So I bought a Ouija board for $29.95 USD from Barnes and Noble bookstore. Its made by Hasboro Gaming, glows in the dark, etc. I was told that this board still works like any other Ouija board, except I can't get it to work. I live in a college dorm where I cannot light candles or incense. I cannot get any spirits to make contact with me. The first spirit I tried to make contact with was my late grandfather whose ashes I held in a vial in my hand while trying to make contact. But nothing happened. I waited, asking questions, waited for any answers, and got nothing. The board came with no extensive directions other than the type of batteries needed for the planchette's light. What can I do to be able to communicate with spirits with my board?
Your right that it doesn't matter that much (some people use cardboard and a marker for these boards) but the power has to come from you. What you need to realize is that the spirit isn't moving it you are with something called the ideomotor effect. Basically tiny muscle movements in your hands are moving it from what your subconscious is telling you (which could get what its saying from the spirit). Try meditating and getting into that state before you use it. Try saying something calling any spirit in the area to talk or say the name of the spirit over and over until you feel a presence. Also here's a tip, use the goodbye on the board there are a lot of reasons going around for this but I wouldn't take any chances. And if you do come across a bad spirit, destroy the board and burn it.

A Ouija board is just a game! Playing about with it can drive you crazy. It has no more magical qualities than a game of Ludo! But, if you believe the nonsense, it can be dangerous. It can warp your Mind!
It shoiuldn't matter what comapny made the board. It's how you use it. just like someone can use a kicthen knife as their ritualistic athame if they wished. If you don't believe then that's fine and I appreciate your opinion, but I believe in it.
I've felt the tiny muscle movements, but I thought that was just me getting twitchy.
You need to personalize the board. Cleanse it in counterclockwise motions with a salt water mixture that has been left in the windowsill or outside in sunlight/moonlight for 24hrs. You can use a sponge and wring it out pretty good and dont make the water too salty and also cleanse the planchette. Then prick your finger of choice in a sanitary way and drop 3 drops of blood in the shape of an upright triangle on the back of the board, and also on the planchette. Let dry. Make some chamomile tea. You can put a half a teaspoon of rosemary in a coffee filter and rubber band the top and steep it wg the chamomile to make it more effective. Drink it. Wait a half hour and try again.
I have tried an older model of the one your talking about, and it did work. Blessing it and inscribing it is a good idea. How long have you been practicing magic? Maybe you just need to keep practicing. With magick nothing happens over night. It takes work and practice to get good at anything. do you have any stones? Lapis helps with spirit communication. A small piece would do just fine.
