Skeptics claim the behavior of Ouija boards are due to the Ideometer effect.

It is true that when the participants are blindfolded..the board does not work.

..but.

If spirits are truly using the board as a medium between this world and the next, is it possible that restricting our own senses limits the tools used by spirits to make contact?

another Ouija poll? For better answers(and for people to not repeat themselves) just use the search.

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