Ouija Boards, Anyone ever experiment with one?

I tried using one, but the planchette kept flying off the board.

Yes, back in 1972, we nearly died of fright. We were all about 11. Never again.

I did, and tried to contact my friend Captain Howdy.
I don't recommend them.

I had a friend growing up who had almost a phobia of Ouija boards because an aunt of hers had been using one once and gotten a mysterious cut on the back of her hand. She would mention this any time Ouija boards came up.
I used one once at a party in college, we tried and tried and couldn't get it to spell anything.

It's all bullshit. Get a third friend to watch you and a buddy playing it with both of your eyes closed and see how many coherent answers it spells out.

Nice try R9 but the British Empire had already expired by 1972.

Yes, my sister and I got one for Christmas when we were teens! I still have it but haven’t used it since then. Nothing ever happened with it. Oh sure, we got the planchette to move and spell out words but I don’t recall anything scary.

Played with one once in Junior High while spending the night over at a friend's. His cat freaked out, stood on its hind legs to peer over the table edge and yowl at the board, and that was the end of playing spooky party games that night.

Think about it. Would Parker Bros. really market a gateway to hell to kids?

We had one when I was a kid, but barely managed a few answers before it was abandoned in our boredom. Then, after 'The Exorcist', we were too scared to try it again.

I have a black cat and crescent moon octogonal ouija/spirit board that looks like the one linked below. I inherited from a friend who died a few years ago. I'm thinking of using it this All Hallow's Eve to communicate with him.

In my experience what you get is lower level connections via spirit boards. Unless you are working with a practiced medium don't touch one. What's most important during spirit communication is intention. It's not a game. It's for healing and learning. The spiritual realms are as complex and interconnected as the biodiversity of any ecosystem. There's plenty of venomous plants and animals that seem very attractive.

R2 what happened?

I was living on Long Island in the Mastic area before it was built up. They started digging out to build a house catty corner from me. Every night at around 11pm I would hear what sounded like young kids playing. Two friends and I decided to ask the Ouija board if someone was there. We sat with our legs touching (we didn't know that that helped make a connection) The planchette started flying. it was so fast we didn't even have time to read it. One my friends said you two do it and I'll write down what it says. My other friend and I decided not to look at the board and let the other friend read and write it down. After a while our arms were tired and I said I wanted to stop but the one writing said Don't stop! I already have 2 paragraphs. We stopped after 3 paragraphs. There had been a Native American tribe in the area we lived in about 100 years earlier and the area was surrounded by some swampy land.
I can't remember most of what the board said except it told us that an 11 year old girl by the name of (can't remember but it was not a name that we had ever heard of) had drowned in the bog. None of us knew at the time what a bog was so we had to get the dictionary out. There was another word we had to look up too but I can't remember what it was. If I remember correctly it was her and her friends who were making all the noise at night. I told my other 2 friends to pray for her that night which we did and we never heard anymore noise from the area.
What we didn't know at the time was that the friend that was using the planchette with me was psychic as she hid it because she hated it and didn't want it. I am sure that played into the board being so responsive. BUT I intuitively knew that the board could be really dangerous so I put it under my bed that night and then threw it out when I moved. I advise everyone to not use them.
There is a small antique store in my town and he loves Ouija boards. A psychic came into his store and told him that there was a really bad spirit attached to one of those boards. He just laughed but he isn't too smart about these things. His mother told me he has all kinds of antique stuff in his bedroom and he is always having nightmares. He refuses to believe it is attached to these things. He recently bought a suit of armor worn during the plaque. He woke up one night and it was standing at the bottom of his bed. The next night he woke up and it was standing next to the bed with it's head down near his head looking at him. Gives me shivers to just think about it. I don't know what he did to it. I rarely go into his store and won't buy anything from him because I don't want to bring it home.
Don't play with a Ouija board unless you know what you're doing.

The famous 1992 Vallecas haunting in Spain supposedly started with a Ouija board session that was interrupted by a nun. The teenage daughter or the family was supposedly sickened by a spirit and died.
Is it me or are European hauntings much more dramatic and detailed than American ones?

The movie Veronica is based on that case R31. It is terrifying.

I've posted this before, but since you asked, here it is again. When I was 12 and my sister was 14, we were at our neighbor's house for a barbecue and the neighbor offered to let us go in and play with her board games. Among the games was a Ouija board, so we decided to see what it was all about. At first we asked it silly stuff like about school and boys etc. Then we decided to ask it more serious things, like did it love God? It flew over to NO. Then we asked it who it was. No answer. Then we asked it "What is your name?" It spelled out L U C I F and at that point we freaked out and threw it in the closet and ran out of the house. I'm 53 now and she's 55 and our memory of it has never changed or wavered. I know I wasn't controlling that planchette. My sister still swears she wasn't either.

There was a freaky In Search Of episode about Ouija boards and spirit writing that scared the skin off me as a kid. They filmed some "researchers" or whatever do a session where the planchette was zooming around like R33 describes. I think they're all on Youtube now.
