    Ouija "weegie" Board, fake or for real?

    Too afraid to try myself but not afraid to admit it, and don't know anyone who has used one. Often wondered if they are for real or just a made up fictional paranormal board game. I just don't believe the board piece moves on its own or there is enough energy or force to move or guide the players' hands holding on to the board piece.
      Don't even know if that's how it works just seen it in movies.
    What do you think,  any real experiences with weegie boards?

    They're manufactured by Parker Bros. and available in Toys R Us stores. Nuff said.

    Just by coincidence, there was a paranormal investigation show on the same night this question was posted called Ghost Hunters. This episode had in its story a weegie board. A weegie board session that had somehow gone bad 42 years ago and led to "demons" being present In the house the weegie board session had taken place in (I don't know how the weegie session had gone bad, I missed that part of the show).  The owner of the house collected weegie board and stored them under his bed. An obvious non-believer who in this episode turned believer, that is of course if the show itself is to be believed.
    As FatFreddysCat says in his comment below, weegie boards are made by Parker Brothers and are available in a toy store. The fact that weegie boards are made by a toy manufacturer and sold in a toy store is the basis of my skepticism.   Although it is commonly accepted and known that capitalism and the quest for profit is the motivation for producing weegie boards, its presence for sale in a toy store could mean that it is not a dangerous product and undermines the tales of weegie board horrors.
    I still don't think I would try one, too chicken.

    What they show in movies is completely fictitious, the board cannot work that easily. People holding hands cannot gather enough telekinetic energy to move the pieces, unless each of those people are master meditators with tremendous mind powers.
    The board is supposed to work, from what I have heard. But my personal belief is that it's not the spirits that make the pieces move, that would be just too dramatic. I find it easier to believe in some kind of telekinetic strength in certain strong-willed people. But I will only believe it once I see it with my own eyes.

      I have to see it too to believe it. Or as a close runner-up to seeing it, hear from someone who has a true story and experience. The movie depiction of weegies helps sell the boards - the board piece cannot move that easily.
      Thanks temptor94.

    Probably not, but why welcome trouble if it could be?

      ... exactly why I won't try using a weegie board - just that little bit of doubt can bring on trouble.   
      Thanks Theophanes.

    I don't think Parker Brothers were around when the first Ouija boards were made. Real or not my grandmother always said they were evil and she would not allow one in her house. She was quite superstitious.

      I think it is very wise to not keep one even if they are sold in a toy store. I don't recall any good stories about them. Their use seems to invite unpredictable and likely bad things to happens  - if the stories are to be believed. 
      Thanks Diana.
