The Internet has been awash with reports of weird things happening and the general creepiness of the game.

The set up of the pencils and the sheet of paper in the #CharlieCharlie pencil game.

There's a new self-help game trending everywhere all over Instagram, and its called Charlie Charlie.

The game in present day times is played with two pencils (preferably blunt or unsharpened ones) and a sheet of paper with 'Yes' and 'No' written across it in block form.

However, investigations reveal that the original game involved Six pencils, and that it is originally a Mexican game and it was invented in Mexico by children who were attempting to contact the spirit of a dead child named Charlie.

To begin the game, the pencils are balanced in a way which one is balanced on top and at the middle of the other one, on the sheet of paper which should already have the words 'Yes' & 'No' written on it.

Then all players must chant "Charlie, can we play?" simultaneously and together. If the pencil on top moves in any of the directions, and points on either yes or no, then the players play accordingly.

Various groups of people have already tried to dispel the possibilities of the game but if you aren't interested in that, feel free to enjoy with your friends!
