Everything game comes with an interactive tutorial or a training level nowadays, so when communicating with spirits, possibly demons, wouldn’t you think that there should be a set of instructions so you don’t inadvertently unleash hell or get possessed by a demon?
www.museumoftalkingboards.com has just such a list. A handy reference should you want to use a Ouija or talking board without turning your house into the Ghostbusters firehouse! Here are a couple of our favourites and click here to see the rest!
Never play alone!
Never let the spirits count down through the numbers or go through the alphabet as they can get out of the board this way.
If the planchette repeatedly makes a figure eight, it means that an evil spirit is in control of the board.
If you should get an evil spirit, quickly turn the planchette upside down and use it that way.
The spirit of the Ouija board creates “wins” for the user, causing him to become more and more dependent on the board. Addiction follows. This is called “progressive entrapment.”
The very first Ouija boards were made from the wood of coffins. A coffin nail in the center of the planchette window served as the pointer.
Sometimes an evil spirit can permanently “inhabit” a board. When this happens, no other spirits will be able to use it. (Captain Howdy?)
When using a glass as a message indicator, you must always cleanse it first by holding it over a burning candle.
Ouija boards that are disposed of improperly, come back to haunt the owner.
