Red Door Yellow Door

Red Door, Yellow Door is a scary paranormal game to play at sleepovers. This ritual is also known as “Black Door, White Door” or “Doors of the Mind”. One person acts as a guide, puts you into a trance and leads you through doors and rooms in your mind.

Red Door Yellow Door

To play this game you need at least 2 people. One is the guide and the other is the subject. Other people can sit quietly and watch.

Step 1: The guide sits down on the floor, cross-legged with a pillow on their lap. You lie on the ground with your head on the pillow and close your eyes.

Step 2: Raise your hands in the air and try to relax. Your eyes must be kept closed throughout this game.

Step 3: The guide starts to massage your temples with their fingers in a circular motion while chanting “Red door, yellow door, any other color door” over and over. If there are other people in the room watching, they should chant too.

Step 4: When you feel yourself slipping into a trance and you can see a room or doors in front of you, lower your arms. This is the signal for the chanting to stop and the game will begin.

Step 5: The guide asks you questions, getting you to describe your surroundings and prompting you to open doors. Whenever the guide asks you a question, you should answer it.

Here are some examples of the type of questions the guide should ask:

“Are you in a room?”
“Describe this room.”
“What color are the doors?”
“How do you feel about the purple door?”
“Open the purple door and go through.”

Some advice:

1: If you encounter people in the rooms, it may be wise to not interact with them. Usually, they turn out to be evil or try to trick you.

2: If you find yourself in a room full of clocks, leave immediately. Clocks can trap you.

3: You can go wherever you want, but it is better to go up than to go down.

4: Light things and light colors tend to be better than dark things and dark colors.

5: If you become trapped in a room, you have to try and wake up or you will be trapped in the trance forever.

6: They say that if you die in the game, you could also die in real life.

7: If you encounter a man in a suit who makes you feel uneasy, you should end the game immediately.

8: In an emergency, if you are unable to wake up, it may be necessary for the guide to shake you roughly until you awaken.

    I played this with my friend and he saw the guy in the suit except he had a duck head or face or something like that. He was so freaked out. And while we were playing he didn’t respond to anybody but me (I was the guide) Has anybody else experience this? It’s really scary.

    I did this on my maternal aunt and my mom. It worked both times! However I’m afraid to try this on myself as I have creepy stuff going on in my mind so I’m afraid to explore my creepy mind.
    THERE IS ANOTHER VERSION OF THIS. I TRIED THIS VERSION:
    “You are at one end of a very long corridor. There are numerous doors on both sides, spanning the entire length. I want you to explore these doors and the rooms behind them. Describe to me, what you can touch, feel, see and hear with great detail…”

    You should close a door when you are exiting a room.
    Old lady: Exit the room immediately.
    Man in a suit: Exit the room immediately
    Room full of clocks: Don’t touch any of them and exit the room immediately.
    IF a door is blocked or locked, search yourself for any key, in you pockets, in your shoes, etc. IF, you can’t get in, that means you are not ready to face what’s inside the room. So, leave it alone.
    DON’T play this game for more than 1 hour!

    I’ve played it before. It’s super fun. The only thing is don’t turn on the light right away, wait for the person who was exploring his\her mind’s eyes to adjust because otherwise, it suddenly going from pitch darkness to bright light messes with eyesight. It happened to my friend but when I did it I told them to wait for my eyes to adjust and it did, and my eye sight wasn’t screwed up, and I was the one who had played for longer

    I played this game with my 10 yr old niece, Aleeia, and my 2 friends, Isabelle and Nathan. Aleeia did it to Nathan and he saw the man!!! I watched a video of a guy doing it and he was in this room and Nathan went in a room of the same color door and he described the room EXACTLY the way the guy did in the video! Then Isabelle did it to me. They changed for about 20 minutes but it didn’t work. It was amazing

    You should never play this game. My friends and I played this and then, when they woke up, their eyesight was different. They said it was blue and green and stuff and it took a really long time for their vision to return to normal…
