But when you know people who have used it and had their friends possessed or controlled in one way or another, you don't think the same of that "game".
Really? Possessed or controlled? After playing with a Ouija board?

Please feel free to elaborate.

Unhappy Passive & aggressive parents

She was NOT happy, and took it away and put it up along with giving some strong words about how bad it is. Now I am not religious, but my wife is and personally to me it's no more harmful than any other board game but obviously my wife views it very differently. I told her she was overreacting but she would hear none of it. They were all upset of course, but nothing they could do now.

To me, it's not a issue at all, but what do you think? I realize this may have a lot to do on whether you are religious or not.
IMO, your wife shattered whatever trust their is or ever was between her and her DEPENDENT child who will most likely leave homes as soon as possible ( I would). Your wife storms into her child's room, rudely humiliates her in front of the other kids, hysterically takes away their {innocent) fun and demonstrated that parents cannot be trusted, respected nor LOVED as reasonable friends and guides.
And to make matters worse, you, the other powerful adult in the home, PASSIVELY LET IT ALL HAPPEN! Are you ever going to stand up for and PROTECT your defenseless child from your emotionally disturbed wife? Or will you passively lay low until your child walks away from that miserable home the day she turns 18?? One of you parents needs to do what is RIGHT by your child and it looks to me like your are the only one left to save her from the other very sick parent;

Hah, I was waiting for someone to comment back with high skepticism. I don't blame you. However, the people I have talked to who have encountered situations like this didn't joke around when talking about it. Any time something like this happened they spoke very plainly about how scary it was and how afterwards they would never use the game again. Generally the person being possessed/controlled had no recollection of anything that happened during the game and often they were very shaken up afterwards. Again, all of this is based on what people have told me. There will always be naysayers out there and I'm not going to try and convince someone otherwise, but I know plenty of people who have experienced supernatural things (in general) and while playing with that board.

Spirits of dead people huh? Gee.... Ouija boards have been around for years and years. You'd think by now Oswald would have surfaced and said something like, "I did it alone you idiots. Find another conspiracy theory."

I agree that there's not point in arguing about it. But I think that peoples' imagination gets the best of them and they start to see, hear and feel all sorts of things that they blame on the Ouija board.

After inadvertently positioning the plastic bag over my head a couple of times, I was finally able to thoroughly saturate my old Ouija Board with all of your recommended components, including an ample amount of Swamp Miasma, Satan's Breath, and Potpourri Refresher Oils.

I swear to God you are psychic because this afternoon, after I executed a series of scientific tests, I placed my hands on the planchette and asked, "COCKIE! COCKIE! COCKIE! Did the Baron von Blixen give you the CLAP too?" I swear I could feel Cockie's spirit in the planchette, but before I could get her answer there was such a ruckus outside that I rushed to my window to take a peek! I videoed this. https://youtu.be/ORSvf8eVa0g

What madness have I unleashed?? Too much Midnight Sepulchral Fog? I was forced to call Long Beach Animal Control.

Anyhoo, on a lighter note here's a lovely song from our favorite Norwegian, Myron Floren! https://youtu.be/0ziYB_73u2E

I hope I have better luck contacting that Stotesbury woman of Florida!! Yikes! I wonder how the Czar measures up to Floren and and, to quote Lawrence Welk, "Myron Floren and his busy fingers!"
MERCY, what Myron could do with those busy fingers!!! If I was with a man like that, he'd have me jumpin' around and hollerin', like Luty Pearl at the Pentecostal Brush Arbor Meetin' (https://books.google.com/books?id=M6...0foote&f=false). As I see it, all the Czar might have over Myron Floren, is his smokin-hot and tickly MOUSTACHE (https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...bd65500a0c.jpg). I'll ask Mrs. Stotesbury about that, next time she appears to me.

As for the mishap with the reptile infestation in your front yard, I think I see your problem, hon. I think things took a turn for the worse, when you tied the bag over the Ouija, WITH YOUR HEAD IN IT. Didn't you read the part, when I said, "...you don't want to go breathing the gases"? And to compound the problem, you added the Potpourri Refresher Oils to the Ouija Board Refresher Vapour Crystals. Somehow, the presence of your head in the bag, opened up a time warp wormhole, just as the Vapour Crystals and the Potpourri Refresher Oils were forming a hithertofore unseen synergy.

This uncharted synergistic effect was THRUST, simultaneously, into SEVERAL reptile-bearing eras, with the Wormhole left unclosed. I assume you used the Agraria Bitter Orange, which reportedly exerts a disquieting effect upon your larger reptiles.

And did you also use the Lavender & Rosemary? That blend is thought to inflame the passions of many cryptids. So, it's no wonder they leapt through the wormhole, and started a battle-royal, right there on top of your prize-winning Frangipani bushes.

Honey, the Potpourri Refresher Oils are for your Potpourri. And the Ouija Refresher Vapour Crystals are for your Ouija Board. And your head is supposed to stay out of the bag. I think it's the combination of all three, that's the root of your problem.

Oh, and you might want to check to be sure those things didn't lay any eggs...

There are two sides to the board.

One is harmless fun IF someone is pushing it around on the others.

But the Harm comes when NO ONE {for real} is pushing it. There ARE energies you DON"T want to mess with.

Our close friends {considered family} have a 25 year old son, who though it would be great to have a few friends over and "have a seance" and play ouija in the creepy stacked stone foundation basement of their circa 1820 Federal Revival "mansion". He thought it was funny.

UNTIL: later upstairs he was taking a shower in the clawfoot tub shower with a single oval shower curtain ring around it connected only where the shower head is. In the middle of his shower, he noticed the curtain sliding all the way around open around the single oval ring. He heard but saw no one as heavy boot like foot falls retreated.

However, there was NO ONE in the bathroom, and the door was LOCKED!

He's cured on ouija forever!

Perhaps he has, but the recipients of the message are too dumbfounded to give voice to their readings!
