The Answer Man is an urban legend about a game that is played by kids in Japan. They say the game can invoke an evil spirit that will answer any question put to it.
The Answer Man is an urban legend that has been circulating among Japanese kids for over 10 years. It is sometimes known as “The Phantom of the Answer” or “The Answer Phantom”.
To play the game you need 10 people with 10 mobile phones.
Step 1: Gather 10 people in a loose circle. Each person must have the number of the person to their left on their phone.
Step 2: On the count of three, each person presses the call button to call the person on their left. (ie A calls B, B calls C, C calls D… etc etc… J calls A.)
Step 3: Everyone puts their phone to their ear and listens.
Because everyone is calling everyone else at the same time, all of the phones should be busy. Nobody should receive an answer.
However, what will happen is that one person will find that their call is mysteriously answered and they will hear a voice on the other end of the line.
This is the answer man.
When you are on the phone with the answer man, you can ask him anything. He will answer whatever question you put to him.
However, after he gives you your answer, he will have a question for you. They say that, if you answer his question incorrectly or are unable to give an answer, a large, gnarled hand will appear from the phone and tear off a piece of your body.
According to the legend, the answer man is the ghost of a child who was born severely deformed. When he was born, he had no arms, legs or torso. He was just a head. Ever since his death, his ghost has been trying to become a complete human being by collecting the body parts of others.
