People have always been intrigued by the paranormal and not everyone takes it seriously. Especially these days, people still deny the existence of paranormal entities.
Video games are an awesome thing to have, they are submersive worlds we can dive into a take part of a new reality. However, you might be getting bored with today’s selection of video games, it never means you should resort to playing these paranormal games. There is one opponent you never want to play against and that is a spirit. You never know if it’s a good one or an evil one, and they have the ability to linger, wreaking havoc on your everyday life. Nonetheless, ghosts, demons, spirits, and negative energy are nothing you should be playing around with – yet, we’ve still had some idiots create games rivaling the authority of an extremely metaphysical spirit. Never play these games!
Ouija boards have been popular for quite some time, and are probably the most common known receptor of the other side. Coming about in the 19th century, the Ouija board is used as a medium to communicate with spirits – both good and evil.
Three Kings Cross
To play this game you go into a dark room around midnight with candles, two mirrors, three chairs, and any significant object from childhood. After placing them and being sure of their location, sit down at 3:33 AM with a candle in hand. Supposedly, spirits will communicate with you through the mirrors.
Dark Reflection Game
This game is actually considered to be a very negative ritual that also uses a mirror. Focus on negative thoughts and hold a burning flame until a black smudge appears. Smash the mirror and throughout the night your home will be haunted with evil manifestations.
One Hide n’ Seek
Originating in Japan, this game is where you play hide and seek with a doll. After removing the insides of a stuffed doll, replacing it with rice and a piece of your DNA, wrapping it in red thread, and placing it in a tub, the doll will hide from you. Once the doll is gone it means it’s your turn to hide.
Charlie charlie took the internet by storm a few years ago. It is a paranormal game that uses two or four pencils. You align them on a grid that represents sectors labelled yes and no. It is the same principle the Ouija board uses and should never be played. It is said that a Mexican demon called Charlie will answer all your questions.
Get into the elevator all alone and press the buttons 4-2-6-2-10-5. If a woman enters your elevator at the fifth floor then the game is on. The elevator then takes you to a different world, and if wish return to the real world just press the same buttons again and you will be back from where you started.
Everyone is aware of bloody Mary. To summon this feminine spirit, all you have to do is find a dark bathroom and candles. Light the candles and repeat to yourself, Bloody Mary three times. It is said that if you keep repeating her name she will appear and try to kill you.
The Midnight Game
The midnight game focuses around a paranormal entity known as the midnight man. It is a pagan ritual originally used to punish those who disobeyed religion. When you play, you summon the midnight man and are forced to run from him until 3:33 AM. Many people who have played this game have reported hallucinating for days and living in fear and misery for the rest of their lives.
Tsuji-ura/ the Fortune Game
This game allegedly originated many, many years ago in Japan. Tsuji-ura is a little less involved than some of the others on the list. All you have to do is find a comb and something to cover your face, when it’s dark outside take them to a crossroad, run the comb over your teeth three times to make some noise, and repeat “Tsuji-ura, Tsuji-ura, grant me a true response” three times. If a stranger comes to approach you, cover your face; then ask them to tell you your fortune. If it works and they refuse, do not push it!
The Doors of Your Mind
According to Bustle, the Doors of Your Mind originated on the Three Kings subreddit. Again, this game is relatively low risk compared to the rest of the games on this list. This game could be considered a form of medication; the end goal is simply to explore the contents of your own head. You have to visualize the interior of your mind as a corridor with many doors and room shooting off. Take your time walking through everything, this will help you sort out problems or hopefully, you might just learn something about yourself. Be cautious, there could be some unpleasant or downright nasty things lurking in there. It is not unheard of for threatening entities to appear and lock you in one of the rooms, and getting locked in can sometimes complicate things. Also know that you do not have to open all of the doors, if you get a dark feeling from one, leave it closed.
The Closet Game
Don’t be fooled, this is no seven minutes in heaven. The closet game risks intentionally bringing a demon into your home, much like a Ouija board does. It consists of you standing in a closet with an unlit match and repeating the phrase ,“Show me the light or leave me in the darkness.” Once you hear a faint whisper you light the match and if you don’t light it in time, it is said that the demon will pull you into eternal darkness. Annnnnd that’s the point of the game. Literally just an RSVP for a demon into your house.
Daruma – San
Daruma San translates to bath tub game. Don’t get too excited, it doesn’t look like very much bath-time fun. This Japanese game is a ritual in which you summon a spirit and try evading it. It’s rather silly honestly, but you’ve gotta love ancient legends, right? To do this you must be in a bathtub filled with water, naked, and repeat “Daruma San Fell Down”. Legend has it that a spirit will appear and fall next to the tub, and she follows you for the rest of your life.
