I used to own one of those boards - Got it for Christmas one year (off of ebay - the owner seemed glad to be rid of it). Once I first got it, I
actually came onto ATS and read a couple threads about the Ouija board, and read everyone's experiences.
Basically, I tried to get something to "come out", to prove that the board indeed was connected to the spirit world - I used it in a dark room,
challenged any "entities" present to prove to me they existed, and didn't open or close my sessions. I also left the planchette on the board just
to see what would happen. Finally, after about 4 months of nothing happening, I came to the conclusion that I, literally had a "Dead Board" .
It's probably in some garbage dump somewhere, as I threw it out.
There might have been one time that it did work though - One day I took it with me to a spot that I was often attracted to (an old bridge overlooking
a creek where a railroad used to exist), and immediately the board (or my imagination) picked up the name (Mary), and an age (19). The only other
information I "got" was "car accident". Seeing as I didn't have a date or time to reference, every now & then I'll look at the older newspapers
& see if I can find anything that matches (nothing yet).
Just for amusement purposes I'll relay a story from a friend that worked at Walmart. One night, she was walking down an aisle next to the board games
(it was the aisle with girl toys), when suddenly, from the next one over, came a huge crash. When she & another coworker took a look, they found that
all the Ouija boards had fallen off the shelf - even the ones all the way at the back. After joking about them being haunted, and putting them away,
my friend had to do a sweep of the same aisle just before her shift ended. As she passed the ouija boards, 5 of them decided it was time to aim for
her (they fell right behind her).
