Remember that time when during the light-out your granny told you ghost stories after which you couldn’t sleep for days? Or the time when you had a sleepover and that one person would keep telling his paranormal (also made-up) experiences? Well, if after all this time you’re getting bored with your peeps doing the same old things, or just getting a little nostalgic about your childhood, these creepy paranormal ghost games will notch up your pretty party. It’s all fun and thrill and adventurous until you realize messing with evils and demons is not as easy as it seems. These games are not for faint-hearted. You’ve been warned. 😉
10. Light as a feather, stiff as a board
If you’re up for seeing a nifty little trick, supposedly performed by demons that you will summon, this game is perfect. You need no tools, just a friend ready to take the challenge. Let him/her lie down, and have all your other friends on their knees and put two fingers from each hand underneath the person’s body. Next, everyone chants “Light as a feather, stiff as a board” with closed eyes. The body levitates if you do this enough times. (Spoiler: It’s based on simple physics)
9. Closet Game
This game is played by just person. The objective of it is to summon a demon into a closet. If you want to haunt your best friend’s closet for life, it’s a great game. All you have to do is to step into a dark closet, hold up an unlighted matchstick and say, “Show me the light or leave me in the darkness”. If you begin to hear any whispering, immediately light up a match. If you can’t, it’s said that you will be dragged into the darkness forever by the evils. However, if you’re able to do so, take the lighted match and DON’T. LOOK. BACK. It is said tht the closet will be haunted by the demon forever after that, always take a light with you next time whenever you go in.
8. Bloody Mary
The folktale of Bloody Mary is quite popular. What you have to do is when the clock strikes 3, take a candle in your hand, go up to a mirror and say “Bloody Mary” three times. It is supposed to summon a lady covered in blood, who can do anything to you. There have been numerous experiences of people, both horrific, and those who just didn’t experience anything. However, it’s completely up to you to believe it or not.
7. Three Kings
To play this game, you’ll need two mirrors facing each other with a chair placed in the middle. Light a candle, and at exactly 3.30 AM sit on the chair facing a mirror. Stare into the darkness, not into the mirror, not the candle. The purpose of this game is to help you transport into another dimension, another world. People who’ve played this game say you’re into a lucid dream, where you connect with your conscious and resolve past issues.
6. Dry Bones
It’s kind of like hide and seek, but with demons. It’s said that if you win, you get a reward of your choosing, but if you lose, it can get much worse. If you’re adventurous enough to try this, go to your bathroom at 12:01 AM and light a candle, staring into the mirror. Now say, “I’m aware of your presence and I welcome you”. After this, just HIDE. Run as fast as you can just remain hidden. When you get tired of it, go to the largest room of your house at 3:00 AM, and say “Thank you for playing, but you must leave now. You’re no longer welcome to my house.” If you hear any sound, that means the demon has agreed.
5. The Ouija Board game
The Ouija Board is quite known for such paranormal ghost games. An Ouija Board is a way of communicating with the spirits. It has all the numbers and alphabets written on it, and a stone on which each of the player keeps a finger, which moves when asked a question to form the answer. However, the scientists believe it moves just because of some ideomotor effect, still pretty cool right?
4. Charlie Game
This game is also supposed to answer all your questions. You’ll need two or four pencils which are then kept to form a grid. Each box is then marked with Yes and No. It is believed to summon Mexican Demon Charlie, who answers when the pencils start moving without any force from the humans. Got any questions? “Will 1D ever get back together? *I Wish*”
3. Hide and Clap
It’s the same rules like normal hide and clap, just includes playing in the dark. If you want more thrill, play in a big house with few friends. As you start to play, you’ll notice some invisible players playing with you. Continue to play until you’re bored, or exhausted, or terrified, whichever comes first.
2. The Midnight Man Game
Yes, it’s as scary as it sounds. You must start at midnight exactly, and will need a couple more friends to play with you. Take a candle, a pen and paper, matches, salt and a wooden door. Now each person writes their first, middle and last name on the piece of paper. Turn off the lights, go to the wooden door and place the paper on it. Knock exactly 22 times, with the last knock on the stroke of midnight. After this, blow out the candle and open the door. Congrats, you just invited the midnight man into the house. Till 3:33 AM avoid him at all cost. If your candle ever blows out and you can’t relight it again, surround yourself with a salt immediately.
Bend the spoon
This is really fun and not-so-scary yet interesting game with unpredictable results. It can be played in parties since more the people double the fun. Each one of the people then takes a fork or spoon in their hand. Although forks are more fun since the weird shapes they can get into are unlimited. Now take the spoon or fork into your hand and say “Will you bend for me?” or just shout “Bend! Bend!” Rub it slightly. After this, divert your attention toward the fun and laughter going on. This is the main part of the game.
It is believed that the metal then becomes so fluid that it can be bent into almost any shape like clay. Sounds cool? Wait till you try it.
It doesn’t matter whether you believe in paranormal experience or not. In fact, some of these have actually been proven by science! So, ready to delve into the mysterious seas of the dead?
