Any number of players. Each player has a book with which he is totally unfamiliar, and a lighted candle. He reads silently by candlelight. When he comes upon a word or words suggesting absence of light — ie. darkness, night, blackness — he blows out his candle and begins to play. When more than ten people are playing, those who have been playing the longest re-light their candles and return to reading, repeating the same procedure as before. And so on.
