Personally, I would never mess about with a Ouija board. Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, messing with something that could potentially contact people who may or not be there is not something I would not be willing to risk.
Ok, so maybe nothing would happen, but it's the possibility that it could that freaks me out a bit, well, a lot if I'm honest.
But what if something did happen?! What if you did make contact, and the person you contacted was pissed and wanted to mess you up?!
Have a read of these real stories of what happened to people when they decided it would be a good idea to mess around with a Ouija board. I guarantee they won't be doing it again!
10. The Creepy doll
I got a call from my cousin who said that he, his brother, his dad, and his best friend were using an ouija in their basement. Prior to starting they took a large porcelain doll out of the room because it was creepy and placed it in an adjacent room face down on a pile of towels.
My cousin took a short break because the board was just spouting nonsense and he went to take a shit. His dad and brother and friend started asking the board questions without him, one of the questions was who is in the other room? It just started spouting random numbers and when my cousin came back into the room his brother said that it wasn’t working that they were going to put it away and he showed him the answer to the last question he asked and he said “dude that’s my social security number!, then they started to talk to whatever started spewing answers out, it told my cousin he would die in the air force. At this point they tell the entity they are communicating with to prove itself. It then spelled out the word “DOLL” and they were like wtf.
They opened the door to check on the porcelain doll they had laid in the other room and when they opened the door the doll was standing up right in front of the door staring right at them. Everyone freaked and ran out of the house. His best friend burned the ouija board and I think he temporarily went nuts for a few months. My cousin for some reason then joined the air force and is on a base in Europe now.
9. I asked it how long I had to live
We all asked it a question that only the person asking would know the answer too. It would answer the questions.
One question that somebody asked was “what was the name of the boat i went on a cruise on when i was 6?” it answered.
We played with this thing forever, we had coldspot experiences and would place a candle where the coldspot was and the candle would burn sideways not straight up and down.
One night we all asked it how long we had left to live and this is where it gets scary. Everybody asked and they had 50-60+ years left.
I go to ask and it says 10. I ask 10 years and it says days.
I pretty much shit a brick at this point. It said i was gonna be killed in a car accident by a girl named emma. We would ask it 3 days later and it would say I had 7 days left. Ask it 2 days later it said I would have 5 days left and so on.
Im freaking out at this point, carrying a bible in my pocket and wearing a big cross. I finally tell my dad and he doesn't believe me so I made one out of a piece of paper and used a cd to show him. It worked and he flipped out and told me that I didn't have to go to school the day I was supposed to die. I didn’t go to school and nothing happened.
I have no evidence, and I do not care if you don’t believe me. I’ve used a board with results, and let something into my home. And have been physically assaulted by this entity.
It started out with that feeling like you’re being watched, and doors closing, and footsteps on the hardwood when you were home alone. And progressed slowly into being kept awake by something shaking the bed, or pulling off your covers. Sometimes even whispering your name. The board would disappear for days on end, then show up in places you never would have put it. I became obsessed with it. Then it was a black mass in the corner of the room. Or the silhouette of a man watching you from the doorway. After that it escalated pretty quickly. I had my hair pulled. Fingers pricked. Scratched. Choked. Held down in bed while this thing whispered in my ear in what could have only been Latin….. We had our house blessed and the bad thing hasn’t shown back up. Just the normal occurrences now. But I will never again play with one of those boards.

These are the photos of what happened to me after using a homemade Ouija Board tonight. We asked a variety of questions asking the spirit if it was the one who had scratched by chest which had been done prior to using the board. It replied yes and it said that it was “here” for “me” and that it was not going to leave. I pray that it will.
I think the message this guy is sending out is, 'Don't play with Ouija boards, kids!'
Just to be extra convincing....

6 . The Murderous Mother-In-Law
Carol Sue Elvaker was charged with murdering her son-in-law Brian Roach after she, her daughter and grandchildren played with a Ouija board and she became convinced he had to be killed.
The 53 year old plunged a knife into his chest, and also attempted to murder her 10 year old granddaughter claiming she was evil.
Daughter Tammy Roach managed to get the knife from her mother and hid it in the house.
She then went in the car with her mother and two daughters, her mother was driving.
Intentionally driving erratically she purposefully crashed into a road sign, intending to kill them all.
Elvaker suffered two broken ankles in the wreck. The others were injured slightly. After getting out of the car, Elvaker tried unsuccessfully to push the 15-year-old daughter into traffic, despite her broken ankles!
She then managed to escape into nearby woodlands where she was found by police.
To add a twist to the tale, her daughter was then arrested for being an accessory to the murder as she was the one who hid the weapon, the car was hers and her husband wasn't helped, he was left to bleed to death.
So what happened for the pair to become so fixated on what the Ouija board was saying?! Was it an evil spirit that convinced them to kill? Or was it just an excuse to commit the ultimate crime?
5. The Board Told Me To Do It.....
A 15 year old was arrested in Texas for the murder of his 14 year old best friend, when asked for his motive by the police, the youngster simply said; "the Ouija board made me do it."
He pulled the 4-inch blade on his friend in a wooded area behind a high school in Weslaco, a small town along the U.S-Mexico border at the southern tip of Texas.
Another friend who witnessed the stabbing said the boy told his victim to say he fell on the knife after he took him to a garage so they could ring an ambulance.
He spent 3 days in intensive care due to the severity of his injury.
Police who arrested the boy say he had no history or=f drug abuse or mental health problems, and just that he genuinely believe the Ouija board and that his friend had to die.
Who stabs a friend because a board tells them too?! Unless he was temporarily possessed?! Spooky...

4. Die, Bitch
Angela Jackson knew she shouldn't have messed around with a Ouija board, after she was sent a warning message from beyond the grave.
Attending a spiritualist meeting a psychic turned to her and said her deceased father was trying to get in touch with her, he was warning her that he knew she was thinking about using a Ouija board and that he very much advised she didn't.
The mother of two was astonished by the message, as she had been contemplating it, and a few weeks later she tried it.
Angela has been obsessed the the idea of an afterlife since she was a small child, after having dreams that would come true, she even dreamt that her Dad would die, which he did, just a few months later.
She recalls what happened that night;
"My heart thudded with excitement as we all placed our index fingers lightly on the bottom of an upturned whisky glass they'd placed on the table.
"It began to pull in every direction. 'Who is it you want to speak too?' Robert, my neighbour, asked. "The glass started moving towards the letters, spelling out... A-N-G-E-L-A.
"The spirit wanted to speak to me. But then it spelt out, 'Die bitch'. 'That's not funny,' I said. But Robert said, 'Angela, we didn't do anything.' He snatched his finger back from the glass and we all shrieked as the living room door slammed shut on its own.
"My voice quivering, I asked, 'Who are you?' With only my finger on the glass it moved faster. 'I was murdered,' it scrawled. 'Just like you're going to be.'" Nightmare Angela asked again: "Who are you?" and the glass quickly spelt out S-A-T-A-N. She then screamed: "I'm not scared - to hell with you!"
And with that the tumbler flew off the table and smashed into the wall.
She says: "Leaping up, my neighbour slammed on the lights and blew out the candles. 'We should never do this again,' he said.
But they weren't the ones who'd been told they were going to be murdered. I needed to know more."
Begging her neighbors to help her contact the spirit again they continued to use the board, but the spirit never returned.
"Then one night I woke screaming and sweating from a terrible nightmare. I'd dreamt I was being attacked by a man carrying a hammer.
"That's when I knew things had gone too far. I was scaring myself to death. I'm not doing the Ouija board any more, I vowed."
The neighbors moved away so Angela just tried to forget about the whole incident, though she always felt on edge and constantly felt she was being watched. Until one day, the spirit's predictions came true.
"I locked the front door of my flat, then started walking down the concrete steps in the stairwell.
"From behind me I heard a voice. 'Die bitch,' it growled. I froze at the sound of those words. "Shaking with fear, I turned to see a man in a white T-shirt, emerging from the shadows wielding a claw hammer.
"I screamed as he brought the weapon down on my head with a sickening thud. He hit me again and warm blood began trickling down my face.
"I couldn't see where my attacker was I just wanted to get away. "Drenched in blood, I made it to the front door and then collapsed. "Waking in hospital I felt confused and groggy. 'You were attacked,' a doctor explained. 'You've suffered a fractured skull.'"
No-one has ever been caught for the attack that happened over six years ago.
She has this advice for those who are contemplating using a Ouija board;
"If I'd listened to Dad's warnings through the psychic maybe none of this would've happened. "But now I'm warning all of you - never mess with Ouija boards. You don't know what evil lurks in the afterlife."

1. The Real Exorcist
The inspiration for the movie The Exorcist Roland Doe was a young boy believed to be possessed after he used a Ouija board to contact his dead Aunt.
When alive his Aunt, who was a spiritualist, taught the young man, but after her death he used it again to disastrous consequences.
Nine priests over several weeks attempted to exorcise demons they believe were possessing Roland, gaining access to him after he had used the Ouija board.
The word 'Hello' appeared on his chest and thigh, with deep scratches occurring when the Priests attempted to give him the Holy Communion.
One priest even claims he saw the devils face in his leg. His mattress shook and he spoke in tongues.
Though after he was 'exorcised' he lead a normal life, and nothing else paranormal occurred.
Did using the Ouija board open the spirit world so demons could possess Raymond?!
