- Never play alone!
- Never let the spirits count down through the numbers or go through the alphabet as they can get out of the board this way.
- If the planchette falls from a Ouija board, a spirit will get loose.
- If the planchette repeatedly makes a figure eight, it means that an evil spirit is in control of the board.
- Never use the Ouija in an ill or weakened condition, as this may lead to possession.
