country – Children and adolescents tend to enter into experiments and bets that are often uncalculated with risks, and this really happened these days and is happening in Egypt, where social networks were buzzing about a new social disaster that threatens the lives of students, it is a “game of necromancy” which caused a wide controversy among parents and pioneers of communication sites.

What is the “Charlie” necromancy game?

Recently, a dangerous game has spread in Egypt, which those who play it call “the game of summoning spirits” and in other sayings “the game of summoning jinn.” In both cases, a sane person realizes that the name is too big for a minor or teenager to understand.

The last of these games was the death game or “Charlie”, a game based on a series of challenges, according to what activists said on social media in an attempt to clarify this game.

“Charlie” relies on spirit communication, and one of the conditions is that the practitioners of this challenge must be children or adolescents, in order to summon the spirit of a child named Charlie.

The rules of this game are simple, in which two pencils are placed on top of each other as an “X”, on a sheet of paper on which the words “Yes” and “No” are written, surrounded by a square divided into four parts and on each part written the word ” Yes and no”.

The two words are evenly distributed, and the players (provided they are children or adolescents) begin to invoke Charlie’s spirit with phrases such as “Charlie can we play”, “Charlie are you here”.

Then the second phase of the game begins, during which these children wait for the pencils to start moving.

Then the player asks questions, and “Charlie” (who has essentially signed his ghost to the law of the game) moves the pencil to one of the “yes” or “no” answers.

What is the attitude of the authorities in Egypt about the game Charlie?

This dangerous game has caused anxiety and panic among parents in many Egyptian provinces.

Because in recent months there has been a lot of news about accidents, mostly caused by some children who entered these games, which sometimes leads to the death of one of them, and in the best cases to serious injuries.
