When playing with Talking boards there is a few simple rules to follow.
1. Be respectful
2. Set the Mood
3. Create a Protection Circle around not just the board but all present as well. (Salt works great)
4. Plan your questions beforehand
5. Alway say goodbye when done
*** BEWARE ***
If Planchette starts a countdown on the numbers or creates strange repetitive movements such as a figure 8 ..
SAY GOODBYE ..
Spirits have been known to utilize boards as a portal back into our plane of existence.
