Read the performance manual yesterday. Read it 3 times actually. This is way too good.

Can someone go over one of the routines?

Do the spectators ask a question, and then you shuffle the cards and get an answer?

It looks great, but I am not clear on what happens.

Wow, thank you all very much. I’m excited for everyone to receive it; I think you’ll all be surprised by the sheer size and weight of it.

Jerry,

I’d rather avoid discussing it publicly for various reasons, but feel free to email me at bobby@darkartifice.com and I’d be happy to give you a more detailed rundown of the routine.

The same goes for anyone else.

Thanks again,

Bobby

I created a thread "down below" in the Crypt, for any of us that might want to share thoughts and ideas on message revelations and the like.

Having this in my hands now, it exceeds my (already high) expectations!

I had a bit of worry that it'd be heavily aged and would stick out like a sore thumb with my copy of Ouija from the period (which is pristine), and was very relieved with the state it was in when it arrived. It matches with my Ouija perfectly. Given that, I'm very hesitant to do anything to the outer box at all... but I might bring myself to ding a corner. Maybe. Someday.

After only spending a couple hours intermittently shuffling and spreading the cards, and they've already got what I feel is a perfect look to them. I dare say she's ready for prime time!

One interesting thing I wasn't expecting: I notice the custom-made candle holder has a recess in the bottom. While I'm not inclined to add anything quite as dramatic that would take away from what I feel is the gorgeous simplicity of this effect, one could stick a neodymium magnet in there and glue a piece of round felt to the bottom to cover the recess.

Very pleased with the look of this, the quality of the thing (it's clear that every part of this was meticulously custom made and designed for this specific purpose, which only lends more legitimacy to it), and how utterly "of the times" it appears. Fantastic work Smile

Hey Reese, nice to know there's a fellow spooky across the pond from me !! Check your mailbox, just received mine a day early. The spirits moved quicker than expected !!

So I just enjoyed s l o w l y opening my package & WOW, this thing looks like it was from 1972 !! Aging just perfect, the board amazing to unfold, he inner packaging & card all just spectacularly creepy !!
The box lid sets you up for creep factor 10+, then you remove the lid & ZOWEEEEEE, off the hook !!

Once again Bobby, you've created something with the most in depth detail that you would swear you could have seen on the shelf of a store in 1972. Every nuance of dates & manufactured by's on everything as it would have back then are there ! Money well spent to say the least & recoup of my money will be in the mileage I get in creep factor uses with this ! Sits in my collection nicely with other effects like TKG, flappr f0rtune, OE's Mr D@rks 5sh0t (Bobby was involved with), DDT & carny tarot cards, etc so they look good together in my creep games section I have.

Don't wait too long on this to buy if you can afford it, especially as this 1st batch out will not be the same IF he makes a 2nd batch........

Would Be interesting to have a dummy write up in Creepy Pasta stories like Cody did with his DominusVox....?? would be fun for someone to be able to pull this game up with the back story on the creepy pasta site, extra creep factor realism 😈😜

Thank you again Bobby, SUPER creepily happy !!!!

Just now opened it up. It looks absolutely authentic. I can't imagine anyone seeing it doubting it's authenticity. To us it's a work of Art but to them it's a very weird game. If you ask a group to play it with you they most likely will hesitate a moment before answering. The idea of actually playing the game is scary. It looks that good. Thanks Bobby!

I admit it: there's only two things in this world that I'm truly afraid of. And ghosts is both of them. Some people believe that ghosts aren't sentient beings. That they're an emotion that's bent out of shape stuck in a repeating pattern tied to a place or an object, seeking resolution usually against a percieved wrong. Often through an act of vengeance. That's what I believed. Until last night. Now I know that ghosts are very, very real. Awake with a sentient malevolence...After a few rye whiskeys ( Bad Move. Please don't drink and Seance ) I had the brilliant idea to play the Game legitimately. ( Really bad move ) I legitimately shuffled the cards and legitimately cut the cards at each turn. I played the Game for real. For those who have received this or about to.... I plead with you. Don't do what I did. Don't play the Game for real. Tell yourself it's just a "magic prop". I know you'll be tempted to play the Game for real. Don't. There may be unintended consequences...Don't say I didn't warn you. I just did. Buyer beware!

P.S. Please don't call them ghosts. Or spirits. They don't like that. At all. They have names. I found that out last night to my detriment.

As I printed out the backstory, I added a few things & this was the ending that felt right - Play wise, play safe, but always beware of what you may play with......or, what may play with YOU !!

It fits this very well......
