I am the Very Model of a Modern Major Slenderman: Why I Laugh When Playing Slender: The Eight Pages

SLENDERMAN

SLENDERMAN

On Halloween, a small band of us got together with our flashlights & binkies & played Slender: The Eight Pages.  I’d wanted to try it out for a few weeks, & for some reason, it seemed like a fun group game to me.

If you’re not familiar with the game, you begin the game with the admonition, “Collect all 8 pages.”  You’re armed with a flashlight that you need to conserve, & you can walk or run through the map in the dark, which consists mostly of forest & several landmarks & clearings where the pages can be.  You can’t fight or speak.  Once you pick up a page (or enough time has passed), Slenderman will begin to chase you, & with each successive page you collect, his chase will grow more intense.  If he catches you or you look at him too long, you’ll go insane, & it’s game over.  Sounds like the perfect Halloween game for getting scared, right?
