I've only played it once, with 4 other people, in a small apartment.
for the rest of the night when everyone was sleeping, I kept hearing doors open and close all night. They sounded very close by, but from where I was
sleeping, the door further down the hall, and doesn't make the same sound when its opened and closed.
In the Exorcist movie, the little girl got a big surprise from her Ouija board.
Here's some interesting facts about Ouija:
- The Ouija Board ended up outselling the game of Monopoly in its first full year at Salem. Over two million copies of the Ouija Board were
- The layout of the OUIJA BOARD seems to vary from country to country. The original and best layout appears to be to place the yes at the top of the
circle and the no at the bottom.
- The letters are placed in a circle starting with the letter A next to the word yes and continuing around until the final letter Z ends up on the
other side of the word yes. The nine numbers from one to nine should be placed at the bottom next to the no.
- The Ouija Board usually requires a minimum of two people to operate it. It is very rare that one person has the power to operate the board.
- The two people should sit opposite each other and place the tip of only one finger on the glass. The fingertip should only gently touch the
- Someone starts by asking a simple question, such as " is there a spirit present?". If there is no response the question should continued to be
- The glass eventually moves and answers the question. The first time you use a OUIJA BOARD is quite startling.
- Sometimes someone will deliberately push the glass but this is easy to spot. The glass tends to move in jerks rather than free flowing.
- There are stories that Ouija Boards are dangerous to use. These stories are stupid and should be ignored.
- It is helpful to write down the questions you wish to ask before you start. It is also helpful to have a third person writing down the answers as
you go for future reference.
- Once you become experienced at the Ouija Board you will find the pace of responses coming from the glass will increase. In fact sometimes the glass
will speed across the table at such great speeds it is almost impossible to keep up.
- It should be noted that sometimes the communication will be in foreign languages or sometimes it is English backwards. My advise to most people is
to make their own Ouija Board.
- This is simple to do and most effective. Just have a smooth table to work from and cut up small pieces of paper to write on. Any glass will do,
though a wine glass is most effective.
- The responses you get from the Ouija Board will really depend on your attitude and commitment to the Ouija Board.
- The big question many people ask me about the Ouija Board is if they are truely makling contact with spirits and the answer is probably. It should
be noted that when people are blindfolded, the Ouija board operators are unable to produce any sort of intelligible messages. Psychologists believe
the motion of the planchette on the Ouija board is explained by the ideomotor effect.
