What Is The ‘Charlie Charlie Challenge?’

TYT Network

What’s the Charlie Charlie Challenge and where did it come from?

The Charlie Charlie Challenge – or variants of it, known as the pencil game or Charlie pencil – has been around for some time. It’s claimed that the game is an old Mexican tradition, but there’s no information on that on the internet.  It seems to have been around for years before it took off this week.

To play the game, get a sheet of paper and draw two lines on it to make a cross, writes TYT Network.  Put a “yes” in the top right and bottom left hand corner, and a “no” in the remaining two.”

Chant the phrase “Charlie Charlie, can we play?” or “Charlie, Charlie, are you here?” If the top pencil moves to the word “yes” after the chant, a Mexican “demon” named Charlie has supposedly been called to answer questions, according to knowyourmeme.com.

To end the game, players chant the phrase “Charlie, Charlie, can we stop?”
