The Midnight Game is believed to be part of an ancient Pagan ritual that was used as a type of punishment for those who disobeyed the Gods. It involves summoning the Midnight Man and avoiding him from midnight until 3:33am.
People who have played this game strongly recommend against it, as most of them have walked away with severe mental trauma.
To play the game you’ll need to gather the following items; a candle, matches, salt, paper and pen, a wooden door and finally a drop of your own blood. In order to invite the Midnight Man into your home you must write down your name and then add a drop of your own blood to the piece of paper.
Once this is done you must turn off every light in the house and place the lit candle and the paper in front of a wooden door. You are then required to knock on the door 22 times with the final knock occurring as the clock strikes 12am. Then it is important that you reopen the door, blow out the candle and then close the door again. Relight your candle immediately. After these steps are completed the game has begun, you have until exactly 3:33am to avoid the Shadow Man as begins to hunt for you in dark.
There are many signs that indicate he is near, this include; whispering sounds, sudden drops in temperature and most importantly the candle flickering or going out. If it does you must re-light it within 10 seconds and then surround yourself in a salt circle which you must remain in until the game ends at 3:33am.
If the Midnight Man manages to capture you, he’ll either trap you inside a hallucination of your worst fear or simply rip out your internal organs one by one. So whatever you do, don’t let him capture you.
