The Ouija/Spirit Board is a tool to communicate with the dead, including famous figures from the past. It has been used over the years by Mediums and Clairvoyants to make contact with the dead and the planchette moves to different answers or letters on the board to clarify this. It was originally used by the China dynasty around 1100 BC and has since become knows as part of the occult. In modern days it has been used by many different groups and individuals but still retains its authentic content from when it began. We are now as a society becoming more interested in the afterlife and its popularity is again soaring. It is a fascinating object which is still used in exactly the same way as it was when it first originated.
