Corner Game

Source: various blogs in Naver

Corner Game is a game using a room's four corners.
There's a superstition that "If you look at one of the corners of the dark room before you sleep, ghosts will come haunt you."
From ages before, there's many myth sayings that corners are very unlucky.
Mental images of corners are often dark and gloomy, rather than bright and happy.

Ghosts that crawl around the ceiling use the four corners to come down to the floor,
And ghosts that stand in your room also use the corners.

The game requires each of the 4 players to sit in corners and rotate to arouse the ghosts's curiosity,
and people report that sometimes the ghost messes around with them and sometimes plays along with them.
In an empty room without any furniture.

To play:
1. The 4 players are to clear out the house (There can't be any other person or pets in the house).
2. Except for the room where you're going to play, turn off all the lights.
3. Once you enter the selected room, call out your name 3 times.
4. Then talk amongst yourselves to decide who will give out signals (if during the game, someone who's not the designated talker speaks, then all might be injured).
5. Close the door to the room.
6. Each of the 4 people pick 4 corners to stand in, and face the wall.

ex) Friend1 -- Friend 4

Friend 2 -- Friend 3

7. The person who's to give out the signal is to say "One, two, three" and then everyone rotates.
(if you accidentally run into the other player, quietly turn on the light and start again after a few seconds.)

ex) Friend 2 -- Friend 1

Friend 3 -- Friend 4

8. They say that during the game, someone will disappear. If someone does disappear, then the signaling person lets others know through a signal.
9. Then after muttering your name backwards 3 times, press your back to the wall and turn on the light. (Then the person who disappeared will come back.)

If someone is standing still, then you can assume that it's a ghost who wanted to play along.
If the ghost comes, do not talk to it.
(It's good to decide on a signal to alert others that the ghost is here.)

To end:
1. If one of the players is standing still in one spot, then assume that it's a ghost and after the signal, go behind the person.
2. When all 4 people gather around with their backs to the wall, place your hands on the switch and whisper each's name backwards 3 times, and turn on the switch.
3. After the game, open all the doors in order and refresh the room for 1~2 minutes.
Personal experiences:

1. I told my friends about the game and convinced them to do it.
So around 2 at night, we decided to do it.
Corner Game start~!
I think we switched around for 5~10 minutes?
We noticed someone standing in the corner...
We assumed that it was a ghost and hurriedly finished the game.

After that.... One friend was missing! Missing!!
We were looking for where she went, and she came out from the bathroom.
She said that she remembered doing the Corner Game, but not how she went to the bathroom.
When she said that, we all froze hahahahaha...

The game it self wasn't very scary... But it just gives you goosebumps.

2. My friends A,B,C, and I decided to scare our friend D.
We decided for B to hide under the bed when doing the Corner Game.
Then as D was passing by, B was going to grab her ankle.

We stood in the corner like this:

B ------- D

We were to circle two times so that when B goes under the bed and after I pass the bed, B would pass next.

We got ready to play the game and whenever we would change our spots, we decided to knock on the floor with our toes.
That way, we knew that all 4 of us were here.
I would knock, then B would knock twice, etc.
So to summarize:

me - 1 knock
B - 2 knocks
D - 3 knocks
C - 4 knocks

It would be too scary if we slammed on our feet, so we decided on the knocks hahahaha.

After we made 1 turn around the room, we were starting our second turn.
Suddenly B starts smiling because it's her cue to go under the bed.

Knock Knock

There wasn't any sound, even though we waited for a minute.

Knock Knock Knock Knock

Suddenly there was a sound.
It was so scary.
But I decided to not panic and continued with game.

Knock Knock
Knock Knock Knock Knock

This pattern continued.


After a while

Knock Knock
Knock Knock Knock Knock
Knock Knock Knoc

Ah, so we're all here~
So I was relieved and turned on the light, and

me -------no one

Then B crawled out from underneath the bed, and was shaking badly.

"What's wrong??"

"I was under the bed this entire time..."

"So what?"

"But there still was a knocking sound. Even though I wasn't able to use my hands or feet."

(for those that are confused, though B was under the bed and couldn't use her hands/feet to make her number of knocks (2), there still was someone or something make the knocks instead.)

(it was actually a joke by B to scare her three friends lol)
