How to play


  • Credit to DwayneSmith from Reddit.
  • Apparently this game originated in either Germany or Russia.
  • Title translates to ‘gnom gnom priyti’, which roughly means ‘gnome gnome come’.
  • You can only play this with an odd number of people (1, 3 etc.). Everyone in the room must play.


  • A piece of chocolate, type doesn’t matter.
  • A piece of paper.
  • Scissors.
  • Tape.
  • A large blanket (should completely cover all players).


  • Make a cone shape from the paper using the scissors and tape.
  • Enter the room where you will be playing.
  • Dim the lights and cover all windows. The room doesn’t have to be completely dark, just dim.
  • Place the chocolate on the floor and cover it with your paper cone.
  • Sit around the cone in a circle, or in front of it if you are playing alone.
  • Cover all players with the blanket and join hands if playing in a group.
  • Throw the blanket off and knock the cone away with some force. It should be knocked as far as possible.
  • Turn on the lights. If a gnome was near the chocolate will have teeth marks.

Safety first

  • As usual, be careful flailing about in a dark room with other people.

Risk level

Low. Apparently if you don’t follow the rules the gnome may bite your toes.

Would I play?

  1. How long do I have to wait to throw the blanket off of me and kick the cone? Immediately after I cover myself with the blanket or…?
