Provided the pencils point towards yes, players are said to be free to ask the spirit questions. At the end of the game, players must ask permission to stop by chanting “Charlie, Charlie can we stop?” They must then wait until Charlie says yes by pointing the pencil to the appropriate square.Players must then drop the pencils to the floor so “the demon portal to his or her own home hasn’t been left wide open forever.”There is also a two-person version of the game that uses six pencils.Not everybody is convinced the game is supernatural in any way, with some suggesting that the movement is a result of nothing more than physics.There have been reports of some participants claiming to have witnessed strange phenomena, such as seeing peculiar shadows or hearing uncanny noises while playing the game, and suffering from nightmares afterwards.Others claim to have experienced no unusual activity in connection with taking the challenge.last_img
