paulafromtwoson: Ouija/Talking Boards

Hello, everyone!

I'm sorry the community is off to such a slow start. I've been spending a lot of my time reading an extremely informative and interesting book, The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the various aspects of documented spiritual activity.

Meanwhile, I've been looking around to replace my tacky glow-in-the-dark Ouija Board (no self-respecting ghost would visit it ^_^). Since talking boards (the non-trademarked name for Ouija Boards and the like) are basically starter kits for holding your own séances, I figured it would be a good way to start out.

The instructions can be located here, or I found this authentic photo of the instructions that were printed on the back of older, wooden Ouija Boards:

I plan on beginning a personal séance log to record, in details, the contents of my future séance sessions. The idea is to make a basic record of the proceedings, whether or not any phenomena is experienced. Because I'll be doing my best to keep only serious participants in my séance circle, I realize that there may be sessions where nothing of interest happens.

I do, however, plan on posting all interesting experiences here, in the community. I also plan on audio recording my sessions--if I encounter something of special interest, I'll be sure to post the audio record here, too.

If anyone else in the community has an Ouija Board that they use, please feel free to post your experiences!

Finally, I thought

This is the description of the most current version of the Ouija board game as described by toysrus.com.

I found the first "feature" to be especially funny, but pretty much the whole description is humorous. "How it works has been a mystery for over 30 years"? While that is true, for a game that started in 1848, it may be a bit of an understatement ;)
