Matching Trivia Games
Monsters / Villains make for great matching games where you list the movies on one side using numbers and other side of the page you list the monsters using letters. The person with the most correct answer wins. Have a tie breaker question just in case. Example: How many Halloween Movies have there been?:
Michael Myers = Halloween
Freddy Kruger = Nightmare on Elm Street
Hannibal Lechter = Silence of the Lambs
Jigsaw = Saw
and so on….
Fill in the Blank Monster Trivia

Place in Chronological Order Trivia Game
