We are so happy that you love it! Unfortunately we cannot make any changes to our printables once we have published them…so sorry!
