The Ministry of Education has slapped a ban on the suspected demonic  game, the Charlie Challenge, being played in schools.

Chief Education Officer, Marcus Edward, confirmed the ban, saying that the measure came after reports that a number of children who have played the game have been traumatized, requiring the intervention of Counsellors.

Schools around the island were advised of the ban in a circular that was sent out by the Ministry on Thursday.

The game is said to be a simplified version of the 'Ouija Board' and is said to summon a Mexican "demon" named Charlie.

The "Charlie Challenge" entails placing two pencils on a piece of paper in the shape of the cross with the words 'yes' and 'no' written in each quadrant.
Participants then repeat the phrase "Charlie, Charlie can we play?" in order to connect with the demon.

The 'demon' is then asked specific questions and the top pencil moves and points to a response.

There have been reports of Saint Lucian students in both primary and secondary schools fainting, being traumatized and having nightmares after playing the game.
