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 its current location. Rumors, and anecdotal evidence seem to indicate that Jumanji was a creation of an African Witch Doctor, and Dark Witch from Great Britain in the mid 1800’s. They were diabolical lovers who sought to perpetuate evil in an eternally unique way. It was also the only way they could come up with to become Immortal. They live on in the game, and can be released temporarily during game play. Paranormal play that includes herds of dangerous animals stampeding from the game. The board game may also manifest a real overabundance of jungle plantlife, aboriginal warriors, and big game hunters! It can also suck players into the game for decades at a time! It’s said that Jumanji is currently in the possession of the British Royals. Perhaps Queen Elizabeth has played it at least once?
An even more deadly paranormal board game originates from Romania. It’s called “Joc De Moarte” which literally translates into “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 as the centuries rambled forth before his immortal life. He wanted a real challenge so he looked to the world of magical practitioners to spice up his daily deadly routine.
The infamous Sorcerer Dimitri Diablo took up the challenge to create the ultimate supernatural board game of death! Back in those days he had yet to achieve the power he has today as the current King Of Hell. Back then he actually had some alliances instead of taking on the world independently. Diablo was friends with Dracula for a time, and he was impressed by the power Diablo 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 of darkness, 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 blasphemous 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 the game is being played at key points. Similar to solid holographic simulations. In reality they are active astral projections. Ultimately the frightening 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 against their will! 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 is said to be forged within the very fires of hell itself. To activate its power a person must drink 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 by mystical metaphysical means. Although most of the game conjures up imaginary supernatural entities there are some real Demons, Gods, ghosts, jinn, monsters, and other hellish entities called forth. Some trapped in the game, and others called from the great beyond. This makes it dangerous even when a player is done with the game since these entities can linger. Naturally powerful beings like Dracula under demonic protection don’t really have to worry about the after effects of this most disturbing board game.
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 bloodbath of evil entities unleashed by Dimitri’s deadly spells tied to the seemingly harmless wood, and crystal game. The US Paranormal Defense 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 government’s custody or if it’s still floating around ready to find it’s way to a new generation of foolish victims. Certainly it’s a good sign we haven’t heard anything more about this game since 1977!
