Can You Remember All The Rules Of This Ouija Board Without Angering The Spirits?

GOODBYE.

Your best friend finds an old, creepy-looking Ouija board in their parents' attic during a party. They want you and a couple of other party goers to use it. No one has ever used one before, so you must first go over all of the rules.

You only get 20 seconds with the rules before someone anxiously grabs them out of your hands. The rules for using the Ouija board are as follows:

  1. All right, so you need to find somewhere to use the board. One friend suggests the living room. Your response?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    No, you're not supposed to use the board in the house.

    You decide as a group that it would be best to use the board outside, in the backyard.

  2. The board is all set up in the correct place, so everyone places two fingers on the planchette, but several people begin speaking at once. What needs to happen?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    We need to select ONE person to speak.

    And, much to your horror, everyone votes for YOU to be the speaker.

  3. You now have to choose between the questions in the group to ask: "Is anyone there?" "Is this an evil spirit?" or "When will I die?" Which is OKAY to ask?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Is anyone there?"

    Sure, it's creepy AF when the planchette immediately moves to "Yes," but the other two are BIG no-no's.

  4. You've asked the spirit a few other questions and it's answered with creepy accuracy. One of the party goers is drunk and suggests asking a funny, rude question. You:

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Refuse, we're not supposed to taunt the spirits.

    The party goer may be down for possession, but you're not. Refuse to ask the rude question in favor of something less...dick-ish.

  5. The planchette suddenly begins moving in a figure "8" motion. What does this mean?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's time stop using the board, NOW.

    A figure "8" is the sign of an angry, vengeful spirit and you don't need that kind of negativity in your life. It's time to stop using the board immediately.

  6. What do you need to do before closing out the board?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Move the planchette to "GOODBYE."

    It's not JUST polite, it's necessary in order to close out the board and make sure no spirits remain in your friend's backyard (without paying rent).

  7. Everyone else gets up to leave, but your best friend says they want to be alone to use the board solo. What do you do?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    NOPE. Sorry, you can't use the board alone, ever.

    You pack up the board and take your friend by the hand back into her party. That's enough spooks for one night.
