The Holy Spirit Board, a new board game marketed as a “Christian” version of the Ouija board, has sparked controversy among clerics.
It is a real game that can be found on sites like Amazon.
It uses the classic planchette system to allow users to communicate directly with Jesus Christ.
The planchette is decorated with Christian symbols like the cross and angels instead of demonic ones.

The game claims to be a one-way ticket straight to heaven that answers all of life’s most important questions.
However, conservative Christians view it as blasphemy, and an exorcist has warned people not to play with it, calling it a “trap from the devil.”
The exorcist advises people who have bought the game to get rid of it, go to confession, and ask for liberation.
Many people see the game as a real threat and have criticized Amazon for allowing it to be sold on their platform.
The game went viral last month after Father Ernesto Caro’s comments were picked up by Christian news media.
The Holy Spirit Board first started gaining attention at the end of last year. Some suspect the motivation of the creators was tongue-in-cheek humor. Nonetheless, the controversy surrounding the game remains.
