"The accepted theory is that the participants are subconsciously making small, involuntary, physical movements using a well-known, and well-understood, phenomenon called the Ideomotor effect. Experiments consistently suggest that, at best, the messages are received involuntarily from the participants themselves, and, at worst, by a manipulative player, possibly with the connivance of confederates within the group present."

"Skeptic and magician James Randi, in his book An Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural, points out that when blindfolded, Ouija board operators are unable to produce intelligible messages. Magicians Penn & Teller performed a similar demonstration in an episode of their television show Bullsh&t! in which the operators moved the planchette into what they thought was the positions of "yes" and "no" without knowing that the board was turned upside-down, which caused them to moved the planchette into blank spaces on the board."


thats because part of the process in using a ouji board and having it work involves using ones eyes... the windows to ones soul. geez.

i though u all knew this?

no.. it means if you look at it "somebody" who is touching the planchette is the one that is moving it...consciously or subconsciously...ITS SCIENCE.. jees...besides a my friends played it a long time ago and nothing happend to them..and when i say a long time ago i mean 11 years ago. the most that i can happen is that someone who truly believes in it will get paranoid about it and starts to think things are happening becuase they played it...this game is just a psychological thing...it messes with your mind and beliefs. meh..then i should go ahead and say.. " this is not ment for a person who is religious or the faint of heart " lol i might as well say that opening an umbrella inside a house is bad luck..or a black cat is associated with witches ..HAHAHAHA.. come on people...DENY IGNORANCE.

Absolutely none, absolutely nothing will happen to you. This game is simply a fraud of a game, it's just something for friends to get together and play childish tricks on each other, it holds no scientific value.

I am not religious, and do not adhere to any organized religious belief structure. At the risk of losing any perceived objectivity I might have, I feel compelled to say this.

My mother might have been clinically insane when she was 16, might have been miraculously cured without treatment or other psychiatric intervention when she was in her late 20's and might have remained sane for the last 35 years since that miraculous cure.

Conversely, she might have fooled around with a device similar to one being discussed herein, might have accidentally contacted something, might have been tormented and manipulated by it, and might have had it banished in her late 20's.

I do not know and cannot prove which of the above scenarios is true. I also cannot prove that the device discussed herein is dangerous. All I can say is that I am humbled by the intricacies and complexities of this universe, and know full well that there are aspects of it which I cannot hope to comprehend in my lifetime. Based on that, I will say that I wouldn't touch one of those boards of my own volition, even if my life depended upon on it. Take that for whatever it's worth to you, however little or much that may be.

he said it was horrible

It's an illusion, you are expecting weird things to happen, afew people playing in say a dark room will most likely let their imaginations rule and hype the whole thing up. One person 'sees' something the next will then take it a step further.

You look for something and you will find.

Good luck!


All i'm saying is if you told people who generally believed in spirits and told them to spend the night in a so called haunted house i'm more than certain they would experience some kind of paranormal experience!

everything in this world is an illusion. we live in a virtual reality.... with a true reality outside. so yeh i agree with you.

but the stuff that comes from using this as a tool is more real then real.

Everything is 70 percent mental. It is what a person wants it to be.

Ouija boards are an invented parlor game with no mystical powers whatsoever.

Any real or imagined paranormal experiences mentioned by others on this site are the products of their own imaginations and not from a piece of plastic and cardboard.

If you try hard enough I am certain you could summon 'demons' while playing Candyland.

So is anybody going to explain why its not good without saying "dont do it, it will open doors that are hard to close" blah blah blah. Is there ANY sites or REAL info that tells you what to do, how to protect yourself, and how to use the thing. All these stories dont give us any info, all they do is make me want to get a board and try. You cant tell someone to not do something without fully explaing what could ACTUALLY happen.

The use of Ouiji boards go against religions, many of which mention not to contact the 'spirit world'. I presume those who reccomend it are just going with their beliefs and reccomend from the best of their knowledge.
A how too guide is here: paranormal.about.com...

Remember, an experiment was conducted on the us of such boards and it was found out to be your subconscious.

In regard to playing it safe, I would do it with friends and restrict drinking/ drugs which will heighten your mind into seeing and believing something-if it happens. I have never played myself but I would do safe in the knowedge it is my mind making up what I am seeing- unless being sceptical to such a thing I don't know if it will work at all.

blindfold every participant so there is no way they can see the board


ohhhhhh ... THAT's interesting. I like the way you think.

I wouldn't ever touch a ouija board now ... had some wonky things happen after i did as a teenager. But if I was to dabble .... I'd give this a try. Good idea.

Your a big boy now aren't you? Go out and buy one, see what happens, dont come on here looking for advice in something so childish as a ouiji board!

If your gonna do it ( which i doubt you will) get on with it.

But if you really want my advice then no, coz really! WHAT CAN YOU GAIN???

what you (or anyone else for that matter) believes, with regard to anything in the universe, is completely irrelevant and immaterial when it comes to truth.

what is, is.

as for the board, it means nothing. you can just as well sit down alone and summon demons if that's what you really want to do. sometimes, and for some people, it works. for others it doesn't. don't ask me why.

as someone who has once dabbled in the occult i wouldn't recommend it. the only comforting thing (i guess) which i learned from it is that there is conscious and sentient life after death, and two kinds of spirit, good and bad. quite simplistic really, but that's how it appeared. the spirits i have seen were in human form. they appeared to have bodies and wear clothing, but the matter of which these bodies (and the clothing interestingly enough) was composed seemed much more finer than ours. the bad ones (or maybe i should say sad ones?) i met were upset that they couldn't do a lot of the things we do, like eat, drink, have sex etc. they seemed very desperate to experience being in a body and being mortal. it would appear they had never ever been in bodies at any time in their existence and never would be, at least on a permanent basis. i learned that certain peoples bodies were easier to possess, esp. of those who abused various substances. my experience also indicated that the other group of spirits had possessed bodies at one time i.e., they were people who had lived on this earth and died. they were somewhat distinct from the first group and were waiting for the day they would have their bodies back, what they called resurrection. the concensus from both groups, or i guess at least the spirits i met from both groups, was that having a body is a good thing, and far superior in many ways to being dead i.e., outside the body in spirit form.

i could go on. these encounters lasted almost 11 years for me, starting when i was
18, and the last one was about 3 yrs ago. they started when i began dabbling in the occult. the first few experiences were anything but uplifting. not scary. worse. rather depressing. life seemed dark those few years. eventually i felt like i needed to pray in my own way to free myself of these influences. i prayed vocally everyday for about 2 yrs. my own prayer, not something read from a book. i prayed that god (or whoever the great architect is) would somehow and someday manifest to me his/its awareness of my existence. finally, one december night as i prayed i was visited by my great great grandfather, whom i had never known or known anything about during my life. later research verified who he was. he told me a lot of stuff, but to stay away from these things, meaning occult things, and to concentrate on learning humility (something i have not done yet), raising a good family, and observing the patterns in world events in what he referred to as the winding-up scene (i still don't understand that term really), and that olne day i would have the privilege of sitting ( i think he even said eating?!) with him one day in the near future.

i could go on. but that;s enough for now.
