What is the Blue Whale Game Challenge? 


These daily tasks start off easy — such as listening to certain genres of music, waking up at odd hours, watching a horror movie, among others, and then slowly escalate to carving out shapes on one’s skin, self-mutilation and eventually suicide.

There is still uncertainty over how a participant plays the game. While some say the user has to install some app on their smart phone, others say it’s via social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook where the administrators get in touch with the participant after those interested throw out postings on social media asking for a “curator”.


A number of different hashtags— #bluewhalechallenge, #curatorfindme, #i_am_whale — act as signals for the anonymous curators

  • Write on a white paper ‘I’m strong, I can do everything I want!’ for 50 times.
  • Take a walk listening some electroswing (parov stelar for instance)
  • Wake up at 10 am, open the window and listen the outside sounds thinking, ‘I’m happy to live’ many times.
  • Go see a sunset while listening some jazz (bossanova, coltrane for instance). Experience its beauty.
  • Try to cook some food you like, eat it with some friends\parents\others you like.
  • Wake up at 5.30 am, have a good breakfast and then go out watch your city waking up. No music here.
  • Try to talk with at least 5 different unknown people about something for at least 5 minutes each.
  • Try to talk with someone who does not like you and try to make him a friend.
  • Take a walk in the afternoon with some music.
  • Take a whole day to do what you like. Life is beautiful; don’t throw it away.
  • Spam these rules to other people.
  • Force yourself to talk with another gamer (or friend or person) about your problems.
  • Try to help another gamer with his/her problems. You can make the difference, you are special.
  • Take a walk with someone, talk about your hopes and desires, and ask about his/her hopes and dreams.
  • Repeat point 1
  • Repeat point 2
  • Repeat point 3
  • Repeat point 4
  • Repeat point 5
  • Repeat point 6

  • Repeat point 8
  • Repeat point 9
  • Repeat point 10
  • Repeat point 11
  • Repeat point 12
  • Repeat point 13

  • You are ready for the last test. Think about your progress, write your feelings about all the steps previously addressed, and give it to a person who you think would appreciate it.
  • Live your life happily. You really do not need a curator to control you. You are free, you are special, remember it whenever you are sad and you feel no way out. I love you.

It must be noted, however, that there still is no confirmation of the existence of the game, and suicides linked to it are from personal accounts of families/friends of those deceased who claim they have seen their loved ones performing tasks. While reports of suicides linked to the game have surfaced across the globe, authorities claim that the origin appears to be in Russia, which has reportedly seen about 130 related deaths and at least two arrests.

Schools as well as police officials in Europe and America have begun issuing advisories to parents urging them to be vigilant and to keep an eye out on what their children are sharing on their social media accounts.
