|So you've decided to try
and contact the spirits. More fool you! Haven't you heard
the stories... But seeing as your decided on the matter - here's
how to make your Ouija board.
Essentially the making of a basic Ouija board is very easy, look at the
pictures opposite and duplicate it. The design can be as simple or
as elaborate as you like as long as it contains the same basic features.
(1) The letters from A-Z - these can
be laid out in any fashion with the most common being the two row method
(2) The numbers from 0-9 (usually
running from 1 through to 0).
(3) Yes / No. ( used by the spirits in
the answering of questions).
(4) "Goodbye" - the means by
which the spirits let you know that the session is finished.
(5) The final necessary element is the
'planchette' this is the pointing device used (moved around) by the
spirits to communicate with the user. Most commonly in the
form of a heart shaped pointer with a hole in the middle through which
the letters can be seen, however an upturned shot / wine glass works
just as well.
As long as all these basic elements
are present the actual design and construction of your Ouija board can
vary greatly from simply cutting out the letters on cardboard and
arranging them, to burning the letters etc. onto wood with a burner -
you can keep it as basic or be as elaborate as you choose.
- 'Shop of little horrors' takes no responsiblity for loss of sanity /
life or for any unpleasant entities released by your actions.
