I’m all three Didn't stand a chance Highly recommended

They explained at the beginning that everyone was to sit together in one room and light 100 candles and after each person told a scary story they were to extinguish one candle Except they moved rooms and characters disappeared and the candles kept multiplying???We have the chefs go into this room with the candles alone without the rich dudes the characters are divided into the richies and the chefs who just cooked their 5 star dinner but the whole conceit was that you sit together and one at a time extinguish a candle chefs and rich dudes alike I seriously went back to the beginning several times because I was like am I missing something?It was a genuinely terrifying concept that was executed poorly A group of people from different worlds summoned by a mysterious and eccentric millionaire is convinced to play an ancient samurai game where 100 candles are lit and everyone has to go around telling a scary story and extinguish one candle until all the candles are out and a demon is summoned That's a genuinely awesome storyBut this isn't that story
