The History of Ouija Boards

Posted on Paranormal Newsbreak by Amanda

The Ouija Board, also known as the 'talking board' looks innocent enough. So, what is the history behind this board, that draws the attention of many?

The Ouija Board was first introduced by businessman Elijah Bond on July 1, 1890. It was regarded as an innocent parlor game, unrelated to the Occult until the American Spiritualist Pearl Curran made it popular for it's use today during World War 1.

In 1901, the 'talking board' was taken over by William Fuld, who started his own series of the board, under the name 'Ouija'. In 1966, Fuld's estate sold the entire business to Parker Brothers, who continues to hold all trademarks.

Are Ouija Boards dangerous? You can ask this to any person you would like, and leave with different results almost every time you ask. Some say that the board may open portals to the other side. Portals that you cannot control, and that could lead something very evil into your life. While others will tell you that the Ouija Board is nothing but a hoax, and is simply a game. Who is right, and who is wrong? I do not think anyone is right, or wrong. Everyone has their own beliefs. Some have negative experiences with the board, that will make them never to look at one again. While others, use the board almost daily, with nothing at all happening.

What do you think? Do you think the Ouija Board is dangerous? Is it nothing but simply a game?
