A game of Death Twister

Death Games are the games that are used by arbiters to judged the souls of the deceased.


When two people die at the same time, their souls are sent to various arbiters to be judged. Usually the participants arrive at a location, without having any memory of getting there. They are told if they want to leave the location, they have to participate in a game with their lives at stake.

Since the participants believe their life is at risk, their their supposed true colors are revealed, which the arbiters observe and use to judge them.

The games are based on real games, usually with some sort of modification or twist. This can range from playing cards with images of the participants' memories to dart boards that inflict pain when hit.

As the games progress, the two participants regain the memories leading up to their death. Eventually, one or both of the them realize that they are dead and are given an explanation by the arbiter. They are told that they were judged based on their lives and how they act during the game, ultimately being sent either to Heaven or Hell.


Episode 6 - Viginti Roulette

The Roulette of the Viginti

The game the two participants play is chosen randomly by a roulette. It has 9 possible slots and is activated by a red button that has to be pressed by one of the deceased.

Episode 1 - Roulette Button

The activation button

It is unknown if the arbiters know the game before it is chosen or if it is truly random. It is also unknown if the games are always the same, rotate slots, switch to completely different games or are created based on the participants.


Episode 6 - Remote

The remote

Arbiters are given a remote to influence a running death game. This can range from subtle changes like making a billiard ball miss to completely changing the rules of a game. It is used to create more tension in games, sometimes forcing the participants to resort to irrational tactics. The remote doesn't have to be used and is only intended to help if the arbiter thinks they can't judge the participants clearly.
