I saw something about it year(s?) ago on Paranormal State. It was the first time I had heard of it. Has anyone heard of it/played it?
Here are some instructions borrowed from Wikihow...

1.Light one hundred candles!

2.Get a group of people to play with you.

3.Sit in a circle and go around telling paranormal experiences everybody's had.

4.Each time someone tells an experience, that person blows out one candle.

5.Keep telling experiences until all the candles are blown. When all of them are out, there should be 100 spirits with you in the room!

6.Don't get too scared!

Anyone played it before?!

I haven't played it before, nor am I likely to.  :lol:  I actually saw the episode you're referring too.  Basically it's just setting up a spooky atmosphere and everyone freaking each other out.  Much like campfire stories.  It's a fun thing to do... for some, lol.  It's a psych out thing. :)  Have you done it?  I'd love to hear some of the stories told. :D  One dark night I might just read them and cry myself to sleep, hehe.

Skepticism is good, but when you reach a certain level where
you're grasping at straws and making little sense... it's not
called skepticism.  It's called ignorance.

No, I have never tried and I don't think any of my friends are ballsy enough to try it with me. I hope there is somebody who has an experience to share!

would have to be a big group to tell 100 different stories.

I'd try it, but I don't have enough candles or enough paranormal stories to share or even enough real life friends. :P

Doesn't seem like anybody has played before.  Must be a rare or unknown game.

The game would require quite a bit of planning, not many people have 100 candles lying around, or have memorized a bunch of scary stories for retelling...

Never heard of it before, but it sounds interesting. Sort of sounds like it could be a fire hazard too with 100 candles, lol. Maybe a few packs of birthday candles would work.
Don't think it would be too difficult to come up with 100 stories as long as they don't have to be personal accounts or recited from memory. A group could be pretty small if each person was armed with a different book of  "true" ghost stories.

Sure does sound fun to try out, rather it would be best for paranormal clubs to try this out rather cause a hundred tales or candles is quite a lot lol.  :yes:
