If you've seen "The Exorcist" lately, the folks at Parker Brothers would like to extend a heartfelt "Captain Howdy-Ya-Do?" courtesy of their newly luminescent classic Ouija Board equipment. It's the same traditional setup as it was decades ago: the alphabet-and-numbers board with "Yes," "No," and "Good Bye" spelled out in turn-of-the-century mysterious script; the heart-shaped "Message Indicator Oracle" with the readout window; the numerous coy references to Ouija being "only a game--isn't it?" So if this edition seems to comprise a bit more plastic than we remember, the promise of the board and indicator glowing in the dark for half-an-hour (after exposure to lamplight for 10 minutes) more than makes up for it. Of course, in the dark you'll never know for sure whether the person across the board is the one pushing the indicator, now will you? --Tony Mason
It has always been mysterious. It has always been mystifying. And now, it glows in the dark. Just ask it a question and wait to see what answer the Mystifying Oracle will reveal to you. You and a partner sit on opposite sides of the board, with your fingers placed lightly on the message indicator. One of you will ask a question. Now concentrate very hard on the matter at hand - and wait for the indicator to move and begin to reveal the answer through its message window. Will it tell you Yes or No. Will it give you a number or spell out an answer. For centuries, players have brought their questions to the Ouija board. What you do with the information it reveals is between you - and the Mystifying Oracle. Game includes: Ouija board and plastic message indicator. For 2 players.
