Thanks Iuvparanormal, for your comments to this story. Yes I did learn my lesson in a fast hurry. Never played that so called "GAME" again. I am also supprised it is in the store for children to buy. But I suppose it still is. I have not been to a toy store in a long while so don't know.
The one I talk about in this story, was like a flexiable one made of like cardboard material. The one my husband had (ex-husband now) was a harder board of sorts.

[at] Whitebufflo, well I didn't burn it, the girls mom did. But you know maybe the spirits still there. As I have seen, felt stange things seems nearly all my life so, that could be true about the burning of it. I don't own one myself, and never will after that.
But when I met my husband, some friends of his kept the board in his closet in a spare room.
Every time I go in that room the board be out, set up like someone played it. I put it back in the closet.
I married him and this kept up until I finally, put tape on all four ends. Dropped it into a drop box for the goodwill and left it there.

It is amazing that they would even have these things in the toy eisle 😠 How there are even given to kids as gifts. Well, I think that you have learned your lesson as well as the other girls. So, thank you for the stories as the others this one was great!

Hi Flutter,
After William Fuld designed the Ouija Board, (he had twenty-one patent registrations in several different countries.) he was quoted as saying: "Call it a game if you like- laugh at the weird, uncanny messages it brings you if you dare, but you'll have to admit that the Mystifying Oracle Ouija gives you the most intensely interesting, unexplainable entertainment you've ever experienced..."
The Ouija Board actually started out being called The Wonderful Talking Board. Fuld did not design the IDEA himself. Earlier than 1850, some were using baskets accompanied by pencils, others were using a planchette with pencils, and when that was found to be too hard to decipher, they simply got rid of the planchette and began what is called automatic writing. The idea of the Ouija, itself, has been around for an unknown amount of time, but production began around 1886, according to the New York Tribune.
In the early to mid 1800's, Spiritualism was all the rage. It seems as if you could find entire blocks joining together to speak to their departed and to be a Medium was something to be proud of. This act is not new, it is just coming into it's own revival with the new interest being in Spiritualism and such based religions.
I went into a bit of history there as I have my own personal feelings about Ouija, (which I have expressed on this site previously) and I do not think them to be evil in themselves. I think that in people's ignorance of the PROPER use of the board, there the danger lies.
Ouija boards should be buried. You simply cut the board [if you should happen to be in possesion of one of the "sturdier" boards, BREAK it (use a hammer if need be)] into seven separate pieces, and bury it in the ground. This sets the spirits in your board free.
Do not burn it. It is said that if you do burn it, the spirits within the board will be forced to haunt you for the rest of your life.
Thank you.

First of all thanks [at] Anna12 and Ramzey.
[at] Tonith, yes you can use this story if like after your Halloween parties you have.
[at] KimSouth0 I think the portal open was just plain ole Evil, and I don't know how to dispose of an ouijia board properly. So how did you find this out?
[at] Frawin, yes happen long ago. It was when the first ouija board came out. I am okay now just could not figure out how this could all happen. But reading others stories I can't see where these are any kind of a toy either.
[at] deathcipris Yes I am glad this what ever it was didn't, follow those girls or myself around too.
Thanks everyone for your comments.

Wow, you are lucky that whatever it was breaking those bottles didn't follow you around afterward. I am glad to hear that you are safe though : )

Hi Flutterofwings. Thank you for another interesting story, I really enjoyed it. I assume that this happened a long time ago and you aren't in dire need of help right now. You just need help in understanding it,right? I personally don't think you all(yep I'm country) opened any portals with the board, it sounds more like poltergeist activity given off by all the young girls there that night, they were all the right ages.
Take Care and God Bless.

Unfortunately, many individuals thin kthat these items are just toys, or they don't believe what they are told and they continue to use these things. Nothing good has ever come from a ouijia board that I have heard of.
I wonder how many portals where open that night? And, as I learned the hard way, there is aproper way of destroying and disposing of a ouijia board, I was not aware of that either.

God Bless!

Not sure about all this suspition with oiuja boards. I have owned one since I was 14 and frankly I believe the way they work is due to our own subconcious. I also think young people have a lot of kinectic energy that is natural at that age so that could account for the bottles breaking.Someone's clothes being shredded that is a mystery for sure but if bottles can burst guess the same energy could rip fabric. This energy is not supernatural but preternatural. There is an explanation we just haven't discovered it as concrete evidence as of the moment. The theory of mind over matter has been explored and some seem to have a gift for it while others will go through a lifetime and never experience any of it. Great story. I always have Halloween parties and usually after most guests have left and there are only a few of us, we get down to telling of odd incidences in our lives and I would love to relay this story to my guests. It is unusual and interesting.

Oh man... I did the Quija thing... I had a horrible experience too. Those things are too powerful and I hate them. I used to believe I had some sort of "connection" with one that was one of the first made ~ still think I do with that one, but, these things just aren't meant for anyone who doesn't know how to control it. I don't think anyone knows how to do that... Except for the person who made it ~ they might not know either... I'm glad you are safe.

I'm sure everyone that has tried Ouija all have the same message: "Ouija boards are dangerous..."
You found that out yourself. Be careful!
