What is it?

The picture game is a terrifying game in which the players will attempt to summon a ghostly spirit and force it to appear within the image that you will take using your camera or phone. Will it be a friendly ghost or a demonic tormented presence? There is only one way to find out. The entity that you summon will only be interested in one of the two players. In some ways, this could be considered a game of chance to see who the unlucky one might be.

The setup

The two players must set up two chairs in a spacious room facing one another. Ensure to perform the set up in a well lit room to avoid any hazards, such as tripping over. We recommend switching off any and all electronics present in the room, other than the camera that you are equipped with. Prior to both of the players taking their positions on the seats, you will need to switch off all of the lights in the room and make sure that it is pitch black. No light should be visible in the room at all as this will interfere with the process. The two players should now sit on the chairs facing one another. Both in unison, chant "the door is open you may come in" 6 times. You should now start taking turns taking flash images of one another.

Eventually you will start to notice anything from a small trace of a spirit, all the way to a fully formed demonic entity behind one of the players. As soon as this is noticed, you must immediately stop playing as the entity has now selected its host. With this, you will also notice the temperature dropping in the room as it gets colder and colder around you. At this point, both of the players should vacate the room as the selected player is now in immediate danger. Continuing to take images and playing the game further could lead to physical harm and even possession.

Demon or Spirit?

It is widely believed that spirits and ungodly entities walk among us day in and day out, it's just that we can't see them. The spirits exist on a plain that is not visible to the human eye. It is however visible to sensitive equipment and technology that we have invented such as the camera itself. The camera has been known to catch a variety of ghostly spirits and even demonic acts. In this scenario, you're manifesting the entire situation by summoning whichever entity is closest to you in that room. This is why this game can be dangerous.

Protect yourself

Playing cursed games without protection is risky. Using the stone of luck and protection also known as "Antares Lucio" is a great way to protect yourself while playing these games.
