Come to The Satanic Temple on Oct 7th and experience the dark history of the Ouija board. You’ll see one of the largest talking board exhibits ever to be displayed to the public. Featuring more than 100 pieces from antique boards and planchettes to photographs, advertisements, and ephemera all telling the story of talking boards from 1890 to the present day.

The Witch City in October sets the standard for things spooky and macabre. Known for its dark past and connection to the occult, most know of its Witch trials history but not it’s Witch Board or Ouija history. Witch Boards, Talking Boards, or Devil Boards as they are also known were made in Salem from 1966-1991. In that time they became one of America’s most popular games. At one point outselling Monopoly, the Ouija Board is often a person’s first experience with the occult and available at any toy store. But is it a game? Can you really talk to the dead? «It's only a game… Isn't it?»

Join us on Oct 7th at 7pm for an opening reception and lecture lead by Talking Board Historical Society directors John Kozik, Calvin Von Crush and Robert Murch. They will discuss;
The dark history of the Ouija board from its birth as a device to talk to the dead
Its association with evil, murder, and mystery
How it was named and first shown to work to get its patent
How it became known as a tool of the Devil
