Ghosts: When Ouija Boards Go Wrong!

Readers, here are some scary examples of ouija board issues!  Although these were popular when I was growing up and were actually marketed as toys (seriously!) – many people have traced paranormal problems to the use of ouija boards.  Read on . . . reblog from Paranormal Magazine, author Charlotte Lowe Kemp.

  1. My mother bought me a ouija board for my 12th birthday when I was in boarding school, thinking it was just a toy. It was confiscated before I got a chance to use it and I never saw it again. A few years later, some friends and I experimented with a makeshift ouija board we’d cobbled together with a tray and a beaker – and got results! Definitely not a toy.

  2. I tried Ouija one time but it didn’t work… I was disappointed but then I’m glad nothing crazy happened.
    I don’t think I would try it again. Then again I do stupid things all the time so you never know, he he.

  4. I remember playing with one when I was a kid, but not getting it to do anything. There is a lovely scene in the 1924 Colin Firth/Emma Watson movie Magic in the Moonlight with a Ouija board. Emma Stone plays a psychic. The movie is set in Provence in the 1920’s so the clothes and visuals are stunning…but that would have been the time when the boards were most popular. It is well worth seeing, even if you’re not a Colin Firth fan.
