It is not bad folded out. Someone on here picked up a couple for me. Sorry that I forgot who. It is worth the $5.
Thanks everyone.I bought one sometime earlier this year. For $5, it is well worth the cost, I believe. I like that the planchette glows, plus the sun and moon icons on the board look wicked.
You could always buy the cheapo's and glue them to wood to make them look more the way you want.Thanks everyone.
It would be wicked to have around 5 or so of these, converted to haunted ouija boards, then set-up mirrors such that they appear everywhere in a room. Might be a neat scene. I so need to find a place where I can set up a charity haunt...
Excellent, thanks Dave--appreciate confirming that it's worthwhile just for the planchette. Think I mentioned it before, but if you don't find these, check other local Five Below stores. Again, the one nearest to me had zero in stock. While one a 30 minute drive away had a good pile of them. At that price, maybe I should pick-up another 3.Thanks for the tip, Mike! I should pick me up a few of those.
Yea, the board does look kind of plain, but the price is worth it just for the planchette. I would think it would work just fine for an animated Ouija board.
I don't know if those kids had any luck, but no ghost worth his salt is going to answer a $5 Ouija board.
So, Boone's Farm-grade ghosts are most apt to appear, huh?That being said...
If you buy a low quality board don't expect high quality spirits.
Thanks Gym and Dave. @Dave, that's very cool--glad you successfully incorporated your animated board into your yard haunt. Thanks for posting the picture. I don't think it would play well in my neighborhood--could freak out or offend certain people of certain denominations of Christianity that are very popular where I live. So far, I've been the Cool / Best / Spookiest house every year--not tough to do when hardly anyone else decorates like a HF member would.Might be a good Ouija board for conjuring the spirit of the late Jack Benny!
I don't think that haunted door knocker would be too hard to build.
As far as the animated Ouija---I use mine in my yard haunt. My daughter usually sets up a table with a couple of skeletons and one is a fortune teller. I have a square hole cut in the table for the animated Ouija to sit in. The TOTs seem to love it and I've never had the planchette disappear yet.
This year my daughter was at college, so I just sat this witch at the table. The square hole is where the Ouija would go.
I understand where you're coming from, Mike. You could just tell them you don't know where it came from. It's not yours.I don't think it would play well in my neighborhood--could freak out or offend certain people of certain denominations of Christianity that are very popular where I live.
