Summary, etc.:
What begins as a test of bravery or a sleepover activity-chanting in front of a mirror, riding an elevator alone, taking pictures in the dark-can become something dangerous. This compendium collects the most spine-chilling games based on urban legends from around the world. Centuriesold games such as Bloody Mary and Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board are detailed alongside new games from the internet age, like The Answer Man, a sinister voice that whispers secrets to whomever manages to contact him with a cellphone. With step-by-step instructions, historical context, and the stakes for each game, this black handbook is the ideal gift for anyone looking for a late-night thrill-but beware who, or what, may come out to play.
Subject: Psychic games.
