OUIJA

The original "Mystifying Oracle!"

Everybody remembers this game from when they were growing up. Who didn't swear that the Message Indicator wasn't moving on its own, guided by an unseen hand?

This faithful re-issuance of the classic game comes with the sturdy wooden board, original graphics and the plastic message indicator (known as the planchette). Perfect for your Halloween Party or casual weekend seance.

"It's only a game--isn't it?"

We make no claims or judgements regarding the veracity of the Ouija Board -- we do know that it has thrilled, terrified and excited generations of kids at slumber parties & adults at spooky get togethers. Its roots lie in the 1840s, when spiritualism was gaining popularity in Europe & the US. In the 1860s, reports of a new style of "Talking Board" came out of Ohio.

Originally manufactured by the Kennard Novelty Company, its creators claimed that Ouija is an ancient Egyptian word meaning "Good Luck"-- but the name is more recognizable as a combination of the French and German words for "yes".

Speaking either to the game's popularity or to the departure of Charles Kennard from the company, in 1891 the Kennard Novelty Company became the Ouija Novelty Company. The version you probably remember playing as a kid was from Parker Brothers, who debuted the game in 1966 (check out retro TV Commercials below!).

The modern version is licensed by Hasbro, right here in our home state of Rhode Island!
