I've read several articles and info about the Ouija board. On Wikipedia it says that the board was designed as a prank game: one or two friends are in on the joke, another isn't. They all place their finger on the pointer thingy and asks questions. The friends who are in on the joke then move the pointer around and the other friend, who doesn't know about the prank, thinks that it is real.
A few of my family members told me that they played with the board or saw someone playing with it when they were kids and that it was more than just a prank, its real.
On Youtube there are a lot of videos of people playing with the board and then the pointer starts moving without them even touching it. In a lot of these videos people move a magnet under the table so that it looks as if the pointer is moving by itself. Then there are other videos where you can actually see that the pointer is moving by itself and that no one is moving it at all.
I've read on many places that only bad spirits talk to people through the board and that makes it dangerous.
I've never used an ouija board, and I'll never play with one. I don't mess with things that I don't know much of.
So what is everyone's opinion on this topic?
