Ooooh woooooo, Werewolves and Puzzlin’: A Puzzly Hashtag Game

You may be familiar with the board game Schmovie or hashtag games on Twitter.

For years now, we’ve been collaborating on puzzle-themed hashtag games with our pals at Penny Dell Puzzles, and this month’s hook was #PennyDellScaryPuzzles. Today’s entries all mash up Penny Dell puzzles, magazines, and products with scary movies, costume ideas, monsters… anything spooky or Halloween-fueled!

Examples include Carrie-Overs, Fright Angles, or Ghost Star Framework.

So, without further ado, check out what the puzzlers at PuzzleNation and Penny Dell Puzzles came up with!
