Ouiji has been looked upon as an evil art. It has been cast aside as evil in many religions, and banned in some places. Most people who have used these items called Ouiji Boards, have seen/heard mysterious things. Some, haven't had a single thing happen to them. The Ouiji Board, apparently was invented as a way for the living to contact the spirit realm. Others look at it as a fun game to play at a sleepover.

Once, my friend came over and told me about this board game he bought at Toys R' Us. I came to his house, and me, him, and one other friend were gonna play it. So, we turned the lights out(we had one lamp on) and played. When we did, we moved the cursor to HELLO. And when it responded, I got wigged out. My, nor my friends were moving it. So I pulled my hand away and went home. It freaked me out. And the next day, one of my friends was diagnosed with Syphilis, which I think is a sexually transmitted disease. And tests proved negative of sexual intercourse.

What is it behind the Ouiji Board? Also, you can post your stories on it here too!

I personally have never used a Ouija board. My personal belief on it is that it has little or nothing to do with the supernatural.

Half the time, when your friend says "I'm not moving it!", he's lying. He is moving it to screw with you. The other half, both (or more) of you are subconsciously moving it. There may be a very small percentage of times when something weird is afoot, but not moreso that weird things occur with eggs or tea leaves or kitty cats.

In short, I see nothing uniquely supernatual in a Ouija board.

Please explain how an STD test for syphilis is capable of determining whether sexual intercourse was performed. I think someone is yanking your Quiji.

There are ways of determining if somebody has had sex recently, although sicne syphilus has a waiting period, he could have been infected outside of a detectable time frame.

I don't want to be the one who says this, but is your friend male or female? If she's female, she may have been raped a while ago and be afraid to tell anyone.

Or you could be messing with us, but I'm one to take chances.

I have to agree with the other members it does not sound right.

no. it went like this. My friend is a she. She was tested, and she has NEVER had sexual intercorse at least not recently. But I would have thought the syphilis would have kicked in a alot sooner. But it happened soon after we used the board. It could have been natural, but yet it aslo could not have been.

Ouija is the world for "doorway" in Polynesian. Hello doesn't always activate the board but spelling out "welcome" in Polynesians always does:

This is the link to an internet Quija board. I am sure it will not be as scary as real one, but it could be fun.

Is a Quija board the same a Quiji board?

ouija is a trademark, and cannot be used without permission. I think Parker Bros. owns it.

As I remember it was copywrited about the same time as monopoly. People have been using an alphabet and planchette for centuries. "oui" and "ja" are fr and ger. for "yes." Which made the board unique enough to copyright.

I understand. It seems similar in concept to using a pendulum, excepting that a pendulum is used by one person. Both a quija and pendulum send chills down my spine. However I have participated in one quija session with 4 people where the table raised off the floor several feet. I have never experienced the like with a pendulum.

I do see what you are saying. And I have seen that site before. But thank u George.

I own several boards-including an original 1919 William Fudd Board. I have heard some real horro stories, and I have heard some positive stories too.

Bottom line, people have practiced Divination since the beginning of time


The Boards are not "haunted", they are simply a tool. Like a hammer.

You can use a hammer as a tool for building, or tearing down. It depends on the intention of the user.

I have never personally used a ouija board just a little too freaky right especially after listening to so many doorway stories and they can open you up for hauntings however one night on Coast to Coast George Noory related a story about a night when he had a ouija board in the broadcast room and computers kept wigging out and sound would go on and off finally his producer took the board out of th room and the technical difficulties stopped. Just a little weird story I thought I'd pass along.

I remember when this happened with George Noory (I listen to Coast-To-Coast every night)


However, as I pointed out, the boards themselves do not come with "spirits". If they did, The Parker Brothers Factory would be the most Haunted Place on Earth.

OK gents, there's only one way to settle this. I'm gonna have to find somebody with the guts to test one out with me. I had this idea before actually, but nobody would agree. My brother said "I aint gonna play Ouija Board, you can play Hide and Go Fark Yourself." Except for fark, that's really what he said, and it was enough to end the discussion at the time.

So anyway, i'm gonna fish for a skeptical partner who won't move the dang thing just for fun, and if the devil tells me what happened to Atlantis or anything like that I'll let you know. (my guess is that nothing will happen, although i've heard some real horror stories and I am a little nervous about it)

Ouija boards have been debunked so many times it not even funny. Here's a little hint guys. IT'S A FREAKIN' MASS PRODUCED BOARD GAME!!! no different than Candyland or Monopoly. But nobody claims to have supernatural experiences with these games. wonder why? because the supernatural isn't part of the games mystique, thats why.

I remember using Ouija boards when I was a kid. I remember we supposedly talked to some native american spirits and some guy that used to be a football player. It was great fun. One person was even picked to just watch and write everything down as the pointer moved. We even made our own boards with a peice of cardboard, and used a small drinking glass as the pointer. Man, those were the days.

Thanks for the memories,

I believe in Ouija Boards.

That aside, the Ouija board did not give someone Syphilis. Syphilis is a sexually trasmitted disease. The symptoms of syphilis can show up within 10 days to 3 months after exposure. I asked my wife, who is a nurse, about this test to see if someone has had sexual intercourse lately. She said there is no such test. The statement, "she has NEVER had sexual intercorse at least not recently" doesn't make any sense. Either this person had sex or they have never had sex - it cannot be both. There is also a small chance that she received the disease through her mouth. I think your friend might be telling you some stories.

I've tried it out with trusted freinds and had a unusual experience. We were kind of " out of it" but we started by asking if there was anyone there, instant yes. After that we moved to say what is your name, the reply, deuce witch after researchin it later was a slang for satan. After that response we asked, are you good, and two candle's in the room projected flame about 6-7 inches high and we stopped the "game" abruptly, I haven't touched a oujia board since. this is just my experience.
