Following the rules of the Ouija board will help keep you safe from the trickster spirits and demonic entities that may come through the board.
Take a peek inside the Cult of Weird collection at a vintage funeral carriage, a charred artifact from Hell, and a Disney-tinged antique Ouija board.
The Talking Board Historical Society set the new world record for the largest Ouija board with the 9,000-pound OuijaZilla.
OuijaZilla was unveiled in Salem, MA on October 12, 2019 and officially took the crown for the world’s largest Ouija board from the previous record holder, the Grand Midway Hotel.
Weighting in at an estimated 9,000 pounds, OuijaZilla is made of 99 sheets of plywood and measures 3,168 square feet. The planchette is 400 pounds on its own and measures 15.5 feet long and 10 feet at its widest point, but can be effortlessly moved across the board by just one person (or spirit?), Ripley’s reports.
OuijaZilla was handcrafted by Rick “Ormortis” Schreck, a lifelong collector of spirit boards and Vice President of the Talking Board Historical Society.

Schreck started collecting Ouija boards in 1992 and filled his house with them hoping to make it haunted.
So far, the OuijaZilla site notes, it hasn’t worked.
Watch Talking Board Historical Society director Karen A Dahlman talk to Rick and Kate about the Ouija board rules and their talking board collection in this video:
The Talking Board Historical Society will be revealing Ouijazilla this October is Salem, MA.
Rick Ormortis Schreck, the Vice President of the Talking Board Historical Society whose family has been dubbed the “real-life Addams Family,” has been hard at work preparing to crush the current world record holder for the world’s largest Ouija board.
The massive board, which has been named Ouijazilla, was constructed out of wood and hand-painted by Schreck in the classic Ouija style.
“So I finally am able to talk about the Top Secret project that I have been working on since last summer,” Schreck posted on Instagram. “It has been a Hell of a journey and. It ain’t over yet. Stay tuned for sneak peeks at the Monster!”

World’s Largest Ouija Board
The Grand Midway Hotel in Windber, Pennsylvania currently holds the Guinness World Record for the Ouija board they painted on their roof in 2016 along with the accompanying ten-foot planchette on wheels.
I’m thrilled to see what kind of monster Ouija Schreck has created.
Today’s gathering of weird art and morbid oddities for sale.
Hey there, it’s been awhile. Time has not been on my side lately, and it’s all I can do just to push out a monthly newsletter. But a handful of recent discoveries made me realize it was time to dust off the “Featured Oddities” series to showcase some things I know you’ll be dying to adorn your corpse and your crypt with.
Son of the Devil Sideshow Banner
Authentic, vintage sideshow banners are hard to come by, and certainly not affordable for the casual circus freak enthusiast as they can go for thousands of dollars. That’s why I knew this large, high quality reproduction created by Jason Lonon of Death-Ray Design would be hanging on my wall the moment I saw it.
Ouija Blue Ghost T-Shirt
Dubbed the Blue Ghost by William Fuld himself, the mysterious figure that graced the boxes of his iconic Ouija board from 1941-1972 is now on a t-shirt for the first time from the Talking Board Historical Society.
Reindeer Horn Incense Burner
From my favorite purveyor of pagan art and household goods, this handcrafted incense burner or candle holder is made from genuine reindeer horn, copper wire, and a copper bowl.
