Indeed cursed paranormal games do exist. In fact Jumanji, a Zulu word meaning “many effects”, is a real game somewhat similar to what was seen in the hit 1995 motion picture starring Robin Williams. We don’t know much about the real Jumanji board game, it’s origins, or it’s current location. However we know some things about an even more deadly game that originates from Romania. It’s called “Joc De Moarte” which literally translates in to “game of death” in Romanian. Joc De Moarte was a board game commissioned in the late 1700′s by the infamous Prince Dracula Of Wallachia, a prominent second generation member of the global vampire royal family. Dracula was bored with the monotony of his daily murders, and blood sucking. He wanted a real challenge so he looked to the world of magical practitioners to spice up his dull life.
The infamous Sorcerer Dimitri Diablo took up the challenge. Back in those days he had yet to achieve the power he has today, and he actually had some alliances instead of taking on the world independently. He was friends with Dracula for a time, and Dracula was impressed by the power he wielded even back then. Over the course of a year Dimitri perfected the diabolical board game from hell. When completed Dracula played the first game with Dimitri, another vampire, a witch, a Lycan, and a hapless human. The playing board runs it’s way through a damned castle, and the surrounding Black Forest Of Doom. Dice, riddle cards, and a small magical crystal ball guide players forward to the end game. Throughout the board game magical beings materialize out of thin air, and attack at will. They include demons, poltergeists, Earthly Gods, vampires, werewolves, zombies, sorcerers, witches, warlocks, wizards, and miscellaneous monsters. The Black Forest Of Doom actually appears in the general area of the game at key points in the game as if it was holographically generated. The game takes players on a quest for the Devil’s Unholy Grail. A real life chalice once used by the Devil. It’s said to give a pure evil soul the ultimate power while damning the rest straight to hell. A pure soul would in fact destroy the chalice by merely touching it.
The unholy cup is made of cursed Carbonado, aka black diamond, and said to be molded by the very fires of hell itself. To activate it’s power a person must drink of their own blood from the chalice. The location of the real chalice is unknown. However the game duplicates it, and the winner of the game receives a surge of power courtesy of the Sorcerer Diablo. During the first game everyone died except for Dracula, and Dimitri. Dracula nearly died while playing, and at the end, after Dimitri let him win, he thanked Dimitri for the amazingly exciting experience. Joc De Moarte provided Dracula with many decades of fun for him, and his guests. The game is self powered through powerful demonic spells, and works independently of Dimitri Diablo. Although most of the game conjures up imaginary supernatural entities there are some real Demons, Gods, and other hellish entities called forth. This makes it dangerous even when a player is done with the game. Naturally powerful beings like Dracula don’t really have to worry about such things.
Unfortunately Dracula grew tired of the game, and thought it would be funny to release it into the world to plague humankind. By then Dracula, and Dimitri had gone their separate ways so he had a wizard tie the games crystal ball to a crystal ball in his castle so he could watch the mayhem the game caused. It’s also a fair bet that Dimitri can spy on game players at will via his psychic powers. The historical record indicates that the first deaths caused by the game occurred sometime in the 1840′s. The deadly game has popped up every so often with morbid consequences.
The last recorded sighting was at a Halloween party in Winterset, Iowa in 1977. 43 people lost their lives, including 27 teens, despite the fact only 6 people were playing the board game. The entire large two story home turned into a blood bath of evil entities unleashed by Dimitri’s deadly spells tied to the seemingly harmless wood, and crystal game. An unknown Federal agency quickly swooped in and covered up the massacre due to the obvious paranormal nature of the deaths. It’s unknown if the game is currently in the Federal governments custody or if it’s still floating around ready to find it’s way to a new generation of foolish victims.
