Ouija? Oui! Ja! October 1, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Magick & Mystery, Spirit & Ego.

As a kid, I loved playing with the Ouija board with the girl next door and her twin sisters.  I remember spooking ourselves on dark dreary days and during the wee small hours before dawn during weekend sleep overs.

It’s been years since I’ve seen a Ouija board . . . until I stumbled across this clip:

Good luck.

Good fun.

Good bye.

Aah . . . that’s better!

I remember going to a friend’s house and playing with her Ouija board and watching Dark Shadows…good times!

Linda watched Dark Shadows too. I wasn’t as enamored with soap operas as she was . . . so that’s when I did my homework.

I liked watching Creature Feature on Friday nights.
So C~R~E~E~P~Y! 😯

Creature Feature! OMG… with the hand that snatched the letters? Loved it!

Jill Weatherholt - October 1, 2018

I never even knew it was considered a soap opera…I was to busy hiding my eyes! 🙂 Oh yes, Creature Feature was the creepiest. I know you’re a THIS IS US fan, Nancy. I finally had a chance to watch the season premier while working out this afternoon. Wow! That show turns me into a big cry baby. 🙂

I watched the first season of This Is Us . . . and part of the 2nd season before deciding . . . (you guessed it!) . . . that it was a soap opera and I lost interest.

To me, any show that requires that you watch EVERY episode in order to “keep up” is a soap opera. I don’t stick with them long. I enjoy watching “stand alone” shows that you can watch haphazardly without losing the thread.

Dark Shadows! Wow… that takes me back. Collinswood? Ville?

Jill Weatherholt - October 1, 2018

I know! Collinsport!

There you go!

Same here, Jill. I watched Dark Shadows when I was in grade school. A friend had a ouija board too.

Jill Weatherholt - October 2, 2018

We would have been good buddies. 🙂

nrhatch - October 2, 2018

Have you two ever met in person? I expect that many of us would hit it off like long lost friends.

I only played it once. I got so spooked I refused to play it again.

nrhatch - October 1, 2018

You should try it again . . . with a margarita by your side! 🙄

Kate Crimmins - October 1, 2018

Yes, now I have a good dash of disbelief!

nrhatch - October 1, 2018

Healthy disbelief is better than unhealthy naivety! 😀

Good clip, I love history. We had a board when I was a kid, but even then I knew it was crap!

nrhatch - October 1, 2018

I wonder if a small medium at large could get it to work right? 😀

Enjoyed the history. We used to play with one as kids in the country…on the porch with one dim lightbulb hanging on a cord. It is spooky!

Perfect venue and “atmosphere” for Ouija!

5. Debra - October 1, 2018

I also watched Dark Shadows and also joined friends in Ouija Board adventures. We were convinced it was real! LOL! Great video! 🙂

I am enjoying my recent reminiscing ~ first about summer (thanks, Jill!) and then about Ouija. I was always a bit “skeptical” but did enjoy wondering . . . “what if?” 😯

When I was a kid we played a lot of board games, but this is one that we never warmed too. Interesting to read about its history though.

Unlike Monopoly, which depended on the roll of a dice . . .
Playing Ouija meant embracing things that go *bump* in the night. 😯
