"Tim Boucher: The Ouija Board traces its roots to spiritualist practices of the mid-nineteenth century using “talking boards”, planchettes and pendulums, and perhaps indirectly beyond that to divinatory and shamanistic practices throughout history."

Trust me ya'll they are very very real. My mother wouldn't let me buy one when I was 11 and I wanted one. My father went behind her back and got it for me. My brother which was 9 was sleeping one night and woke up screaming to top of lungs. We took him to hospital while he was in a terrified condition and they diagnosed him as being possesed. We brought my uncle over to house without telling him what happened and when he walked in, hairs stood up on him and he immediatly blessed the house and crossed the windows with little gold crosses. My brother had snuck into my room and used it and it fle... [More]

Seems possible. That's what bothers me. There are such good arguments on both sides, and no way to disprove them. I would like to comment on the Ouija board because I have used one and in the beginning it was a strange and mysterious thing and I was terrified of it to the point that once my daugher and I tossed it into the trash can but later retrieved it. My First experience was when my neice about 10 and I were home alone trying the Oujia board out. It began to move and as we sat there it spelled out Stergio is dead. This was very sad because Stergio had recently died and was not doing well ... [More]

If the demon comment was being pushed at me, trust me my brother wasn't playing a demon. He was possesed by one. One that had haunted him from sleeps to walking down the road and he was a willing participate till by talking to this demon until it showed itself as what you would call a satanic demon. My brother said it alwas was covered in a white cloak till the night he woke up screaming in his bed and he screamed he was seeing something we wasn't able to. He contacted this demon thru the board and allowed it to enter our home and enter thru him. So if you say they are real then how can you sa... [More]

Im a very strong believer in the Ouija board and would say to others to stay well clear of it. I used a Ouija board many years ago and it messed my whole life up including my families. It is pure evil. I'd agree with that. Was actually *diagnosed* with possession?

My sister(Who I can trust in not to lie about these kinds of things) once told me and my mom about a time when her and her friends used one for the first time. They did it at night with the lights off and she said after they tried a few times, the board just flew up and stuck to the ceiling. I don't remember any other details about the story being that it was a long time ago, but that's enough to keep my scared ass away from one. They all ran out the room and later when they came back the board was back in the closet where it's usualy saved.

Hiya i just wanted to say about my experience with the ouija board. Me and my friend decided to do the ouija board, when a program with Darren Brown was on. He was doing a seance and did the ouija board after. The glass started moving, it got alot faster and we couldn't understand what it was spelling out. It started to slow down and spelt dad die. We then got scared and stopped. the experience shook us up, and we would never do it again.
