|Object of the game: You pass around paper cups to your guests while telling the story
below. Do it in the dark or in a semi dark room and tell them they can't look in the cups.
The cups are filled with "gross body parts" (food) and guests have to
guess what it really is.
You Need: Paper cups. Peeled
grapes or olives, peeled stewed tomatoes, piece of uncooked liver or similar meat, wet
corn silk or yarn, catsup, latex glove, gelatin, cold spaghetti, pickle, chicken grissle
or hotdog end. Papers and pencils.
What To Do: Ahead of time, prepare the cups that are described below. Have
everyone sit in a circle, then shut out the lights and start the story. You have to have
the room dark so that people cannot see what's inside of the cups. You can pass out
paper and pencil a the beginning of the game and let them write down their guesses between
each cup or you can have each player guess out loud between each cup. At the very
end of the game, you can tell them what is in each cup, but wait until the end!!
Tip: Check out your local dollar store and pick up some festive Halloween paper
or plastic drinking cups or glasses to add to the game!

use a dried apricot or similar dried fruit
This is his nose. T'will never smell a rose.
use the end of a pickle, a hot dog or a soft chicken bone or grissle
These worms are all that's left to feel. For them Hal O. Ween was
a lovely meal!
use cold, wet spaghetti
After the lights back on and everyone has finished writing down
their guesses, collect the papers. As you check their guesses, you can show everyone what
was really in the cups. Give a nice prize to the person with the most correct answers.
