A Ouija board is no more magical than the keyboard I'm typing on right now. People who know nothing about the ideomotor response sit down and subconsciously move the pointer and because they are in the mood to be scared they assume it a paranormal occurrence.
If the pointer could move by itself, free of the human variable, then and only then could it be called paranormal.
As for people's weird stories, mostly anecdotes, urban legends, coincidences, etc.
I'm not saying that something weird has never happened with a Ouija board present merely that it is not the board itself that summons or communicates with anything paranormal.

I would not mess with it.
I have tried it a couple times a long time ago and there is definitely something eerie about the whole experience.
But in the end, its up to you whether to do it or not.

Unfortunately, I think this is complete bunk. There are no spirits or souls that wish you bad luck.
If one has passed beyond the tangible thing we call life, they are free and unconcerned with the living.
The dead are free from the schackles of life. They go on and love free and live free.

I once bought a Ouija board because it looks cool and I liked the spooky-fun idea of it. The reality was, after a few sessions of nothing happening, it found its way into a closet. It later reappeared for my yard sale.

I was a big skeptic of all things spiritual until one day at the hospital a woman was going from person to person in a nightie flashing them she had nothing on underneath,she got to stand in front of me then I saw her pupils change then a male voice introduced itself,hello my name is,forgotten now but it was latin,good luck bastard' then the eyes changed again and she was off flashing again,this is as true as I sit here,the problem with a ouija board is there is no protective circle which is an invitation to trouble.But yes there is bad mother spirits out there i'll vouch for that.
I do feel that the board itself is merely a prop in most cases, but as I said, I have heard some very odd occurences, as well as seen YouTube videos (for example, people ask for a sign of a presence, and suddenly a very relaxed cat becomes on edge, and shoots out of the room), they may just be coincidences.
