|Here's the original box to my favorite Parker Brothers board...the Deluxe
Wooden Edition. Parker Brothers made these for a very short time in the
late sixties. They represented a great time in Ouija history as far as quality
of materials goes. If only they hadn't stopped production. I can tell some
hippie owned this board before me...the inside of the box has "Peace &
Love" scribbled about a hundred times...
|This box goes to the great Genii Board from the late 1960s. This particular
box was shipped to the owner from the factory so I'm guessing it was a
mail-order board. (The original owner's name and address were scribbled
out on the back.) Amazingly, the board came with anactual paper
instruction book...a rarity for talking boards.
|This was Milton Bradley's stab at a game based on the paranormal. In my
opinion, this doesn't actually count as a channeling board since it uses a
pendulum instead of a planchette. However, because of the nature of the
game, I couldn't resist listing it here. This game is from 1966...just about
when Parker Brothers was buying the Ouija Board.
|Here's another "non-Ouija" board box,
only this time it's made by Parker Brothers.
It was another attempt to appeal to the
metaphysical side of society. It was
centered around a divining rod instead of a
planchette. The box is made taller than it is
wide which is very rare for pretty much any
board game...not to mention Ouija boards.
