You don't have to be a teenager to love the "Twilight" saga. In "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" the main character, Bella, has many of the struggles of a typical teenager in love, but with the added twists that come from being in love with a vampire and a werewolf. There are plenty of twists in the plot that appeal to adults as well as teens, and "Twilight" fever has gripped fans of all ages. Even adults can have fun at a "New Moon"-themed party.

Dress Up

Have your guests come dressed as their favorite character from "Twilight: New Moon." Give prizes for the best costume, but also for the person who best shows the personality of each character. It's an ideal way for guests to unleash their inner Bella, Jacob or Edward.

Puzzles

Use a "Twilight Saga: New Moon" cast photo to make puzzles for your guests. Glue the photo on a thin piece of cardboard. After the glue dries, use a craft knife to cut the photo into several pieces. Repeat the process several times to make enough puzzles for pairs of your guests to compete in a puzzle-finishing contest. Offer a prize to the pair who can complete the puzzle first.

Pin the Kiss on Edward

For a game that will make young and old alike giggle, try a game of "Pin the Kiss on Edward." Follow the same rules as the traditional Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Blindfold the guests one at a time and have them tape paper lips on a stand-up cutout of Edward. Give a "Twilight: New Moon"-themed prize to the guest who is closest to taping her lips on Edward's lips.

Trivia

Create your own trivia game with facts from "Twilight: New Moon." Add questions from both the movie and the book to add a new dimension to the game. You can play this in game show format, following the game show "Jeopardy!" or another trivia show. For a simpler trivia game, simply read the questions and have your guests shout out answers. Give prizes for the quickest correct answers.

Board Games

In part because of the popularity of the trilogy both in movies and books, there are several "Twilight" and "Twilight: New Moon" board games on the market, including titles such as "Twilight Saga Scene It?" Try one or several of these for an evening of entertainment.
