RML Resources: Halloween Edition

Looking for some fun Halloween activities beyond trick or treating?

Try an old black and white horror movie!

House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Frederick Loren has invited five strangers to a party of a lifetime. He is offering each of them $10,000 if they can stay the night in a house.

The Phantom of the Opera (1925)
At the Opera of Paris, a mysterious phantom threatens a famous lyric singer, Carlotta and thus forces her to give up her role (Marguerite in Faust) for unknown Christine Daae.

Gather some friends up and play a spooky game!

Cover for the Dread RPG


Werewolf – a party game for 7-17 players, where all you need to play is a couple scraps of paper. This is a great game to play huddled around a campfire in the dark. (Video instructions here.)

Dread – a role-playing game for more ambitious gamers where you create characters, then work together to escape a horror-movie scenario created by the host. All you need is some printed character sheets and a stack of totally-not-Jenga® blocks. (See an example of the gameplay here.)

Or you could always throw a Murder Mystery Party!

Read/listen to horror stories!

Do some Halloween-themed fiber arts!スクリーンショット 2018-10-13 7.53.48.png

Do you knit? Maybe you prefer crochet? Maybe you like a bit of both?

Or you could always just try a regular craft that does not involve fiber. (I won’t tell if you won’t.)




Have a wonderful Halloween everyone! And don’t forget to come trick or treating at RML! We are open just for the holiday!
