The Ouija board continues to be a popular means of entertainment for a wide variety of people: paranormal thrill-seekers, adventurous adolescents, temperamental teens, tipsy party guests, and even curious skeptics. Most of the time, those who dabble with the Ouija experience nothing out of the ordinary. But many times that's not the case. And many times that extraordinary experience isn't just strange, but downright awful.
Ouija Board Nightmares takes a look at some of those terrifying experiences, which range from nightmarish manifestations to outright physical assaults. The author's intention is to inform and engage, but primarily to warn. While the Ouija board may be marketed as a harmless game, it is indeed neither. If the accounts in this book don't convince you of that, then nothing will.

This book is a bunch of very short "true" stories about Quija board incidents. There are some that are scary, and some that are not so scary. Pretty much every story ends with "and they swore they would never touch a board again".
This book is filled with factual and useful information. Each example consists of a few paragraphs which are very comprehensive and leave no time for a person to lose interest. These examples are divided into chapters which grow in intensity as the book progresses. Remember, the entire book is just about 2 hours in length and the author does a good job of only using one chapter for introduction and the rest for actual stories and experiences of people using the boards and their results. It is not written with the same attention to detail as The Demonologist; it is more of a collection of short stories. I have only two complaints regarding the listening experience. First, the author seemed to end almost each story with some version of “they will never do it again.” That was tiresome after about the first ten stories. The second is the narrator. I dislike criticizing voiceover artists because I know, from experience; it is not an easy job. This guy just sounded rather plastic. That being said, the information in the book is well-researched, knowledgeable, and is something many teenagers, not to mention adults, would do well to read.
Loved it, definite A+ book. Awesome stories that came forth about the Ouija Board. After listening to this it's highly recommended that you stay away from these sorts of things. At least I will...
Awesome!!!! Heed the warning, do not mess with the Ouija board, ever!!! There is more than enough evil in this world, for the love of God, do not invite more!!!
I would recommend this to a friend, or anyone, looking for an interesting collection of urban legends/anecdotes involving the paranormal and Ouija Boards. The book is a very quick read which can be listened to in a single sitting.
The book was not quite what I expected. I'm not sure how reliable these "true tales" actually are, however, it was an enjoyable book, and I would consider getting another in the series.
Michael E. Smith's performance was adequate. It wasn't the best performance, but it certainly wasn't the worst either.
Ouija Board Nightmares: A Collection of Urban Legends
each story is about 5minutes long and read Mir like a campfire ghost story than an actual account. it is written like a bad scare tactic. the narrator is way too up beat for the subject matter and is more worried about saying every word right, than sounding like a person. would be perfect for an 8 year old.
