Simmons OUIJA
J.M. Simmons
Design on wood 1920
What's this? A Nazi Ouija board? Things seem a bit confused with the Mogen David on one side and the swastika on the other. Prior to World War Two, the swastika was a popular good luck symbol appearing on everything from postcards to lucky coins. There was no connection to the Third Reich whatsoever.

Design on wood 1946
The lucky horseshoe replaced the swastika on this post war Simmons Ouija for obvious reasons. Just so there was no mistake, printed on the back of the board in big letters was "Made In USA." Although rarer than their swastika cousins, if Zolar's Occult Catalog is correct, these boards were sold until the early 1960's.

ESP THE OLYMPIA ESP BOARD
Olympia Specialty Company
Design on paper-hardboard 1966
Trouble contacting the Unseen World? Play the special record that comes with this talking board titled appropriately enough "Music To Play E-S-P By." Oh, you need a record player that plays 45s. That won't be a problem, will it?
OUIJA QUEEN
American Novelty Company
Design on cardboard 1940's
This was a pretty, utilitarian design from American Novelty Company. Au Revoir. How many ways can you say good-bye? Be sure to visit our American Novelty Company page for more information.
Queen
Queen OUIJA QUEEN
American Novelty Company
Design on cardboard 1940's
If the brown Ouija Queen was too plain for your tastes, there was always this colorful blue and yellow one. A variant of this board with white across the center was also available.
THE MYSTERIOUS PLANCHETTE
The Planchette Company
Design on hardboard 1944
The poor sitter seems to be getting some very bad news from the Swami on this weird and unusual talking board. If the evil specter in the upper right hand corner didn't keep you from using this board, nothing would.
Mysterious
Yogee YOGEE
Lee Industries
Design on cardboard 1940's
It glows in the dark! Turn out the lights, grab a partner, no candles required. They didn't come any more lurid than this. Absolutely guaranteed to bring two people closer together.
SWAMI
Gift Craft
Design on paper-hardboard 1940's
This is one of Gift Craft's better efforts capitalizing on the mystery and magic of the Far East.
Swami
Mystic MYSTIC
Baron, Rott & Samuels
Design on paper-hardboard 1950's
It was advertised as the mystifying board that sees all, knows all, and tells all. What do you think it would tell you?
OUIJA
William Fuld
Design on wood 1911
Early Fuld Ouijas lacked the face in the full moon (later to become a sun) in the upper left hand corner of the board. The over sized planchette for this board had legs over two inches long.
Ouija
Ouija OUIJA
William Fuld
Design on wood 1925
The copyright date 1919, and the Harford Street, Baltimore address on the back identify this as a 1920's board. Big red letters on the back advertised the name WILLIAM FULD BALTIMORE, MD. He didn't want there to be any mistake about who invented the Ouija.
I-D-O PSY-CHO-I-D-E-O-GRAPH
Theodore H. White
Design on cardboard 1919
Why stick to numbers and letters when you can add sixty other symbols as well? Maybe your Medimestic Indian Guide (see tepee, upper left corner) can tell you. A picture is worth a thousand words. Isn't it?
