Ouija board: the Parker Brothers game.

The ouija board game.

About the mystery of the 'guided fingers'!

No other single, mass-produced item quite captures the imagination of the American public like the ouija board. Is the ouija board just a toy as many claim, or is it a portal to the spirit realm of the ghosts where one may find the answers to life's many mysteries? Ouija refers to the belief that via this method one can receive messages during a seance by the use of a Ouija board and ouija planchette. However, the game became 'big business' since the end of the 19 century when it got patented in 1890; decades later the rights got sold via Parker Brother to Hasbro in 1991. Hasbro has continued to hold all trademarks and patents: about ten brands of talking boards are sold today under various names.

The fingers of the ouija participants are placed on the ouija planchette which then moves over a ouija board covered with numbers, letters and symbols to spell out messages. The ouija board is usually inscribed with the alphabet, the words 'yes', 'no', 'hello', 'goodbye' and the numbers 0 to 9.

The Ouija has brought many people an ultimate experience that goes far beyond a psychic reading presented by any psychic medium! And even though this spiritual game can bring YOU an interesting experience, it is important to be aware of the possibility that anybody might get fooled by subconscious results induced by one or more of the participants!

Ouija: the mystery of the guided fingers.

Be aware of the subconscious results!

Various ouija research experiments have shown that the subconsious of the players is very likely involved in the ouija results. Skeptic and magician James Randi, points out that when blindfolded, Ouija board operators are unable to produce intelligible messages. Ouija Magicians Penn & Teller performed a similar demonstration in an episode of their television show "Bullshit!" in which the operators moved the ouija board into what they thought was the positions of "yes" and "no" without knowing that the ouija board was turned upside-down, which caused them to move the planchette into blank spaces on the board.

The accepted scientific theory is that the participants are subconsciously making small, involuntary, physical movements using a well-known and well-understood phenomenon called: the 'Ideomotor effect'.

However, many people keep wondering about questions like: 'How dangerious is the ouija really?' Speaking about the danger of the ouija, it is likely wise not to take all stories about the board too seriously! In general, unstable people are recommended not to get involved in any type of psychic entertainment.
