Wow. I can't believe how many people actually think there are some sort of ghouls and ghosts being transmitted through a piece of plastic that has a glass lens that rests upon a piece of printed cardboard and only moves when people put their hands on it...

I'm wondering if Hasbro has a special part of their factory in which Harry Potter is enchanting all of these Ouija boards with "spiritual pathways" to allow the ghosts and spirits to enter??

Many people have found out the hard way that the Ouija board is not something to play around with...that it isn't a toy. Demons, not "ghosts", make the thing work. Evil unseen spirit forces are very real. The Ouija board is a doorway to their manifestation...

Maybe its a hang over from my upbringing but I just don't think its a good idea. I have often said its not that I KNOW there is no god or satan but I have seen no evidence. I do believe in evil, but I just don't want to invite something like that, whatever it is, into my house.

I have noticed that the demons conjured up by the old Ouija boards made of wood with glass lenses are much more evil than the imitation Chinese demons conjured up by the new boards made of of cardboard and plastic.

I will never forget the way she looked. She was pilfering through my Grandmother's purses. (My Grandmother kept several purses hanging behind her bedroom door.) She looked up, and glared at me. I was terrified. I took off running for the living room. When I told what I saw, they told me I just imagined it. But that was the last time they ever played at night.
I don't personally believe there's anything to them. However, if someone does, I'm not going to ridicule their belief.

I played with ouija boards as a kid.

Never had any weird experiences or anything supernatural (scary ghostlike sounds inserted here).

Yes I have. It is an interesting psychological game. I think people more or less experience what theyexpect to experience with it.
