Given that you only have one spooky alphabet block to roll, you don't think you're going to get anything very scary. You won't even get a word, unless maybe it's 'I' or 'A'.
Spookyblock.gif
Given that you only have one spooky alphabet block to roll, you don't think you're going to get anything very scary. Except maybe 'X'. X is kind of scary, right? It's probably the scariest single letter. Still, that isn't saying very much.

Given that you only have one spooky alphabet block to roll, you don't think you're going to get anything very scary. I guess 'E' would be kind of like a scream, but that's really stretching it.

Spookyblock.gif
You pull some spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack, but it turns out you only have three of them. You roll them anyway, and they spell YUP. You and your opponent look at each other and kind of shrug.
Spookyblock.gif

Spookyblock.gif
You pull four spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack, and roll them at your foe. They come up spelling a word that can't be printed in a family game like this one, and your opponent is a little bit shocked.
Spookyblock.gif
You pull four spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack, and roll them at your foe. The resulting word is too foul to actually tell you what it is, but the look on your opponent's face is priceless.

You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling the word BLOOD, and your opponent screams as jets of blood burst out of it nose, ears, and eyes, for X damage. And then you scream as the blood pours into your nose, ears, and eyes, healing you. It is a real bad scene all around.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling the word BONES, and there is a terrible cracking noise as your opponent's bones weaken and splinter under its own weight, for X damage. Somehow, your own bones are correspondingly strengthened. I'll leave it to you to decide if that makes you feel guilty or not.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is CLAWS, and the screech of an invisible beast slices the air in much the same way that the claws of an invisible beast slice your opponent for X damage.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word CRYPT, and your opponent reacts with horror at sudden visions of a nightmarish withered and cackling ghoul. "The puns!" it screams. "I can't take it!"
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word CURSE, and judging from your opponent's reaction, the curse in question is definitely something intestinal-related.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word DEATH, which is kind of disappointingly obvious and cliche, but from the look on your opponent's face, it's taking it very seriously indeed.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is DEMON, and your opponent is suddenly beset by nightmarish visions of Hey Deze and the tortures that await it there for all eternity. (At least that's what you gather from its frantic babbling.)
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The letters spell out the word EERIE, and your opponent is wracked with horrifying visions of... well, you can't see them yourself, so you don't actually know. Some canal, I guess? I wonder what's so scary about that.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling FANGS, and something you can't quite see (and definitely don't want to see) bites a X damage-sized chunk out of your opponent.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word FATAL, and your foe suddenly takes X from an unidentified source. A heart attack or something? It's not really clear. Still, whatever works, right?
Spookyblock.gif

Spookyblock.gif

Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is GHOST, and a shrieking, translucent blue wraith suddenly materializes and flies directly through your opponent's torso and vanishes with a cackle. Your opponent doesn't seem to enjoy the experience very much.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is GHOUL, and your opponent suddenly has horrible visions of screeching unholy ghouls ripping at it with their filthy claws and devouring its flesh. You kind of wish it wouldn't describe them in such detail.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is GRAVE, and your opponent is beset by horrible Ebenezer Scrooge-like visions of their future death. (Very near future, if you have anything to say about it.)
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word GROSS, which turns out to be pretty appropriate when your opponent starts doing its impression of a pea soup firehose.
Spookyblock.gif

Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The letters spell out the word HEART, and for a moment you think maybe a dumb ecology-minded superhero might get involved, but ha ha no. What happens is that your opponent wails in pain from suffering a massive coronary for X, and its life-energy streams into you, hitting you with a massive rush of adrenaline that makes the veins in your eyeballs bulge.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is HOOKS. You know that opening scene in "Hellraiser"? That is what happens to your opponent. It does about X damage, and I don't want to describe it in any more detail than that.
Spookyblock.gif

Spookyblock.gif

Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word MOIST, which is a terrible word, but not as terrible as the shade of green that your opponent is suddenly turning.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling the word SCARY, which is amusingly meta. Your opponent doesn't notice though, because it's too busy being tormented with visions of nightmare hellscapes.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The word that comes up is SKULL, and your opponent is suddenly plagued with vivid hallucinations of hundreds of skulls chattering and cackling and shouting its name. Actually, you can see them too, but since it's not your name they're shouting, it isn't so bad.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling the word SLICE, and something invisible slices your opponent's tin can like a tomato, for X damage.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The letters spell out the word SLIME, which (judging from your opponent's reaction) is what its internal organs are turning into -- except the lungs, which are filling up with it.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. The letters spell out the word SOULS, and X points worth of your opponent's soul bursts out of its body with a howl and pour into your mouth. It's not as distressing as it sounds -- they're kind of minty-tasting -- but your opponent doesn't seem happy about it.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling the word SPOOK -- your opponent then apparently sees something you don't, because its hair (or hair-analogue) turns white from fear.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They come up spelling the word TAINT, which is gross, but not as gross as your opponent's sudden and explosive reaction.
Spookyblock.gif
You grab a handful of spooky alphabet blocks out of your pack and roll them at your opponent. They spell out the word TEETH, and uh, well, I don't think you really want to know what happens exactly, but your opponent takes X damage, and you feel a bit healthier. Let's just leave it at that.

If a block is consumed in combat

One of the blocks flares up in sickly green flames and vanishes, leaving a scorch mark on the floor.
One of the blocks crumbles in a wreath of thick yellow smoke and vanishes, leaving the smell of sulphur in the air.
One of the blocks suddenly explodes with an anguished howl, scattering splinters around the room.

If the damage is on-going, it is displayed after the block is consumed

Your opponent coughs and retches, hacking up X points worth of what might be bile, and might be ectoplasm. Or both -- there's no reason why it couldn't be both.

If the blocks stunned your opponent

Your opponent is still reeling from the shock of being confronted with its own mortality, and fails to do anything that might confront you with yours.

If the stun wears off

Your opponent's eyes refocus, and it shakes its head, recovering from its previous horrifying shock.
