- Recommended for: Grades 4-7
- Format: PPT only (does work with Google Slides or Open Office)
- Editable: YES, everything except game board is editable
- Number of slides: 52
- Lesson duration: about 45 minutes
- This game is NOT compatible with Google Slides. The game board dollar amounts do not disappear in Google. This is important to game play.
- Open source software (OpenOffice, LibreOffice, etc) – Some users have reported problems with the trigger animations when using this game with open source software. That means the game board dollar amounts might not click, might not go to the right slide, or might not disappear. I do not recommend using open source software for this game.
- For best results, your PowerPoint version should be at least 2016 or later. Earlier versions of PPT do not support the feature that allows game board dollar amounts to disappear.
- Not sure your version of PPT? You can test the game (link above). If your dollar amounts disappear when you return to the game board, then your PowerPoint version is compatible with this game.
Change the “dollar amounts” to number of pieces of candy. This is a great way to entertain your own children at a Halloween party or if the weather is too bad for trick-or-treating.
- 25 questions and answers (50 slides)
- All text is editable. You can change or reword any question, answer, header, or dollar amount.
- Every question and answer slide has a photo to go with it.
- PowerPoint (2016 or later is best)
- Large screen TV or projector with screen–students need to be able to see the game slides from their desks.
- I cannot emphasize enough that this is a PowerPoint game. It is not compatible with other software.
No prep necessary! This Halloween Trivia Game is ready to go out of the box.

- Every question and answer slide contains real photos.
- Many photos are public domain; a few are paid stock photos. Links to photo sources are included in the Notes section of each slide.
- Easy-to-follow suggested play (this is how I play the game with my students)
- Once a dollar amount is selected, it disappears from the game board.
