In 1890, the board was invented and first made for a way to communicate with supernatural spirits. The Ouija, a talking board, has printed letters and numbers that uses a sliding pointer to spell out messages by the spirits. Remember, always say goodbye before you stop using the Ouija board. The board that would later become the “Ouija Board” was first born in 1886 in Chestertown, Maryland, and given a name Ouija in 1890 in Baltimore, Maryland, where it was first made. Newspapers reported about the Ouija board and said its strange way of communicating with spirits can predict natural disasters, solve mysteries, and see if crimes may happen.
