What is a Ouija Board?

My cousin and I would use the Ouija board daily when we were younger. It was always a phenomenon to receive answers to our questions. We would accuse each other of rigging the game, though I knew we weren't doing it on purpose.

The interesting and mysterious Ouija board (talking board or spirit board), created in the 1860's, uses a movable indicator called a planchette that indicates a spirit's message by spelling it out on the board.

It's a paranormal communication device that many have come to know through the movie The Exorcist. This movie is about a young girl being possessed by a demon where the girl used the Ouija alone.

Two or more people sit around the Ouija board, placing their fingertips on the planchette, pose a question and watch as the planchette slides from letter to letter to magically spell out the answer.

What do you want to know? Ask the Ouija board anything and the spirit world will answer.
