  • About the Edition

    One game. Six students. Five survivors. It was only ever meant to be a game. A game of consequences, of silly forfeits, childish dares. A game to be played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University. But then the game changed: the stakes grew higher and the dares more personal, more humiliating, finally evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, fourteen years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round.

      In Black Chalk the author has fatally chosen to keep his readers in the dark for the duration of the book.

If a film ever does get made from this material one can only hope that it will be more coherent and rewarding than the pages on which it is Author: Christopher J. Yates. Oh, hey!

    DIY Black Chalk Finish Paint: A couple of days ago I posted some pictures on my Facebook page to show a bedroom set that I painted this summer that I had not yet blogged about. The reason I hadn’t shown the makeover on the blog was because I didn’t have great pictures. I had taken them in my garage and in the back of the truck before delivery. Black Chalk revolves around six students who, in at the fictional Pitt College of Oxford University, engage in a secret competition of dares and humiliations for an eventual prize of ten thousand pounds. Regulated by a mysterious trio known only as Game Soc, the challenges quickly escalate from innocuous pranks to personal embarrassments that soon cause the friends to turn on each : Jaime Lubin.
