This is when the game begins. The goal is to avoid the "Midnight Man," at all costs. You may move throughout your home to avoid him. You can tell he is near when your candle burns out. It will become chilly as well. You'll hear a low whisper, and he will appear in front of you.
You must relight the candle within ten seconds. If you are unable to relight your candle; form a circle of salt around yourself and stay inside the circle from 12:01 AM to 3:33 AM. If you're still alive at 3:33 AM, you've won the game. If you did not escape his clutches; you will be tortured (sometimes to death) until 3:33 AM.
Come back, and let me know if you've won the game.
