Hello I just wondered if any one does this when playing a game and it is a spooky game and the room is to bright .Wait for it ,Put a blanket over your head and just the front part of the screen so that they can see beter .

Doesn't it get hot under the blanket?
Anyway i don't dare to put a blanket over my head while playing a spooky game though it might indeed add something to the Spooky atmosphere. I'll try a sheet first.

Dragonuk, just saw your last post.
I mostly play games at night or midnight. So now i understand better why you do this thumbsup

My puter is down stairs. All I have to do is drop the shades and turn off the lights, and it is dark happydance

I know my sister has done something similar though as her puter is in a very sunny spot wave

I've set a blanket over the glass by my monitor when playing a game in the day. I never put it over my head. Usually I just wait to play the ghostie ones after nightfall.

Dragonuk44, just an idea..if you put a bed sheet up on the blinds - it should make the room darker - and you'd be more comfortable without the blanket wrapped over you lol wave

Another solution would be to move to Scandinavia where half of the year the light is limited smile

Renne very good .Never thought of that one .Got comments from people who have caught me with the blanket or a coat over my head .Wonder what they would think if they saw blankets hanging up ,Could buy some thick curtains I guess .Is Scandinavia cheaper than England lol .

In Scandinavia they sell really thick window shades so they can sleep during the summer months. You might check around to see if you can find shades like that.

I've done it many times! It does get hot, and my hair gets mussed. But, when it's too light I can't see when playing dark, spooky games. So, out comes the blanket. You do what you gotta do!

I play spooky games at night with the lights out.
If I play at daytime, I cover my windows and close my roomdoor
that I can see something in my monitor.
Never tryed a blanket, have to give it a try *lol*
