  • Probably fake, more prone to the power of suggestion from everyone touching it, but still, I don't mess with them, just in case I've invited something unfriendly to communicate with me.

  • For the record, I have one, I use one and I will never stop my kids from using one. I find them to be quite entertaining and some harmless fun. I don't use them as a serious form of divination though, the "air ways" are too broad for that... But that doesn't make them harmful or dangerous in any way.

  • I used one once. I believed it, and it scared me. I'll never use one again.

  • I don't know. I have no problem with them. I'm not sure if I actually believe that they can talk to spirits, but I don't see any harm in them. I have one, and my 21 month old son plays with it. Obviously, he doesn't know what it is, but he loves banging the little pointer thing of it on the board, and it's very pretty, nicely decorated, so he loves just to look at it.

  • I think they are scary. I played one with a friend at 15. We asked when we would get married and to who. It said 21 and the same name of DH. Who I later met in another state.

  • Hahahahahahaha...we had one all the time I was growing up. And I bought my son one a couple years ago. They are in no way, shape or form evil. is an illusion of suggestion. And nothing more.
