This is both a warning and instructions about a game called the Midnight Game. I played this and I can never enter a dark room anymore. Survivors say you really shouldn't play it but those who are very silly or want to see if this works or you're a thrill seeker I'm going to show you how to play.

Things you'll need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Candle (get a long one that won't go out quickly. If you don't then you're fucked (pardon my language)
  • One drop of your blood
  • Salt (lots of it)
  • Matches (you'll need a lot if you live in a small house)
  • Wooden front door (It can have a bit of glass but if it's just glass it won't work)
  • Bravery
  • Earplugs (it's for your parents if you still live with them, I really don't think they want to wake up from someone screaming)
  • An empty bladder (last thing you want is to have an accident or need to use the loo in this game)

This ritual must be performed when it's like a minute before midnight. If you're doing it with a group of friends (it's less scary that way) then they must have their own materials ready. If you double up it's cheating.During the ritual you can chicken out but if you finish it then you have to play.

You have to do it properly. If you cut corners or don't do something it won't work (DO IT WRONG)

  1. Write your first, middle and last name on the paper (nicknames aren't allowed because it won't work). Prick your finger and put one drop of your blood on the paper and let it soak.
  2. Light a candle with a match and walk to your front door. Put the paper on the floor and the candle on top of the paper.
  3. Knock on the door 22 times. The final knock must be on the dot midnight or else it won't work.
  4. Open the door and blow out the candle. If you're in a group you'll have to hodl onto some part of the door handle to make it work for all of you.
  5. Relight the candle the second you blow it out and close the door (you don't want someone entering the house)
  6. PISS BOLT (for those who don't know what it means it means RUN)

Since you have completed the ritual it really is too late to go back. You can't pause the game or stop it because it's not a video game.

You have to lurk around your house from midnight to 3:33 in the morning. The midnight man is like slenderman and he's looking for you. If you candle goes out for any reason MIDNIGHT MAN IS NEAR. You have ten seconds to relight the candle. If you can't do that then you can use the salt and use it to make a circle around you. You HAVE to stay in the circle until the game is over. This also means that you've lost the game but at least your safe.

If you don't do either of those things MIDNIGHT MAN HAS CAUGHT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He will torture you by making you see your worst fear until 3:33. This also means you've lost the game. Sometimes when you see your worst fear you'll die of fright or commit suicide or have an accident that will kill you. If you can relight your candle then start running the opposite direction.

When the game ends at 3:33 the midnight man leaves your house and its safe to leave your circle of salt and blow out your candle. You can watch a funny movie afterwould in a bright room or go to sleep (which I doubt will happen without seeing nightmares).

Here are some things that'll help you win the game and things that'll help you :

  • NEVER leave the house (you don't want to know what'll happen if you do)
  • DON'T use someone elses blood on your paper
  • DON'T turn on the lights (it's cheating and I don't know what'll happen)
  • NEVER use a torch or flashlight because it won't work
  • DON'T use a lighter becuase it won't work either.
  • NEVER EVER provoke him in any way. He'll get you with or without the candle on becuase if won't cover all of you.

You've been warned.

All I can say about my experience is that I never knew what my greatest fear was until I played it.

When my sister comes home from collage, I am going to ask her to do this with me. I am kinda scared to. What is your worst fear? If you played what was it? and how did you live through it? Please tell me. I can't wait to try it! But to be honest Im kinda freaked!

My worst fear is being left alone in an eerie place. I'll write a short story about my night of the midnight game to give people an idea of what'll happen.

Not to be rude, but, to be honest, I'm not buying it entirely but I'm gonna try it just because it sounds like fun. I've seen a lot of stuff like this and tried it and nothing happened (like Bloody Mary, total hoax) and I guess that's why I'm not believing it.
Since I trust you, I'm going to try it.

You can try if you want. You just have to do it CORRECTLY.

This is quite intriguing XD althought I probably wont do it...but when I'm older and move out of my parents house I might. And I agree with the first person that commented that's creepy. O.o

Ohhh, I've read this or something like this somewhere in the internet. I want to do it, but I'm too chicken for this, I'd probably end up crying or something. Hahaha.

I was like that when I played it. I really wish I'd taken this game more seriously because by the time I did take it seriously he'd caught me. I want my revenge for that torment!!!!

This one creeped me out. I'm backing out before I even get started. Call me chicken or smart. I don't care. But you scared me and I write stuff about the dark side all the time. Good job! :)

Oh man. I love a challenge, but I dont fuck with spirits. (Pardon my language.) One time my friends and I took up residence in an abandoned house every night for a week and nothing happened until the last night when my sis's jerk off friends decided to play bloody Mary in the bathroom at 11pm at night! No parents, no light out side! Well they got their dumb asses locked in the bathroom and had a total melt down when the door wouldn't open, we all Piss ran, but as I looked back the lights were flickering , but not the lights inside of the house, the street lights around it. Me and my sis went back for our comrades and they were there in the hall totally freaked out and suffice it to say that if anyone tries to do the Bloody Mary challenge or the Candy man challenge I run away with hands over my ears. No No not me. I cant do it. Im the one who couldn't board the elevator for three months after final destination part 2! Sorry for the long write but it helps me when Im freaked like right now!

Don't worry. I get scared very easily so it's difficult for me to do scary things and watch them.

Wow this is totally sounds Bizarre. I'm mostly a chicken when it comes to stuff like these so I wouldn't try it lol. but if I was to tell my boyfriend, he'd surely want to do it haha xD since you said you played it, I would like to know about your experience. Did you see your worst fears or were you in a circle of salt? If your to write a short story, do KMU :)

I will tell a story about it and I'll let you know as soon as I write it. Thanks so much for enjoying it.

Okay, I have been warned! I got a weak heart, and I have enough fears in my life that I don't really need to know which one is the worst. this as a piece of writing on the other hand is an interesting writ. and I am judging it on what it is, rather than what it says. this looks like a fine recipe for fright. real or not, this will cook up a dish of fear just by contemplating the process. nicely done!

Ok, this sounds really fun but I am such a scaredy cat that I'm too afraid to try it! I really want to but I don't at the same time. At least I know where this is so I can look at it when I'm braver... Maybe... Thanks for sharing this!

Wow this is really dang creepy. So you tried it? Did you actually like, see the Midnight dude? Did he really torture you?! I swear if your screwing with me...nothing will happen because I'm alone in my room. :) but seriously this is really creepy...I kind of want to play it, but I'd probably only do it with a friend or two at some pout 'cause I'm squeamish, but I'm running low on friends. Where did you hear about this game Lady Cataluna? Please tell.

I heard about it when I was ten years old when I accidentally looked it up. I wasn't able to see him but I felt his hand touch me.

I guess I should get a wooden front door and wait... Playing it during Halloween would be better, therefore I'll have to wait :( Haha ^^ This game sounds awesome but it doesn't sound very smart. You actually shouldn't interrupt spirits but YOLO... Went a bit hipster there, oops... Biggest fear: Becoming a hipster... And I just did so now I'm fearless... Just kidding XD
