Medium | Planchette | Ouija-Board


"An individual who can communicate with spirits. Medium could be a person or as well as coud be an object such as Ouija Board."


"A Planchette board is a small, usually heart-shaped flat piece of wood equipped with two wheeled castors and a pencil-holding aperture, used to facilitate automatic writing. The use of planchettes to produce mysterious written messages gave rise to the belief that the devices foster communication with spirits as a form of a certain person's mediumship."


"The Ouija board also known as a Spirit board or Talking board, is actually a modern type of planchette without any certain person's mediumship; here, the midium is the Ouija Board itself. It's a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0–9, the words 'yes', 'no', 'hello' (occasionally), and 'goodbye', along with various symbols and graphics. It uses a small heart-shaped piece of wood or plastic called a planchette. Participants place their fingers on the planchette, and it is moved about the board to spell out words. "Ouija" is a trademark of Hasbro, Inc., but is often used generically to refer to any talking board. According to Hasbro, players take turns asking questions and then "wait to see what the planchette spells out" for them."
