Fortune game

ritual 1

There is this one ritual game called the fortune game , to play it you need a comp and something to cover your face with. You can play fortune game alone or with other people.

Warning! I would advice you not to play this game. Years ago, some Japanese people would commit suicide after playing Tsuji-ura because they did not like the prediction of the future that they were given. Nowadays it is known as crossroads-fortune crackers, but if after this information you still want to try this game then follow these next steps :

Step1: you take the comp and go to the crossroads at night after dark.

step2: make sound with the comp three times with your fingers. Chant the following three times “Tsuji-ura, Tsuji-ura, grant me a true response.”

step3: Wait for someone who don’t know to pass by, it needs to be stranger it is important that the person ain’t someone you already know. When you see the stranger approaching, cover your face with something. A book, a newspaper or a bag will do. If there are other people with you, they must cover their faces too.

step4: Ask the person who you see to tell your fortune. If the stranger for some reason refuses to answer or to tell you then wait until next stranger passes you by

In Europe there is believe that the spirits of the dead wonder the streets at nights. And it is also said that the devil can be found in crossroads at nights and that it would look like human. So when the crossroads divination is played they were asking for their fortune to be told by a ghost or the devil.so you could never tell if the stranger was The Devil himself…

Some interesting points:

The game of Tsuji-ura became so popular that the Japanese produced little crackers with fortunes inside, written on paper. These cakes were called “Tsuji-ura Senbai”, which means “Crossroads Fortune-Telling Crackers”. Years later, in America, after the war, Chinese restaurants adopted these Japanese crackers and named them Fortune Cookies. So when you eat a fortune cookie in a Chinese restaurant, this tradition comes straight from this old crossroads game.

So good luck on your game and have fortune with you…

evanhoverly: I absolutely loved this book and the characters in it. The story would often introduce unexpected events keeping it interesting.The book could use a good proofreading before it gets published, but otherwise a good read!

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
