I win, what do I win?
The old days? How old? Wicca began in England in the 1930s but was not made known to the public until 1954. So Wicca is less than a century old. Some grand houses have door knobs older than that! Also, what would be the sense in punishing erring coven members by death? You would have no coven left! It is total rubbish!
I have never heard of this game before. I suspect it is the latest stupid game to hit the school playground, like the "Charlie Charlie" or "Bloody Mary" game. I blame the Creepy Pasta site, a lot of this rubbish originates from there.
Wicca is older than the 1930's wicca,druidism and shamanism are the original religions before christianity decided to kill anyone who did not worship Jesus and claim that anyone not worshipping the christian God was worshipping the devil.
when I said old days I was referring to the 1600's to 1800's.
I noticed the bloody mary type thing when he mentioned it.
trouble with this kind of game is people think its just a spooky game and nothing is going to happen so they play the game and end up dead with no skin on their bofies or something like that.
people can be so dumb when it comes to things like that
Karen Black is correct that wicca is a modern witchcraft revival, which dates back to the 1940's, what your referring to in the 1600's would be those called the cunning folk.
This game does sound made up, and I'm sure any errant initates would be dealt with on the Astral plane perhaps trapped in an unending dream of putting their name on a piece of paper at precisely midnight you knock on a door 3 times then the midnight man has been summoned and will remain in the house trying to chase down all the players so he can torture them to death the goal of the game is to stay alive till 3 in the morning if you are alive after 3 A.M. you win or you wake up?
AS Karen Black stated the 'Group' Wicca began in the late 1930's.....
The WORD Wicca - however has a long history in the line of LANGUAGES - but not as a direct Religion...
The Acts of persecution regarding anyone considered "Outside of the Governing Religion" has also stemed back since the beginning of time - they all had 'Rules'....and the Punishments were loaded with many dynamics of actions...
"Most versions of the Midnight Game allege that it was once an "old Pagan Ritual" used as a punishment for those who disobeyed the gods; this claim is, of course, unsubstantiated, so apologies to all the actual pagans out there who keep having to explain that no, it’s not—it’s just a story".
