The Ouija Board, or the talking board, is simply a flat board that contains a specific pattern of numbers and letters that can, in theory, be used to talk to the dead. The Ouija board is often tied to the occult but is also sold in mass amounts by Parker Brothers. Is the Ouija board a black magic device or a children's toy? Can it be defined as a novelty item? Is the phenomenon explained by science or does it have a super natural explanation? The Ouija board is a mystery.
