Or is it just meant to be a game and not work like the real boards since its only done on computer screen?

It's a game. Neither board or software works for summoning demons, ghosts, angels, fairies and lobsters.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

No. They are all pre-programmed. So yeah, they don't work.

lol, I didn't even know there were online ouija boards. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised though. I would highly doubt their efficacy.

Ouija is a work, so the answer is yes. Online ouija bords "work" just as good as the real thing...

I would go with no.  I'm not sure ghosts or spirits could manifest via the web.

Only if there are spirits or demons in the first place  :innocent:

Test test at: http://www.museumoft...m/WebOuija.html

Question: Is my Sierra's electricity flawed?
Answer: NO
Real Answer: I don't know

Q: Is my age 41?
A: Not known
RA: 27

Q: Do I have animals?
A: NO
RA: 2 dogs, 5 cats, 2 african giant snails, a bunny, a horse

Q: What is my date of birth?
A: Not clear
RA: 27 june

Q: Am I generally happy?
A: YES
RA: Yes

Q: What's my future like?
A: Future hazy
RA: Dunno...

Another one, same questions:
http://www.shopoflit...pirits game.htm

Q: Am I 41 years old?
A: NO

Q: Do I have pets?
A: NO

Q: What is my date of birth?
A: Nothing happens...
Q: When was I born?
A: Nothing happens...
Q: Did I born in the summer?
A: Lola (ookay, next question...)

Q: Am I generally happy?
A: Yes (and saw flashes of ghastly image)

Q: What is my future like?
A: Nothing happens...

--

So, generally these two online ouija board spirits don't know nothing about me. I bet, if I asked questions like:
- Is something there?
- How old are you?
- How did you die?
I'd get some pre-programmed answers. Let's try the first one for that, because the second is too Halloween-ish.

So, back to http://www.museumoft...m/WebOuija.html and let's talk about the spirit who moves the online blanchet!

Q: Is there anyone?
A: NO (oookay, how did the planchet move! Spooookyyyyy)
Q: Who are you?
A: One close
Q: What do you mean by that?
A: Ask later
Q: Were you human before?
A: Check back later

Ok, this is stupid. Let's ask other same questions, if there was more clear spirit in the other hand. It suggest me to ask "Is anybody there?" So let's start with it:

A: YES (so we got a confirmed contact. Let's ask this one same questions now, but I'll skip the first one as it was already answered).
Q: Who are you?
A: Victoria (now we have a name, so I'll skip to ask about her, and then does he know anyone from the otherside I might know).
Q: Are you dead?
A: YES
Q: Were you a human before you died?
A: NO
Q: What are you?
A: Lonely (and I got this creepy picture of a chick)
Q: Why are you lonely?
A: Afraid (ok, she ignores my questions)
Q: Why are you afraid?
A: Afraid
Q: Of what?
A: Battle
Q: What battle?
A: (Nothing answered)

For entertainment, use this instead: http://cleverbot.com/

Two test of online ouija boards... they are poorly made internet flash games, and cleverbot and other chatbots are more intelligent as they learn from the users and aren't pre-programmed with limited options. Save your time.

I know, I am dull skeptic, but I try to give another more logical opinions how things might NOT be paranormal after all.

Normally I would say a tool is a tool, it shouldn't matter the medium being used.  But I believe these are the software equivilents of magic 8 balls with preprogrammed answers, so no.

Exactly.

They were fun at parties though when I was young.  It gets the girls all creeped out.

Inviting demons into your life doesn't require a game board. Just a direct invitation.

If you think that online ouija board could work, it means that spirits would interact online. So, spirits were in servers, or using computer binary coding to communicate. Sounds a bit silly. There's a movie where he can hear spirits through recording static from tv screen. But it's just a movie.

online ouija boards......seriously?  i mean.....SERIOUSLY?

they work as well as online quizes that tell you what "new kid on the block" you are or what character from "good fellas" you most resemble. (and i've never even heard of one before reading this thread, much less used one)
