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?
