Do you want to add a little scare to your next Halloween bash? Why not try playing Ouija? This popular board game can be a lot of fun, but it can also be pretty scary. If you’re not sure how to play, don’t worry! We’re here to help. Here I will discuss the basics of Ouija including number of players, hints and tips, and rules. So get ready for some spooky fun!

To play Ouija, you will need:

  • A Ouija board
  • Planchette or pointer
  • People to play with (at least two)
  • Candles and matches or a lighter


Choose an out-of-the way place to set up your game, like a bedroom or den. Make sure the room is well lit with candles placed around the board on tables and surfaces. Have everyone who plans to play gather in the room and take their places around the board. Decide who will be the first player and have that person lightly place their fingers on the planchette. The second player should then say “Let us begin.”

Now what?

The first player should ask the Ouija board a question. It is usual to ask questions that can be answered with a yes or no as this will make it easier for the spirits to communicate with you, but you don’t have to. Don’t force the planchette to move. The spirits will guide it where they want it to go. Be very careful not to let go of the planchette – if it moves off the board, the game is over. Take turns asking questions and giving answers until you feel like you’ve had enough. Always say “Goodbye” before leaving the game. Dispose of candles properly when finished playing.

Some common things people ask Ouija boards:

  • Is there someone or something else in this room with us?
  • What is my spirit guide’s name?
  • How many people are going to die in the next year?
  • Is anyone trying to hurt me?
  • What is the meaning of life?

Ouija boards can be a lot of fun – just remember to always play with caution and respect. With these tips, you’ll be sure to have a spooky good time! Until next time, happy haunting!
