Can you connect to the other side? Do have ESP? Sixth Sense or a guiding force?
Since the modern revival of Spiritualism by the Fox sisters in 1848, communicating with the dead has been the evening entertainment of many a home parlour across the civilised world. Now we are pleased to bring you a new and fascinating way of bringing those that have past the vale of the living back to you.
This 56 card deck of influential and infamous people (All living and dying between 1850-1945) has been created to enable you to discover their secrets with the aid of a unique seance card back. It’s both a communication letter, word device (like a ouija board) and planchette. This highly detailed and pinpoint accurate design has been created by masters of magical research for your entertainment and paranormal investigating pleasure.
* Your cards will be Sure Slip Playing Cards. These are made from the highest quality, hand made stock and feature a linen like finish to give them the traditional playing card look and feel. As used by Penn & Teller
Best played by candlelight, there are three modes of play.
“The Seance Game”
Players take turns to act as the person from the chosen card and can only communicate through the Seance card back. The first one to detect the name of the spirit gains the card. The first player to gather three correct names wins.
“The Advanced Seance Game”
Using the pads, each player must lay out three cards, the other players take turns to find out as much information as the can within a time limit.
This is not so much a game but a real experiment in to the contacting the dead and truly communicating with the spirits of the Seance deck.
Place one card of your choosing and either don't look at it (to see how accurate your paranormal ability is) or look at it. Place your fingers very gently on the edges of the card back and wait to see if you get an answer to your questions. We have found though test it normally only takes a couple of minutes for it to work.
"This morning I posted on facebook the cover for a new book on Jack the Ripper’s five victims. Played Olly Mc’s new game The Seance, one of the cards I picked was Annie Chapman. Then we all chose a random card and had to guess who the card was using the planchette card. Guess who it was... Annie Chapman!
Coincidence...? Mr O. Brooks
