Brothers and sisters, it has recently come to my attention that there is a dangerous game by the name of Charlie Charlie that is becoming rather viral here in the Caribbean. The game can be best described as being a “Poor man’s Ouija Board”. The game’s notoriety began as a result of a viral video over social media called the Charlie Charlie Challenge. Basically how the game is played is that you place two pencils in the shape of a cross on anything from a desk, to a piece of paper or even the floor or ground and the words “YES” and “NO” are written in the four spaces of the cross shape. Participants will then repeat the words “Charlie Charlie can we play?” in order to contact a demon which is alleged to be from Mexico. The participants would then ask the demon various questions which would cause the top pencil to rotate to each of the four answers. Despite numerous internet articles and commentaries that have attempted to discredit the legitimacy of this game, many even going as far as to cast it off as make belief or superstition, brothers and sisters I say to you this is very real. This demon is very much active and responds to the call of those who summon it by means of this nefarious game.
Just Thursday alone, here in Antigua students from the Jennings Secondary School have been exhibiting strange behaviours, from fainting to some even attempting to exit public transport vehicles while in the vehicle is in motion. In one of the renown secondary schools the Antigua Girls High School, students reported shaking and furniture moving of its own free will. Elsewhere in the Caribbean for example: A boys school in Barbados, students reported hearing voices during and after playing this game.
Here’s a link to The Jamaica Observer with more on the phenomenon

Brothers and sisters, whether you are in the Caribbean, North, Central and South America, Europe or wherever, be warned and keep your children away from this game. Shalom…
