There are a couple reasons for this thread...
1. I want to know if anybody has heard of or played this game.
2. If you have heard of this game, who/what is the midnight man? Is there a story behind this spirit/demon?
3. Will you try it? (if you are under 18, get permission from your parents)
Here is what I stumbled across, I cannot lie, I am intrigued...
How to play the Midnight Man Game w/ rules
It is highly recommended that you do not play the midnight game, however here are some instructions for thrill seekers. Do at your own risk;
1. It must be exactly 12:00 AM when you begin the ritual, or else it will not work. You will need;
Paper and Pencils
A wooden front door
A pin needle
All the lights in the house off
Step 1: Everyone who is playing the midnight game must write their names on a piece of paper, then use a pin needle to drop a single drop of their
blood onto the paper
Step 2: Place the paper in front of your front door. Your front door must be made of wood.
Step 3: Light a candle
Step 4: Knock on your front door exactly 22 times. (Note: The 22nd knock must happen at 12:00 AM or the ritual will not work.)
Step 5: Open your door, blow out the candle, and close it. You have now summoned the "Midnight Man". Immediately relight your candle
Step 6: Your goal for the rest of the game is to survive the Midnight Man. Everyone who plays must walk with their candle lit around the house,
avoiding the Midnight Man at all costs until the clock strikes 3:33 AM. At which time the Midnight Man will leave. If your candle blows out on its
own, it means the midnight man is near, and you have 10 seconds to relight your candle. if you fail to relight the candle in 10 seconds you must
surround yourself with a circle of salt and wait until 3:33 AM. If you fail to surround yourself with salt in time the Midnight Man will attack and
you will have hallucinations of your worst fears until 3:33 AM.
Signs that the Midnight Man is nearby:
* Your candle blows out
* You suddenly get very cold
* You hear a low whisper
* You see a black humanoid figure within the darkness
* DO NOT USE SOMEONE ELSE'S BLOOD ON YOUR PAPER
* DO NOT STAND IN ONE SPOT UNTIL 3:33 AM, THE MIDNIGHT MAN WILL FIND YOU
* DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FALL ASLEEP DURING THE MIDNIGHT GAME
* DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LEAVE THE HOUSE DURING THE MIDNIGHT GAME
* DO NOT USE A LIGHTER OR ANY OTHER LIGHT SOURCE IN PLACE OF A CANDLE
* DO NOT TRY TO TURN ON THE LIGHTS DURING THE MIDNIGHT GAME
* AND DEFINITELY DO. NOT. TRY TO PROVOKE THE MIDNIGHT MAN!
