The Midnight Man
The Midnight Man is an elusive entity that can be summoned by playing the Midnight Game. Many people fear the Midnight Game and it is said to be one of the more dangerous paranormal games to play. Fail to hide from the Midnight Man during gameplay and you could pay the ultimate price, your life!
How to Play the Midnight Game
To play this game you will need to gather a few basic supplies. These include a candle, pin, lighter/matches, piece of paper, writing implement, salt and find an appropriate wooden door.
Gather all of your supplies and get ready to play the game. You will need to begin just before midnight.
Write your full name upon your piece of paper. This must include all given names such as your middle name. Use the pin to draw a drop of your own blood and place it upon the same paper. Now, proceed to turn off all lights within your house.
Head to the wooden door you have selected to play and put your piece of paper down on the floor in front of the door. Light your candle and place the burning candle on top of the paper.
You must time this next step carefully. Close the door and proceed to knock upon it 22 times in a row, making sure to deliver the final knock at precisely midnight. You must now open the door and immediately blow out the candle. Now, close the door and relight your candle.
If you have followed these steps correctly, you should have now successfully invited the Midnight Man into your home. Your goal now is to avoid running into the Midnight Man. Ensure you keep your lit candle, salt and matches/lighter on your person throughout this entire game.
You must begin to walk quietly around your house holding onto your lit flame. This candle must remain your only source of light. Make sure not to stay in any one place for too long as this increases your chances of being captured by the Midnight Man. If at any time during the game your candle is blown out, you must immediately relight it within 10 seconds. Continue this step until 3.33 am. If you fail to relight your candle, you must immediately surround yourself with a circle of salt and remain in the protected space until the end of the game.
3.33 am marks the end of the game. At this time you may stop walking around your home or exit your salt circle. It is advised that you also turn on all lights within your home. But, remain vigilant as the Midnight Man may not have left your house.
