No, that picture is not from the 1970s - it was taken here at Rock Father HQ this week.
When you open the box in which Classic Ouija is contained, there are only two things: a sturdy, wooden board (as it was, and as it should be) and the oracle itself. What's incredible is when your four-year-old, who has never seen a Ouija Board previously, proudly announces, "I'll teach you how to play this game, Daddy."
She placed her hands and mine upon the plastic oracle, at which time I asked, "How do you know this?" She looks at me and states very matter-of-fact, "They show it right on the front of the box." And she's right.
Whether you're asking a harmless question, or trying to connect with the spirit world, the box itself speaks volumes with a simple phrase: "OUIJA--It's only a game--isn't it?"
I still remember playing with one of these in the basement of St. Paul's Church in Monee, Illinois in 1989. Something Someone made it tell us that The Devil was in the room.
The Classic Ouija Board is available from Winning Moves Games' official website.
