A Very Creepy History Of The Ouija Board

A bit of harmless fun or a direct line to malevolent spirits? The history of the ouija board is creepier and even more intriguing than you imagined.

In 19th Century America, spiritualism took off in a big way. This new religion stated that the death of the physical body doesn’t spell the end for the person’s spirit, which simply transitions to another plane of existence — an otherworldly realm mostly undetected by the living, but bridgeable using specific techniques and rituals.
