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…
