Old School Scary is a Halloween-themed slide-driven trivia game. Answer correctly to capture the monsters and bring your team to safety.


These old-school monsters might appear less than scary, but these classic icons still pack a punch when it comes to trivia knowledge.

Old School Scary is a great resource for bringing a seasonal flare to any program. The game plays like simple trivia, but the questions are less than easy. Once you assemble a small team, work together to declare your answer. If answered correctly, your team gets to “capture” that old-school monster. Capture 5+ monsters to consider your team safe. An alternate way to play is to start each team with three lives. If the question is answered incorrectly, the team will have to forfeit one life. See which team can outlast the rest. May luck be with you as you battle this classic lineup of monsters.

This Resource Includes:

  • Complete PowerPoint game file
  • Individual (15 Q&A + instructions) game slides (jpeg files)
  • Video intro (mp4 file)
  • Printable 3-lives sheet (pdf file)
  • How to play document (pdf file)
  • Title slide (jpeg file)

About this Product
There are over 15 old school monsters included in this game, so feel free to include or disregard any slides based on taste or audience. There is also a PDF file included if you would like to provide each team with “three lives.” This will encourage movement in the room as teams will have to bring you a life if the question is missed.
