1. Truth or Dare Game
How to play:
Players take turns choosing between a truth or a dare, and must either answer a question or perform a dare that is determined by the other players. The questions can be as embarrassing as you like, and the dares can be anything you can imagine, but has to be safe and not harmful. In this game, the players have a choice between telling the truth when asked a question, performing a minor dare, or performing a riskier (bigger) dare. This version is called the Truth-Dare-Double Dare game. Another version of this game, Truth-Dare-Double Dare-Repeat is the same except you also have an added choice of promising to repeat something in public later. This “something” is usually something embarrasing!
Tip: It’s a good idea to set some ground rules before you play so nobody gets their feelings hurt or gets in to too much trouble.
Rule: If anyone agrees to tell the truth, perform a dare, etc. and doesn’t, they are out of the game.
- Truth – What are you afraid of?
- Truth – What bad things have you wished for?
- Truth – What is your most embarrasing moment?
- Dare - Act like pig for thirty seconds.
- Dare – Wear your pants inside out for 1 hour.
- Double Dare - Kiss a stuffed animal with sound effects.
- Double Dare – Sing a song and act like Elvis Presley in front of a few parents.
- Promise to repeat – If you don’t want to tell the truth or do a dare, you have to “promise to repeat” and do something embarassing later on, like sit and have lunch with a boy or girl that was chosen by the rest of the group.
2. Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board
How To Play:
One person plays the feather, and lies on the ground, while the others (4 to 6 girls) gather around her. The girls should all place their index fingers of both hands underneath the person lying down. Everyone closes their eyes, and if the room was dark or dimmed with twinkle lights or candles burning, even better, … everyone chants… “Light as a feather, stiff as a board”…. Start out chanting softly, and after about 20 or so chants, start lifting the person up with your index fingers. The person lying down seem to levitate above the ground.
A variation to this game is to play with a made-up story that goes along with the chant. The player next to the person’s head on the right begins the story. She starts of with,
(1) “It was a dark and stormy night“…. , the second person clockwise follows by repeating the phrase over again… “It was a dark and stormy night”….Each person repeats the same phrase by themselves until the turns goes back to the original head story teller.
(2) “It was cold and icy” … (everyone takes turn repeating this phrase in the circle).
(3) “The car she was in spun out of control” …( everyone takes turn repeating)
(4) “And when they found her” …( everyone takes turn repeating)
(5) “She was light as a feather” …( everyone takes turn repeating)
(6) “And stiff as a board” …( everyone takes turn repeating)
(7) “She was light as a feather, and stiff as a board” (everyone all together several times)
For the last two sentences repeat as a group while lifting the person who is lying down.
3. Bloody Mary
This game can be scary for some, even teens. Do not play if some girls feel uncomfortable. You want the slumber party to be fun for all.
What you need:
- Dark room or dimmed
- A mirror
There are many variations to where this story comes from but one of them may have originated from Queen Mary Tudor of England, who got the name “Bloody Mary” when she had 300 people burned when she was Queen when they did not wanted to follow her Roman Catholic religion. It is also said that the drink the “Bloody Mary” was named after her. In another version of the game, Bloody Mary was thought to be a ghost of a witch killed at the Salem witch trials. Yet another legend tells of a woman who was rumored to have killed girls and then bathed in their blood to retain her youth.
Still wanna play?
- Go in to a room and turn down the lights.
- Hold the flashlight beneath your chin so that the light lights up your face in a scary way.
- Stand in front of a mirror and chant “Blood Mary” thirteen times to summon the spirit of “Bloody Mary”.
- Bloody Mary will appear in the mirror and either reach out to scratch your face, pull you into the mirror with her, or scare you to death. Other evidence that she was there – window slamming shut, footsteps, scar or cut, pain felt on your body, misplaced items, chills, gush of cold air, etc.
- It has been rumored that Bloody Mary isn’t always cruel and mean. If you are lucky, you will see her in the mirror and she will answer questions about the future instead of scratching you.
Summon the spirit of Bloody Mary in complete darkness and see if she is friendly or cruel then.
4. Ouija Board Game
A Ouija board is a board that has letters, numbers and the words “yes”, “no” , “good-bye”, and “maybe” on it. The board comes with a planchette that basically looks like a triangular pointer that has a hole in the middle to indicate the letter the spirits are communicating and that slides across the board when players gently position their fingers on top. The letters that are indicated by the spirits with the planchette supposed to form words of communication. For the Ouija Board to work properly, 2 people must gently rest their fingertips on the planchette.
First start by seeing if there are any spirits around. You do that by asking and repeating the words, “Ouija, are you there?”. When you feel the planchette moving towards the “Yes” answer, you are in luck! Keep in mind, laughing and giggling usually results in aggravating the spirit and will keep them from communicating and showing themselves.
Is it a Good Spirit?
Next, ask them if they are friendly or not. Ask them also if they are a family member that has passed on if they are friendly. If they hold anger, ask them what the reason is.
Now it’s time to focus on our questions. Ask the Ouija respectfully any questions you would like to find out, about future boyfriends, spouses, job professions, success, wealth, etc.
Goodbye, Ouija Board
When you feel it is time to end the conversation, let the spirit know you are stopping communication. Be sure to say “Goodbye” and watch for the planchette to point to the word “Goodbye” on the Ouija Board.
