A friend recently informed me that they been wanting to get involved in playing with a Ouija Board. That's the problem though, this is not to be treated as a game. I know toy stores market it and sell it to this day which doesn't help by any means. I'm here to tell you, just stay away from it entirely.
I'm concerned for my friend because they don't seem to realize that its very real. You are tampering with the spirits, both evil and good. I played with one a long time ago when I was a kid with a group of friends. We thought it was all fun and games until it didn't even need us to touch it to start moving on its own. We were all very skeptical at first, not sure what to ask as fear had taken over but the rush of excitement didn't allow us to turn back. At that point it spelled out "Dont be scared". The memory is vivid and I'll never forget the entire session that followed shortly after.
Please don't be a fool. Respect the board for what it is and never anger it. Do not trust it either, spirits will and can lie just to earn your trust. For those that don't care though, please do your homework so you know exactly what you're getting involved in. I found a ton of advice on here very helpful. I'm only mentioning this here because I know we have a good assortment of kids who were my age when I had my first experience. If I was naive enough to try it then I'm sure someone else is too. I figure I would give you the advantage so you don't make the same mistakes I made. This was not a easy post for me to make or to even admit to but with recent revelations of my friend this had to be done. Once again please be careful or just stay away entirely.
