It isnt anything so much in particular about the board itself that makes it dangerous, it is more or less just a focal point to draw the entity to. One of the reasons many will suggest not using one of your own creation is when you craft something you are putting a part of you into it, so in essence what you are drawing to it is more likely to become attracted to you signature. One of the reasons the board game version is popular is it was crafted by a machine and hence neutral and fairly easy to get. Personally i have never used one, but then i have never felt the need to the dead are best left to rest (my personl opinion). i would say use it at your own risk you may or may not draw something negative to you, just be aware that you might do so unintentionally.

From what Ive heard is that most Quija Boards do not allow you to talk to anyone specific, so trying to contact a deceased family member or friend is most likely impossible to do. If it was possible to do such a thing then a Quija Board would be something found in every home and used on a daily basis to talk those deceased people that everyone is missing in life.

It is my understanding that the board if used "properly" will allow one to make contact with a "spirit" that is in the house or who is in the area of the board in which it responds too. So this contact could be made by a good or bad spirit depending on "who" is around and "who" decides to contact the board users in return.

My two sisters and I bought a board at a Toys R Us of all places once many years ago to try it out and after about 30 minutes of using it the triangle piece we all were lightly touching DID move on its own and the few questions we asked were yes and no questions as all others got no movement. The one question that I remember the most was "are you a spirit that lives in this house" and the answer went to the yes on the board. We stopped after a few questions as my sister was getting nervous because it was her house we were in

To this day my two sisters claim they "didn't" purposely move the triangle piece we were all slightly touching and I for one know that I didn't move it on purpose, so who really knows. I remain a tad skeptical because we were drinking and maybe one of them were playing around at the time
but until the day comes when one of them actually remember if they did or admit it I think it could be possible that the Quija Board works even though I don't think that there will ever be any kind of scientific or actual proof from anyone that will validate any claims of it working or not.

A video of people using one can be so faked as a video wont be able to show if someones purposely moving the touched piece or not because everyone has to be touching it thus anyone can easily make it move. If any contact is made with some sort of spirit/demon or whatever they most likely wont "show up" in a physical form to be captured on film. If they do the person who owns the video will either became an instant millionaire or just became one of the newly deceased themselves.

Try it with those you truly can trust and who will be honest about it and see what happens, and take the experience as a personal one to a level of belief that you feel is most acceptable to you.

Good luck and always be safe when mingling with the unexplained.

All was said IMO,

it has nothing to do with the board itself and everything to do with true belief and intent. you can make a board out of a tree from you backyard and if you truly believe in what you are doing, and the intent is there, you can contact spirits. The Ouija Board is a tool and tools are not needed to contact spirits. All you need is what is inside of you.

I have heard all the stories of the ouija board and its mysterious power. And one person in paticular got me curious after hearing her stories. So I looked and looked for a ouija board...being from a small town,I ended up getting on on the net, which I ended up paying close to $24. for. You can imagine how excited I was when it finally arrived...and on my mother's birthday (she and I were very close and she passed away tragically 2yrs ago on my bday) and I said if there is ANY way at all to attempt to contact her,I will.
Well I tried EVERYTHING...From lighting white candles, getting flowers, saying chants, warming the board up, doing it with my male fiance' and then female best simply does NOT work.
So all of u that say it does or either on some really good stuff, have a wonderful imagination, or should really tell me what in the world is the trick??

You have to let people go.. It's part of life that we all face. Don't do that to yourself...

As far as the board.. I've tried as a believer (being younger..) and as a skeptic... Nothing happened either time. Not at 12:00, 3:00, at my house with candles, at a graveyard.. It's all in your head. Sorry to bum you out..
