Introduced in 1886, as a parlor game. The Associated Press reported on a new phenomenon, the “talking board”. Charles Kennard of Baltimore, Maryland acted on it, and in 1890, he pulled together a group who formed the Kennard Novelty Company. Sitting around the table, they asked the board what they should call it; the name “Ouija” came through and, when they asked what that meant, the board replied, “Good luck.”
By 1892, the Kennard Novelty Company had factories in Baltimore, New York, Chicago and London More than 120 years later, this game still has place in American culture. Contains Sturdy wood Ouija Board featuring original graphics and plastic message indicator.
