Builders find old Ouija board behind a vent

The spirit board was found stuffed inside a heating vent by builders carrying out renovation work.
Workmen must come across a lot of strange things behind walls and under floorboards, but imagine tearing down an old heating vent and finding a Ouija board hidden behind it.

This was the scenario faced by a group of builders recently who made the unexpected discovery while renovating a property dating back over 100 years.


The board itself appeared to be quite old and is believed to date back at least several decades to a time when the building's previous occupants, for whatever reason, decided that it needed to be hidden away where nobody could find it.

Who they were and what happened to them however remains a mystery.

I think freetoroam nailed it in this case, but (as someone with experience in the spooky arts) I have to make a comment about the Ouija Board. Ouija is just a board game, just like a crystal ball is just a sphere of glass, but they can be effective tools. Ouija is a weird phenomenon, and has been practiced in various forms for centuries. Its use seems to attract a particular type of deceitful, low-level spirit. It is never your amiable grandmother that comes through, but something more sinister. I have known many people who have had seriously bad experiences with it, and deeply regret their in... [More]

When my brother had a new kitchen fitted, inside the partition wall that was knocked through they found an old soldier's beret carefully placed in the brickwork. Maybe he lived there after serving during the war, or maybe it was done as a joke/hoax. Why it was put there, we will never know. The same applies to this Ouija Board discovery.

So it's an old Ouija board.  Is it a vintage version?  That could make a fortune on Craiglist
