I have made and played with a ouija board before, and it is very real. It is not only real, but something that I did because I did not believe in its power. I doubted every part of it, until it was working even with me being a sceptic. I don't know if you are a Jew or Christian, but if you are, you have been given specific rules not to mess with such things. You may be intrigued in the beginning, but you are opening doors to things that hold greater consequences. It is not always the best idea to know all the answers.

YOu can get hurt or attacked by demons or evil spirits like that so if u do this ur screwed forever pal. I am warning u this may sound fun but at the end it ends terribly. Trust me.

Ah, the witchboard. I tried one long ago but the only thing it did was glow in the dark, and that was merely by design. I suppose it all depends on how well your spiritual battery charges the medium. I have heard many stories, but never witnessed anything myself. There is also an improvised version of the game called "ask the glass" that I hear works just as well.

This site seems to have some information on the Quija Board that you might find entertaining: They have a Q&A on it and I think the most amusing question I found was, and I quote:

"The other night while using our Quija, we were attacked by a Class 5 low level elemental. Or maybe it was an astral corpse or semi-animated shell waiting to dissolve. After threatening us, it made scary noises and made the planchette fly around the room."

And to the mods, I am not sure what the rules are on quoted material, but if it needs to be deleted or rewritten that is not a problem. Sentences may merged, words replaced and daemons interchanged to protect the identities of the innocent, to be sure.

Oh I did a ouija board in school. I thought it was a bit of a laugh and all that. Nothing bad happened after.

One of my friends however got really messed up by it.

Now, I'm not saying the devil was plageuing him or if the experience had caused something to happen to him, but he kind of went weird for a while. He got better, although it took about three months.

Keep away

Heed the warnings that have already been given, and stay away from the ouija board or you'll be SOOOORRRRRRRRRRYYYY! Many people who tried the ouija board as you are thinking of doing regretted it afterward. They started having strange disurbances in their homes which they had not experienced until they dabbled with the ouija. I hope you know when to follow good advice.

People who meddle with the ouija board are inviting trouble. Kinda like opening the door of your home to burglars.

I myself have never played- yet I think I would experiment. It is extremely easy to be sceptical until you try it.

A very reliable friend mentioned her and her female friends once 'played' the game, the glass did move and spelled out one of the females names and gave a warning of her intentions n life and to distrust her, during the 'game' they each took turns in removing their fingers to ensure a player wasn't moving the glass. It turns out after many years the women are all still friends and nothing strange occoured afterwards- but still many of the girls still held a distrust of her.

I have also been told a story of another girl who's father committed suicide, she contacted him and recieved a positive response that everything was ok and he still loved her and her family he left behind.

In short, experiment all you like- I have heard both good and bad. I would look more into it and advice on how to keep safe and I hope you have a good experience with it.

The danger with the ouija board is that the people using have no way of knowing what is coming through. Since whatever arrive on the scene and starts communicating is incorporeal and invisible. It could be a demon or some earthbound departed soul of an evil sort. Since they can't be seen from this side evil spirits can claim to be anyone, even a departed relative.

Quite true.

IMO, if necessery precautions are listened to and practised it would be more than possible to have a positive experience from it. Say you took up rock climing with your friends with little knowledge the experience could be dangerous- a little know how and it can be extremely enlightening.

Everything in life can pose a risk- knowledge is power and looking at both sides of the spectrum will help to enlighten you. Simply saying no don't doesn't seem much help. Similar to the fart button ad above, many may say don't press it- yet the curiosity is there- I mean who hasn't

In all seriousness though, I think you have made a wise choice in talking to members, further knowledge would be required if you are going to contact the spirit world- minus the knowledge and it may have serious consequences.

I have two ouija boards, and have never had any success with either one.

Although, in one entertaining session, my friend and I were purposely moving the pointer and had a third friend walk past a window. The fourth friend, totally unaware of our intentions, became immediately freaked out and thought he was possessed. To this day he swears that he was possessed by the "ghost" that walked by the window. While all experiences may not be as easily explained, it should be something that at least sticks in the back of your mind; your subconscious can easily be convinced by nonrelated activity.

A long lost friend of mine has dabbled in almost every aspect of divination, and ritual magik (his speciality) and after much research decided to dabble with the ouija board, brought for his birthday, one evening after a few cases of beer was brought in for a late night drinking session.
I was unable to be present due to work commitments and, considering the events that followed, I was glad I was not there.
To compress this experience into an abridged version, the result of the seance left the participants with an unforseen uninvited guest! Within 48 hours the house was vacated while assistance was sought to send this malevolent entity back to the abyss from where it came. Eventually, after a ritual exorcism had been perfomed, activity from a force unknown faded and the house was calm again.
This experience moulded him into a more cautious person. The board was burnt on November the 5th at a bonfire barbeque at his home with all those friends who, on that night,participated present.
His advice to others...."Be careful what you hope for, it may come true."

Messing with the board as a kid, it never worked. The first time I used it as an adult, it was spelling out messages directed to each person in the group that only they knew the answer to. Later, it started spelling things that we thought were gibberish until a person who was on the other side of the room watching (not participating) informed us it was speaking in German (this guy was from Germany and the only German speaker in the room.

We decided at that point to stop. This was a mild experience but I haven't touched one since.

I have owned an ouija board for about 10 years, but only used it a few times with varying success.
I have never been possessed nor had 'Captain Howdy' around, never had stuff flying around the room or the planchet whizzing around the board. However, I would say that if you're unstable in any way or emotional then it could be a bit risky. I believe its more psychological than nether worldly like a voodoo curse, you force yourself to believe it's real so it becomes real in a sense.

I know some people will disagree with this, but when you hear all the storys about demons, devils and possession, you make yourself more prone to the negative side of what ever you make "contact" with.

If anyone disagrees with this, please point me to documented evidence that proves that you're contacting demonic forces and not some silly Bible quoting. Ouija boards outsold Monopoly when Parkers released it and we don't have thousands of people running around spinning their heads and asking Jesus to partake in interspiritual relations!!!

When you bring someone through who claims to be a WW2 fighter pilot whos plane crashed and burned, then the board actually catches fire in front of you with no source of ignition, then you`ll realise...this stuff is not to be messed with.

The scene is also set by using an empty building and darkened rooms. I tell the story of a 1974 suicide pact between 12 students, gradually revealing more, including film footage, of Jane, one the deceased characters. I arrange the pictures to manipulate the participants into focusing on Jane.

The tools – the ouija board, pen, blank paper, glass, letters of the alphabet and flat surface as well as the spirit cabinet – match their expectations of the kind of environment associated with the paranormal, and encourage them to believe in the trick.

The ouija board is one of most interesting. We've all heard stories of things flying off walls and people being menaced by spirits, but if you start asking around, a lot of people will say: 'We did it and nothing happened.'

When the glass moves on the ouija board to spell words and the person in the spirit cabinet throws the tambourine thinking they are possessed by spirits, it is actually my suggestions that have encouraged them into involuntary behaviour. This is common to a lot of mediums who genuinely think they are communing with the dead – I suppose this could be called unconscious fraud.

In fact, the whole event is a set up to show how people can be manipulated. There was no suicide pact in 1974 and Jane is an actress who is very much alive!

They did indeed make contact with Jane the dead woman, all convinced they were talking to her- until 'Jane' was brought out in the end, very much alive and they found out the glass was being moved by the group, all of which pushed the glass.

Hmm I've always been a bit skeptical about these things, hearing different stories about them. But I'd rather be safe than sorry and just give it a miss.

As someone said before you could suffer psychologically from it you know? Instead of bringing up demons or whatever it could mess with people's minds or subconscious, which is never desirable.

Hello mate,

I dont wish to rain on your parade what eva you choose to do, its upto you. I personally wouldn't advise it based on my own experiences. Just to explain im not religious, and i have no experience with the supernatural, knowledge wise anyway, but some freaky things have happened to me and friends before.

I have done ouija boards a couple of times, most times nothing happened it was a good laugh and know one got hurt.

One time tho me and a bunch of friends were at a house party we thought it would be fun so we made a ouija board out of paper and glass. Nothing happened glass didn't even move. We just left the bored there and carried on with our evening nothing eventful happened till my mate made everyone shut up he pointed at the board and the pieces of paper we had put the letters on were all spinning on the spot... really freaky, everyone just shut up and looked. The whole party stopped everyone came to the living room, all the pieces of paper blew off the table apart from five pieces in know order they were M, O, R, E and YES then everything stopped. The daughter of the owner of the house Shelley was really shaken, we cleared up the paper and i sat and talked to her.

About five minutes into talking to her she suddenly screamed, jumped up and ran out of the room my mate went and tried to comfort her and find out what was wrong, she sobbed that all of her mums dolls (her mum collects dolls that are on display in the living room) were now facing backwards my mate came in and to see for himself and they were boy did the hairs on the back of neck stand up then we questioned everyone seriously to ask if they had done this but know one owned up and besides someone would of noticed there were over twenty dolls! Anyway the night was wrapped up knowone really felt like partying shelley stayed at a friends and that was the end of that for that night anyway.

Two days later a glass apparently flew of one of the shelves and hit her sister in the face scarring her for life on her right cheek she could of been blinded a series of weird incidents started happening in the house stereos turning themselves on full blast lights turning on and off, anyway they move out within a month of the night we done a ouija board the mystery has never been solved and i that night had never been so scared in my whole life.

Moral of the story dont f##k wid the unknown i certainly will never take part in ouija board again and i certainly wouldnt advise it but its upto you mate just remember curiosity killed the cat.

Sorry bout bad grammar and layout.

The Ouija board is a game. Milton Bradley sells one that glows in the dark.

If you are really interested in tapping into the wisdom of the ancients and the unconscious mind, then I would suggest that you devote your time, money, and energy to the study of the I Ching (Book of Changes). It's not nearly as easy an exercise as playing with a toy, but the knowledge gained of yourself and the world around you will be well worth the effort.

The Wilhelm/Baynes translation is by far the most accessible to the Western mind.

Follow Nancy Reagan's advice and "just say no!"
Seriously, the board helps you open the door and that's where your ability to control things stops. You will not be able to keep whatever wants to cross over from crossing over. The entities that are at peace may or not contact you but the troublemakers sure will! Anything I have ever read about Ouiji boards has warned me off them. Please be careful!
