~How Trick or Treat Cards Work~

The trick and treat game pieces are hidden along with all the other game pieces.  Below are examples of each.

The TREAT cards are all worth points and can be used like money throughout the game.  Teams can barter and purchases other needed game pieces using their TREAT cards. 

The TRICK cards are what makes this game interesting.  If a player finds a TRICK card they can give it to anyone they want and that person has to follow the rules of the card.  All the TRICK cards contain a different "curse" that the player must act out until that curse is broken.  Some of the curses include;

  • The Curse of the Zombie where players must walk with their knees locked..
  • The Curse of Broadway where players must sing anything they want to see.
  • The Curse of Molasses where players must move is slowww motion.

How to Break a Curse?

Now curses can be broken and players may return to their former glory.  This brings me to the last and final type of card in the Halloween hunt.  The CURSE BREAKER.  If a player finds a CURSE BREAKER card they can use it to break their own curse, break the curse of a fellow teammate, or sell and barter it to another team for more clue cards.
