9. Ouija Board
Though Ouija Boards are commonly sold as games, they really are not. It has been in existence since 1891 when it got advertised as a talking board as per Smithsonian and from the 19th century, its connection with spiritualism started in America. You can get this game easily in any toy store. The board has number and letters written on it and has a planchette that spirits are supposed to move. Players will have to keep their finger lightly on the board and ask any question. If there are any spirits around they will move the planchette to spell out the answer.
8. Three Kings Cross
This is also a very famous paranormal game. To play this game you have to find a place that has no place for light to enter. At around midnight you need to enter the room with two, preferably large mirrors, candles, three chairs, and any important object from your childhood and then need to place them the right way. Now, keep the door open and go to your bedroom. After 3 go to that dark room again and check if everything is exactly in the position you had left it. At 3:33 am exact, sit on the chair keeping a lighted candle in your hand. Now, look at your reflection in the mirror. After just a short while, you will likely experience a weird presence around you and that perhaps will try to communicate with you. This can be dangerous so think twice before trying.
7. The Bathtub Game
This game basically is a ritual from Japan. It involves summoning a ghost that will follow you throughout the day and try to catch you.
To play this game, you will have to go to your bathtub before sleeping. Get rid of all your clothes. Fill the tub with water, and turn all the lights off. When you enter the tub you must be facing the faucet. Now close your eyes and start washing your hair and at the same time keep chanting “Daurama-sen fell down” until you have finished washing your hair. You will soon notice the mental image of a Japanese woman standing in front of the bathtub before she falls on some rusty tap that then goes through her eyes. As soon as you feel a presence around you ask this question – “Why did you fall in the bathtub”. Do not wait for any answer. While keeping your eyes close, carefully stand up, and go out of the bathroom, close the door, go and sleep.
Next morning, you will feel some presence around you. Throughout the day you have to maintain distance from her, and when you notice her behind your right shoulder you need to shout “Kitta!” and do a karate chop motion at the same time with your hand. If you do not do this properly then you will surely see her in your dreams.
6. Bloody Mary
The Bloody Mary folktale is pretty popular. What you need to do to play this game is to take a candle in your hand when it is 3 and go up to a mirror and three times say “Bloody Mary”. This, supposedly, will summon a blood-covered lady who can do anything to you. Many people have said to have had horrific experiences and some people have experienced nothing at all.
5. Dry Bones
It is like a hide and seek game but with the demons. If you win the game you get a reward of your choice. And, if you lose, then the situation can be bad. If you still want to play this game just go to your bathroom at 12:01 am, light a candle and stare into the mirror. Now repeat this phrase “I am aware of your presence and I welcome you”. Now run quickly and hide. Once you are tired go to the biggest room in your house at exactly 3:00 am and say “Thank you for playing, but you must leave now. You are no longer welcome to my house.” If you hear a sound, that signifies the demon has agreed.
4. Hide and Clap
