Spirit Communication

Zozo: A Terrifying Ouija Board Phenomenon

In every reported encounter with the entity known as Zozo, there is a single common thread: darkness. To communicate with Zozo via a Ouija board is said to invite an unrelenting demonic force into your life.

But what is Zozo, and why has it terrorized thousands of people around the world? This, I’m afraid, is not an easy question to answer.

The first reported appearance of this entity occurred in 1816, when a young girl in Picardy, France fell victim to a severe demonic possession (this according to the Dictionnaire Infernal, published in 1818 by Jacques Collin de Plancy). She became the vessel for a number of demons, one of which was our mysterious Zozo.

Later, when Ouija boards entered popular culture in the 20th Century, stories of Zozo began to rise, with numerous tales told of the Ouija spirit, the one who devours souls and changes lives.

A Planchette of Stories

Zozo is a complicated entity, or so it would seem. In most stories, it’s initially friendly, sometimes using a different name. Occasionally, it will appear in the middle of a conversation with another spirit and interrupt the communication.

The planchette performs strange figure eights or “inverted Zs,” and answers become repetitive. But it does not take long for an encounter with Zozo to turn frighteningly negative.

Omens of the Demon

There is seemingly no end to the number of bizarre stories shared online about Zozo. They even tend to have certain elements in common, as mentioned above.

For example, an encounter with Zozo while using a Ouija board usually involves one of the following events (though this list is not exhaustive):

  • the planchette draws figure 8s or Zs on the board
  • the planchette repetitively spells out Z-O-Z-O, Z-A-Z-A, or even M-A-M-A, moving in a rapid left-to-right or right-to-left fashion (it’s unclear what relation “MAMA” may have to the Zozo demon)
  • a conversation with one spirit is interrupted by another entity, which becomes increasingly antagonistic
  • the entity often claims to be a deceased loved one

It’s difficult to tell which stories about Zozo are authentic and which are nothing more than urban legends. Some tell of murders and suicides, while others involve possession, physical ailments, abuse, curses, and other phenomena commonly associated with demonic forces.

Some have even claimed that Zozo attached to them or their family, like a parasitic demon.

The following are a handful of stories about Zozo that have appeared throughout the Internet. Perhaps they’ll give you a better idea of what it’s like to summon the ouija demon into your life. Follow their links to read more.

“We called him Oz.”

In 2012, a user at Ghost-Space.com (now inaccessible, but may be found here) shared the story of a confrontation with a suspicious Ouija spirit. Her friend had been asking the spirit board questions about her recently-deceased father, which it answered correctly.

Then, the board unexpectedly turned its attention to her mother.

Again, the board seemed to have a supernatural knowledge of their parents. “We were both in tears,” she wrote. Then, the active spirit seemed to “switch” again. They asked who it was, this time, and the reply was haunting: “The pointer went O Z O Z O Z O Z O. We called him Oz. We asked him to blow out a candle to prove himself and before we completed the sentence the candle was out.”

The strange spirit also knew the exact time, when asked. However, it would later reveal a haunting truth – he had been there the whole time, posing as her friend’s father and her mother, answering questions correctly by reading their minds.

“…that’s how he gave us the answers to our questions, he was in our heads.”

The two of them immediately put the Ouija board away when the spirit began to curse. They wanted nothing more to do with this “Oz.” Unfortunately, when they returned to it a few weeks later, thinking the worst had passed, they again met Oz. “He was nasty, cursing at us, saying dark things,” she remembered. From then on, they seemed to experience nothing but bad luck.

It wasn’t until they finally researched their plight on the Internet that they learned of the infamous Ouija demon. Was “Oz” actually the malevolent Zozo?

Tales Of Possession

Another Internet-goer, this one found while perusing the always-reliable Yahoo Answers, shared her own experience with the mischievous demon. She had been using a Ouija board with a friend one cold Saturday evening, under the glow of red candlelight, when the spirit they were talking to said it was called Zozo. At that exact moment, her friend began to complain of a terrible headache.

Things would only get worse from there.

“That night, she slept-walked…into my sister’s room,” she said. Her friend then “started talking some gibberish, screamed ‘RED!’ and…then left the room and could not be found in the house for a good half hour.” She had seemingly disappeared.

They searched and searched for her. Every room of the house. When the poster finally gave up and checked her own room one last time, mysteriously, her friend was there. Had Zozo been playing a terrible trick, or worse – had he possessed this person?

Losing Control

A tale at Your Ghost Stories, published in 2012, shares yet another haunting experience. The poster, named April, had read stories about Zozo, herself, but didn’t believe them.

This, as you’ll see, would change.

She’d recently moved in with her sister, and to celebrate they’d had a few friends over. After a while, they decided to have some fun with a Ouija board, to ask it some questions about the afterlife and perhaps learn about the future. Nothing had ever gone wrong before. It was just a game.

They placed the board on the table, and placed their hands on the planchette. “Is there anyone there?” April asked. The board replied Yes. When they asked it to reveal its name, the planchette glided over to the Z, then the O. Just as we’ve seen before, ack and forth, Z O Z O Z O Z O. They asked the spirit what it wanted.

It replied, “Her.”

When they asked what it meant by that, it spelled out the name of one of her friends – “I was freaked,” recalled April – then returned to spelling its own name. Z O Z O. One of her other friends then became annoyed by the repetitive answers, and decided to provoke the spirit by cursing at it. “That’s when things got bad,” April said.

The planchette “began feeling hot” under their fingers. The spirit then began to spell out another word. M A M A. They felt a presence in the room. The air was heavy. Something was wrong. “I didn’t feel like myself,” April recalled, “I felt as if something was inside me.”

She felt nothing but hatred and anger, and began laughing and crying at the same time. It was at that moment they decided to end the Ouija session, though the strange feelings seemed to linger on.

Opening Doors

A man named Darren from Tulsa, Oklahoma shared his story on March 24, 2009 at the website True Ghost Tales. He’d long been fascinated with the occult, particularly Ouija boards, and had experienced many strange phenomena. He was also shocked, he said, “by how many times ZOZO showed up even in many different states and many different Ouija boards.”

Zozo, it would seem, can be found everywhere.

Darren recalled one particular encounter with Zozo as being “extremely evil.” He had entered his bathroom only to find his one-year-old daughter nearly drowned. She’d been left alone briefly in the tub by her mother, and “somehow the water got turned on and was overflowing.” No one had physically touched the faucet.

The following day, she was “hospitalized for some weird internal infection” and put into isolation. “We almost lost her,” recalled Darren, “And that was when I began to suspect a demonic attack.” Could Darren’s constant encounters with the demon Zozo have put his daughter’s life in danger? Or is using the Ouija board alone, a portal to doors that should remain unopened, enough to bring about such a terrible fate?

Zozo’s Deception

This final excerpt appears on the blog of paranormal researcher Darren Evans — yes, the very same Darren from the above story — who has spent several years researching the Zozo phenomenon after his own horrifying experience. If you’d like to read more Zozo experiences, I’d recommend giving it a look.

“There was a spirit that claimed to be that of a little boy. We also talked to a few other spirits on the board until one time this spirit came across and said his name Oz. I figured initials because I don’t recall any spirits giving there names, just initials.

Anyway, he was no fun and just plain mean. Everytime we would try to talk to one of the other friendly spirits, Oz always came back like he was much stronger than the others. When you would ask a question and he got angry, the eye would move frantically in a figure 8. He was just mean. Well, one night we got pretty trashed and asked some real mean things and acted mean back. It was funny at first, but it got serious in a hurry.

We started arguing with one another because some were getting spooked. We then came to our senses and said, “let’s get rid of this darn thing. We threw it away and nothing strange happened afterwards. Not sure I beleive in them or if they really even work. But it was a freaky experience. Although I talked a lot of smack that night, I was sort of fearful for a few days. I can’t remember to this day what Oz said, heck its been 20yrs ago. But, it wasn’t good at all!”

The Demonic Trickery Of Zozo

Is Zozo a demon? Well, I suppose your first question would be, “Is Zozo even real?” But for now I’d rather concentrate on the stories as told and leave the skepticism to others.

At any rate, not everyone believes Zozo is a demon.

Instead, there is a theory that Zozo is in fact nothing more than an evil spirit pretending to be a demon. After all, there’s no reason to believe that ghosts and other strange entities must tell the truth. They don’t have to play by any rules.

And that is a curious thing — in most communications with Zozo, the planchette on the Ouija board makes a repetitive movement through the alphabet, from Z to O and back again, over and over, as shared in the experience quoted above. But this could be a problem for those using the Ouija board.

You see, it is said that you shouldn’t go backwards in the alphabet (or in the numbers) on a Ouija board. Why? Because doing so is a method that demons and evil spirits use to open portals into our world and break through from the other side. Could the name ‘Zozo’ actually be a trick?

Zozo in Popular Media

Like Annabelle the Doll and other demons usually known for possession, in recent years Zozo has entered into popular culture. There’s even been at least one movie dedicated to the Ouija demon.

Taking inspiration from the strange stories of Zozo, a horror film titled I Am Zozo was released in 2012. The film was shot entirely on Super 8, but unfortunately its reception, according to Wikipedia, was “overwhelmingly negative.”

The film was, as you’d expect, about the terrifying events that follow after a group of friends use a Ouija board on Halloween.

Movies aside, while reading about Zozo I couldn’t help but think of a final possibility: Could Zozo be a tulpa, a shared experience? Like the Philip Experiment on a much grander scale, or the countless stories (and real life delusions) shared about the Slender Man, Zozo could be our own creation.

But does that make it any less real?

So, I ask: Have you ever used a Ouija board? Ever encountered the entity known as Zozo? I’ve personally never used one; I have an old keychain Ouija board that I doubt would perform particularly well as a conduit for spirits, much less a demon.

I’m not sure I believe. Do you?

  1. I looked for the stories on the internet, so scary! I played with the ouija board once, fortunately I did not encounter with this “being”, but something strange did happened. The “spirit” or whatever we talked said its name while being human was Christian, I was working on a library at that time and a few weeks later a boy went to look for me, said was an old friend of mine and his name was Christian, I wasn’t there at the moment, so he just said he would come back later. Yeah I never met any person named Christian and less friend of mine; it was really, really weird. Thankfully that was it and I never played again.

  2. Once about a million years ago I was using the Ouija board with two friends. We were in Deb’s bedroom, sitting on the floor around the board and the two candles we were using for light. As we were getting settled in to begin the session, we could see our shadows, looming large on the wall.

    When we were ready, my friend Kathy started with the usual, “Is anyone here?” Nothing happened for maybe a minute or two, and then the planchette began moving in small circles in the center of the board. And that was all; nothing else happened. Starting to get bored, I shifted a little and looked back over at the wall–at just the same moment when Deb, her voice shaking, said very softly, “You guys, look at the wall.”

    There were four shadows on the wall.

    We ended the session as fast as we could and then hauled ass. I’ve used a board a few times since then and though nothing spooky happened, I’ve never felt right about it. Guess I’ll be letting other people deal with Zozo.

  3. I have been researching Zozo for a few years now and one of my more frustrating inquiries is information about the possession of 1816 in Picardy France that is always vaguely referenced in pages such as this. I need more information about what transpired but unfortunately I do not speak french so the Dictionnaire Infernal is useless to me and searching for a translation has been fruitless. If anyone out there has information about the possession please, I implore you to contact me at cpfisher1128@gmail.com. I understand that the girl is never mentioned by name and that she was possessed by multiple spirits such as Zozo, Zaza, and Mama but no other information seems to be available. Please, I desperately need more information so I can move forward with my project.

  4. This is a true story. Many years ago my girlfriend and I were playing with a Ouija board. I remembered a story my sister had told years before about using a Ouija and asking the spirit about itself and how it told her and her friend that it was the spirit of a murder victim from the 1800’s, how he died, and stuff like that. So, I decided to ask this spirit for information about itself. I asked questions like “what is your name?”, “where did you live?”, “when did you live?”, “when did you die?”. Each time the planchette moved to “No”. So, I asked “were you a living person?”. Again, the answer was “No”.

    I started thinking that maybe it was a spirit that never had a corporal existence but was really getting frustrated with this thing not saying anything other than “no”. I decided to ask it a question that should result in an affirmative response. I asked “Did you come from God?”. Again, “No”. So I asked, “Who did you come from?”. Finally, it started spelling something out. The planchette moved to different letters but it was all jibberish, just a few different letters not spelling out any real words. I told it that I did not understand, to please tell me something that I could understand.

    That was when I almost **** myself. It went to the numbers. First “6”. Then around in a circle and back to “6”. Then in a circle and as it headed back to “6” again, I threw the board down to the floor. My girlfriend was like “What’s the matter? Why did you do that?”. I quickly put everything back in the box and stuck it back into the closet. I never played with it again.

    I told a coworker what had happened and he told me that Ouijas were bad news, that they opened doors to things that were no good. That evening I threw it out into the dumpster.

    Later, I realized that the jibberish that was being spelled was “DCLXVI”, Roman numerals for 666.

      1. No, I don’t think so. That was so long ago but I think I would remember if anything more happened. At some point soon after that incident, we decided to throw the board into the dumpster. We later married, had kids, went to church, and lived normal lives.

    1. This is Jeffrey have a question, did you had this skeptical that ouija is made of toy right, so the question is did you tried it first time & it has worked instantly or how long did you waited? I tried everything it wasnt working for me i think zozo or any spirits are afraid of me. What does it means when the planchette was not moving it and is it because im too powerful to face their fearful damn by my power of the one evil eye scared em away? There’s something mystery about me my spirit are inhuman far dangerously that make any of them not come step forwards.

      1. Its possible you have some sort of guardian spirit watching you..keeping them away

      2. You need to have at least two people touching the planchette at all times and open the connections, like the way you have to say ‘goodbye’ to close it off.

  5. My research continues. With the success of Hasbos Ouija film, google is reporting a huge increase in searches this holiday season. I predicted years ago that when this film was released a new spirit wave would send people in droves looking to have their own experience.

    As a self proclaimed Zozologist, these trends and a large influx of Zozo encounters, I have launched a new website at ZozoDemon.com. This new site will feature new startling information and research into what has become known worldwide as The Zozo Phenomena. I will also be speaking of the dangers of all places the OuijaCon event in Baltimore Maryland. Excellent article, thanks for sharing!

  6. I’ve only used a Oijia board once and it was home made during a sleep over when I was a teenager. We used it outside in the yard at my house. We talked a lot with it but ended our session very abruptly, as we were seemingly surrounded by what seriously sounded like a whole pack of invisible coyotes…in the middle of town. I’ve had a lot of experiences I can’t explain away easily and most of them took place in that same house. Most after that. I don’t know if we opened up something or what but I definately had something happen to me that I can’t just shrug off.

  7. Me and zozo are friends he likes me and I like him and we communicate nearly every time I use a ouija, while reading this and after watching one of the attached videos, he began moving my screen up and down zozo is real and should be respected he is real

    1. I reallyy hope you figure out quick that this is unhealthy behavior nd no one should support it. Get rid of Zozo. Im not trolling here ppl. I feel as though behavior like this nd thinking a possible demon is good isn’t stable. Thank you for sharing this nd i dont want to come off as belittling you or your story but this is dangerous nd upsetting to me.

    2. Ive supposedly talk to zozo many time and ive never had a bad incounters with him. He seems to just be a neutral spirit. Ive researched a lot about him and ive never seen the “bad” side of him. If anything i think he likes pranking people. But that might just be me…. cool stories though

  8. My friend and i were messing around one night with a home made ouijia, her and i shared the same name and that night we heard a males voice calling our name from outside. No one was there, later that night my friend told me she heard someone whispering baby over and over again. I left the house the next day only to get a call that night telling me she had been found hung, police thought murder but after months of investigations it was ruled a suicide. Since them ive experienced so many things from house to house. After reading into things a lil more i really believe we contacted something evil my children and i have both heard the names zozo abd mama. Currently still seeking answers to rid myself of this.

  9. Lol I have burned ouija boards, urinated on them, burned the letters zozo into them, and done every other thing you can think of and nothing. I have debunked 3 of my friends who claimed ouija boards experiences using a simple method that works 100% of the time. Try this the next time anyone tries to tell a fake story like the ones above. Go over to witness their “event”. When they are about to start blind fold the people using the board and then without them knowing turn the board 180 degrees. Every time I’ve done this magically the “demons” don’t show up or forget how to spell.

    1. The only reason why it wasn’t working for you was because you don’t believe and when you performed each of those…acts, you were just trying to prove your skeptical nature wrong. In the end of it all, if you have something pushing away the spirits, they won’t come to you, which overall is a good thing. It’s not fun experiencing any of those things that people have mentioned above. I personally have never used an Oujia board and have no desire to because I attract a good amount of feelings already by being an empath but I know for a fact that if you open the portal of an Ouija Board (which will be opened once it starts MOVING), then all of those things that you did to the Ouija board would come right back to you. What happened to your friends may be lies, but the Ouija Board is not one at all and if opened, should be handled properly, if not, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life. To be honest, you’re lucky, you can be skeptical and have those things pushed away from you. I wish I could be that way but I literally have no choice because it’s a part of me and if I do ignore it, I usually wind up in the hospital or become serverly depressed. So really, consider yourself lucky, especially since it wasn’t open and you didn’t do all those things when it was.

  10. One time I was summoned by a Ouija board at this party. There were 4 kids sitting around the Ouija board. They asked me questions and I told them to funk off since I was tired and their party was lame. They were asking me who I was and to mess with them some more I told them I was their dead grandma. LOL it was hilarious to see the look on their faces. Then they got irritating and I moved the triangle to Z then O and repeated. Told them my name was ZOZO and blew their candle out and bounced. I love scaring people because they’re so stupid.

  11. I watched Ghost Adventures last night and I sat straight up in bed when they talked about a demon named Zozo. It was about 30 years ago when this happened to me. A friend of mine and myself were using a Ouija board and we seemed to have picked up a child spirit. He said he was 8 years old and was from Boston. He had played with matches and started his family house on fire when he died. After we started talking for quite a while all of a sudden it started spelling out ouch. ahahah. ouch. help me. we asked if there was someone there with him and then spelled out zozozozozozo..we asked if it was demonic and it said yes. We were done right then and there and never touched it again. I was about 17 at the time and I am almost 50. I couldn’t believe it when that name came up on that tv show. We were so certain we had contacted something truly evil. We even went to the library to see if we could find anything with that name. All we came up with was Zoso an ancient sun god I believe it was. Anyhow Don’t mess with this!! I TRULY believe its evil at its core! I am so creeped out right now!

    1. Omg i love ghost adventures! where can i get a ouija board in canada!?!?!?
      email me, im kaylielc@live.com

      1. Dont do it buddy, I may not know you, but I just warn you.
        Cant you see its dangerous. Pray to your God.
        God Bless you.

      2. Please don’t use the Ouija board. They are demons NOT people that had died. They are demons that come from hell and they hate humans. They want us to go to hell with them. They are not your friends or someone to talk to. On Ghost Adventures, in one of the places that they had went to, there was an apparition of what looked like a young girl that would frequently appear. One of the 3 main guys actually even said that when you see something that looks innocent like a young girl, it is often just a demon pretending to be a girl. You can’t trust them at all. They are of Satan. Lying is their native tongue. Using the board would result in nothing but bad for you. You could literally become possessed, end up having demon shadow people in your house knocking things over and even end up physically harmed like some people that have shared their stories here. Please STOP AND THINK — Why would you want to leave yourself open to the very real likely hood that you could have most of these things happen? Do you think that it is a coincidence that like 80% of the people that told their story here actually ended up throwing away the Ouija board away? Please don’t learn the hard way. This is NOT a game.

  12. Ive been playing with the ouija board consistenty over the past 13 years now. Ive interacted with many ghosts and old relatives over the years with zero problems. In fact warnings and predictions have always came true.

    After reading this i just realized that months ago i was talking to the board a lot. It would always say zoo, that something would happen at the zoo or just zoo randomly – many times. Ive never even heard of zozo before now. So this is good insight to know about in the future.

  13. me my cousin my daughters mom and sister all have contacted zaza back in 1999 way before youtube and the stories started to spread across the internet the last couple of years. The first time it would also say ‘mama’ and I was shocked on a episode of coast to coast this guy was researching zaza/zozo and he said also will sometimes say its name is mama.stay away from Ouija boards esp if you get ahold of zaza, bad **** will start to happen no joke

  14. I played with a Ouija board on Halloween last year, but for some reason every time me and my friends would contact a being through the board it would always tell us it was Zozo. One time the spirit claimed to be my friend’s dead aunt, and then it began to claim it was in hell with Zozo. After we played with it me and my friends all felt sick and uneasy for days, and one of my friends, (the one that was supposedly speaking to her aunt) had scratches all up her arms when she woke up the next day. Needless to say, I am never playing with a Ouija board again.

  15. My grandfather recently died. I have used a ouija board a total of 8 times now 4 of those times I’ve contacted a spirit. I used one the day he died, the day of his funeral and Saturday. I used it with my friend and we contacted my “grandfather”. I asked it a few questions and it answered correctly, until my friend eventually got frightened and felt as if she was in a trance which I did too so we said good bye and threw away the board. I woke up the next morning early and felt a horrible need to play again so I printed out another board and sat there staring at it until my friend woke up. I told my friend my urge and she refused to play she was too creeped out and said I could do it on my own and nothing happened. That night I did it again but this time it answered. Once again pretending to be my grandfather I asked it a few questions only my family would know about him and it answered correctly. The whole time I felt as if in a trance and I felt like I was doing it because everytime I thought something it would say it on the board. I was happy and confused I thought it was my grandfather. It gave me many messages to my dad, my little cousin (who it said talked to dead people) and my aunt. It told my dad sorry cause they apparently got in a argument before he died, it said to my little cousin “dobon” and to my aunt that her speech at his funeral was great. I told him to answer when we spoke again and that I would deliver the messages. Immediately that night I felt terrified, I didn’t feel protected by my grandfather I felt stalked. I felt this the whole week then on Wednesday I asked my dad about the argument and told him what happened. He denied it completely, and thought it was something bad that I talked to. After this conversation I knew I had to play it again to tell this thing to stop messing with me. Today I contacted it again as it pretended to be him again. I asked it to say something only me and him knew and it said his wife ran away from the nut house. I said no that never happened then said. It needed to stop messing with me, I only wish to talk to my grandfather, I’m stronger than it thinks and I won’t let anything happen to me or my family. I then asked if I made myself clear it said yes. I took a minute and said good and asked who it was again. This time it used my grandfathers full name. So I saw something orange and crumbly on my floor and asked what it was and it said “die”. Then I said who is this it said zozo. I was terrified I already knew of this spirit and it was exactly what I was afraid of. I asked it why it would say that and it said “I am angry”. I asked what it was angry about and it said my grandfathers first name. They then began switching back in forth between my grandfather and zozo. Eventually my grandfather won and told me “I’m sorry”, “I shouldn’t play anymore”, “run”, and that he’d protect me. I then pushed it to goodbye and threw the board away. I’m scared, terrified, but I won’t go down without a fight.

  16. A couple of friends and I played with a Ouija board when we were in high school. It moved all over the place and scared all of us. None of us ever touched one again.

  17. If you encounter ZOZO ignore him don’t let him have power at all. if you have any questions please comment below

  20. I played Ouija last night at a basketball tournament. We made our own board but had the orignal piece that you put your hands on. We hoped to talk to one of my friends friend (jake) who recently passed away that week in a car accident. I didn’t want to join in on the actual game so I sat in our tent and watched. They started the game and asked if anyone was there, at first we got no answer, we asked a second time, still no answer, and then the third time, the piece moved towards yes. I instantly got freaked out but was highly interested at that point. My friends asked who was there. And it spelt out Jake. We asked to see how he passed away to make sure it was him. The board spelt out “car” quickly things got weird and started spelling out random letters that didn’t form any words. Again, we asked if it was jake but the board piece moved to no. We asked if it was jake the whole time, and it went back to no. So finally we asked who it really was. Slowly the board piece moved to Z slowly, and then O, back and forth but each time going faster. I told my friends to look away from the board to see if it was them but sure enough it kept going back and forth. We quickly said goodbye and the piece slid towards goodbye. Completely freaked out I got out of that tent, the whole thing just felt dark. My friends about a half an hour later decided to try again, but each time getting Zozo. When my friend Maci decided not to join in the game my other two friends successfully talked to jake. The board piece didn’t move fast and was very weak and moved the piece itself to goodbye after we asked a few questions. My two friends communicated with Macis Aunt and asked if it was okay for Maci to join in. The piece moved to yes. Each time she would join in Zozo would take over the game . We asked if it was drawn to Maci and the piece moved to yes. We asked why and it spelt out kill. We tried many times but each time Maci would join in zozo would come back again. We have no clue why it was only Maci . We ripped up the board after we were done playing and threw it away. I have no clue why it was only Maci. But it was definitely some creepy stuff.

  21. My brother and I tried it and met a 2 year old girl she was fun. She said she lived in my closet and I didn’t care. We asked her what her fav color was she said brown, because she had a friend with a cat that was brown. I told her i could put one of my brown stuffed dogs in my closet for her she said yeah. I told her we would leave and be back. we said good bye and got stuffed animal and put it in closet. At one time she asked us how life was REAL life. I felt bad for her, knowing she is dead. I asked her if she wanted to tell us anything. She said ZoZo was coming, I knew who ZoZo is and got a little freaked. I asked if she was messing/teasing she said no, I asked her is she was serious she said yes I asked her if we should say good bye Now! She said yes very quickly so i did. I hope i wasnt talking to ZoZo the whole time!

    1. I don’t think you were talking to ZoZo, because from what I’ve read and watched ZoZo dosen’t like when people leave.

  22. I had a frightening experience playing with an Ouija board as a child. I was about 9 years old when this experience occurred. Me and some neighborhood friends were having a nice time playing with the Ouija on the front lawn. We were all asking silly questions about neighborhood boys and crushes and clearly pushing the planchette ourselves. Everything was very light-hearted and fun at this point. Then, I decided to ask the Ouija a question I knew none of my friends knew the answer to. I asked ” what is my grandpa’s name?” The planchette spelled out S-A-L. To my horror, the board was correct , my grandpa’s name is Sal. I was clearly alarmed and interrogated my friends. Everyone swore up and down that they weren’t pushing the planchette. I then told my playmates that the answer was correct and that my grandpa had died two years earlier. We all started crying and ran home to our mothers. The Ouija was thrown out after that. It isn’t a toy at all. I don’t know why it is marketed as such.

  23. One night several years ago my brother, me, and one or to other members of our family used a ouija board, and me and my brother asked for our mother. Something came through,claiming to be her, and accurately answering several questions. Then I got an intense feeling in the back of my head, and the planchette moved, spelling out “he’s coming, behind the field” and then it’s spelled out zoo. We immedietly burned the plastic cover on the planchette, and later we went to bed. That night I woke up late, and I heard my brother say in his sleep : “help me” and “death”. I heard a thump outside the door, I stayed awake until I passed out. In the present, I have recently been asked about small scratches on my back, seem to just be scanning up. I am never able to explain them, and never have done anything recently to acquire them. I have also seen things In the night, I moved into the house, and room we played the ouija board in, and I heard the thump 2 nights ago

  24. so today was my first time using the board and i sat in my room and prepared myself for it, i was surprised to get a quick response. the pointer was moving really fast and when i asked who i was speaking to it started to spell out zoo but fortunately i stopped it half way through because ive heard that when a spirit moves the pointer back and farth across the board its opening up a gateway, anyways, i was asking the usual, how old are you etc.. then i asked zoo why he chose to come to me and he replied that he liked my soul and that i am very pretty. as soon as the pointer had started moving i felt this aching pain in all my joints and so i asked zoo where he was, his was reply was interesting yet confusing, his reply was yes..?

    i wondered what this meant but didnt go into it much, i then asked what my siblings were doing in the next room and got the response “loom” so i raced into the lounge to find my sisters sitting on the couch with loom bands… ive attemped the board a second time and strangely got a reply from zoo again.. to be honest i have no idea what to think..

    1. Hi Angel, please don’t continue to use the Ouija board to talk to “him”. You are talking to a demon that comes from hell. Demons HATE humans. He is not your friend or someone that you should talk to. Please stop before its too late. I have heard from someone that had quite a bit of experience with Ouija boards, that you can literally become possessed, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU USE IT YOURSELF, because a demon can come into your body. (THAT DEMON MAY HAVE ALREADY HAVE COME INTO YOUR BODY, AS THAT MIGHT BE WHY YOU FELT ALL YOUR JOINT ACHE WHEN YOU WERE USING IT!!!) If you read some of the stories on here, you will see that some people actuality did become possessed. This very serious!! Im not sure if you have read any of the other stories that people submitted here, but at least 3 of them, maybe more, right after using the Ouija board, had a demon in their house doing really scary things, knocking things over, turning lights on and off, even severely scratching their arm. They said that things kept happening even after not using the board. When you use this, you are opening up portals which allows these demons to come into you home. Please don’t use this anymore, if for no other reason than you care about your siblings and don’t want demons to be around to torment them and/or to possess them and you. Im not sure if you are aware how those demons became demons, but let me fill you in. A long long time Satan, who was called Lucifer at the time, was a really beautiful angel that was like no other in heaven. He was in charge of all the music in heaven, which was made to glofify God. Lucifer was so beautiful and talented that he thought that he should be the one that was worshipped in heaven and one third of the angels in heaven agreed. So Lucifer and one third of the angels were kicked out of heaven. Thats when Lucifer became known as Satan or the devil and the angels became known as fallen angels or demons. Demons are not good. They are the opposite of the loving God and Jesus. Just like Satan, they are liars and the biggest lie that they tell people is that they are their dead relative or other dead person. Don’t believe anything that they say. I know that it is tempting to experience the unknown and see how the Ouija board works, but it is way beyond not being a good idea. These are demons from hell. In the Bible God says that it is an abomination to communicate with “spirits”. God created us and knows whats best for us. He wants to protect us from things that will cause us pain and cause us harm. If you still have the board, PLEASE throw it out like many other people sharing these stories have been smart enough to do. The devil and his demons want to kill you, steal from you and destroy you. Turn to God who loves you soo much and wants to talk to you and hear all of your concerns. Ask Him for help to not be tempted to use the Ouija board. Ask God for forgiveness for all your sins, including using the Ouija board. Jesus took upon himself all of the world’s sins and died on a cross many years ago so that you and i can pray directly to God and have a personal relationship with Him. You just have to ask Jesus to come into your heart and then he will make you a new person. Once you do this you will never look back. God Bless you

      1. But biblical god doesn’t really exist and bible is not true, it was written by men who wanted to control the masses. From my experience, ouija board is nothing serious, me and 3 more friends were constantly using it for months and nothing happened. Remember if you summoned anything evil it can feed only from your fear. The more fear you show it the stronger it becomes. It can’t really feed on your soul, that’s wives tale, just forget about it.

      2. Some religions feed off of our fear, as well. They will hold up a standard for humans that is impossible to live up to. That keeps us feeling guilty and afraid, so we keep coming back to the church for forgiveness.

  25. I played the Quija board before and it was so freaky. The first time I played it with my brother and my cousins. One of my cousins didn’t placed her hands on it, but just watched. As usual, we asked if someone was there and it went to yes. Then we asked what its names was and it said random letters. We then asked how old she was and when she was born and she said that she was 6 years old and was born in 600 B.C. Then we asked how she died and she said Reinz. We didn’t understand what she meant. So we asked if she died by horse reins and she said yes. Then all of the sudden the “eye” started to go to zozozozo over and over. We then asked if her name was Zozo and she said yes. We asked her another question and then she just start to count. The “eye” went to 1, then to zozo, and then around the board. It then went to 2 and repeated it. Once it got to 5 we asked why she was counting up. She said U R DEAD. I then quickly said good bye and left the Quija board along for awhile after that.

    We again started playing the Quija board and a week, but I was just with my 2 cousins this time. My cousin didn’t place her hands on it this time either. As usual we asked if anyone was there and it said yes. Then we asked its name and it spelled out my cousin’s name who was playing it. Then we asked it’s middle and last name and it said my cousin’s. We then asked it where it lived and it said where my cousin lived. We were all very freaked out and my cousin who wasn’t playing wanted my other cousin to leave and when she asked my cousin to leave it went to NO. I asked it some questions but it would just quickly say FU to me and my cousin who wasn’t playing over and over. We then said quickly goodbye.

    After another week we again played it but this time I was just with my cousin who played before. We again encountered the spirit that was acting as if it was him. And we would ask it a few questions and again it would say FU to me, but not my cousin. After awhile, we said goodbye, but it wouldn’t go over it. Instead it went to NO over and over and tried to make the “eye” to go off the board but I didn’t let it. It then went to goodbye and I didn’t play it for another week.

    I brought some friends over to play it with me and when we asked if anyone was there no one would answer. But when my brother played, it would move. We asked what it’s name was and it went to Zozo! We asked if it would only move when my brother was playing and it said YES. My brother then freaked out and we said goodbye and we haven’t played it since.
    I know my brother wasn’t moving it because he wasn’t looking half the time.

  26. Zozo is REAL. The Ouija board used to be fun when it didn’t really work. But recently I had a very spiritual coworker and we decided to do the Ouija board just so I could finally see that it worked. Well every time we would do it, we would talk to Zozo. He wasn’t really violent at all with us, kind of like he was just as intrigued as we were with him. He would always pretend that he was another spirit though. He could read our thoughts, and lie about the future. A good way to KNOW that you’re talking to the spirit that it claims to be, is ask it a question that you don’t know, but you could find out later. I did that constantly, and then he would say that it was him because he did not know the answer. My house was EXTREMELY unsettling afterwards, things would move, lights would constantly blow afterwards, and I would wake up at 3am every night. I don’t think that he is a demon, I believe he’s a lost spirit and enjoys messing with human beings. If you ever get in contact with him, DO NOT TALK TO HIM. He WILL become attached to you and scare the crap out of you just for giggles.

    1. are you still waking up at 3 am? bcause you know they say that its the demonic witching hour because its the inversion of the time Christ died

  27. last night i did some reserch about Zozo and when i said her name my iphone Siri went on the i started to freak out this morning i had my glow lamp in a good steady spot and it fell

    this week on Friday i did the ouija board with my nana and i asked “are you an Angel ,Sun or a Demon moon. it went to moon i started to freak so my nana asked is the Demons a sir. it went to no. so i asked what was her name it first went to z i knew that it was Zozo so then it went to Zozo i freaked then i asked if she hated anyone it went to yes i asked who do you hate it went to U so i said goodbye? and whats odd id it only went to bye

  28. i am very surprised to see this, 27 yrs ago i too had an experience with OZ. never knowing that it was a world wide ancient phenomenon. this has confirmed an a real life encounter that i have had with this entity but only leaves me wondering more about this entity that has never left my life as well as a close family member.

  29. tonight a friend and i were playing with a home made ouija board and contacted zozo i heavaly believe in this stuff but she doesn’t it said zozo was male though not female and it also said my friend was going to die a day after her birthday due to paracetamol and sleeping tablet overdose it talked about both of her children then all of a sudden changed to someone else named F E or FE im so confused am an not sure if zozo is still with us or that was her?his way of saying goodbye either way soon we said goodbye to FE and went my friend went for a smoke and as soon as she left the room i had to go with her because i felt that there was something else with me what do i do

    1. Jess –

      Pray to God and ask Him to protect you in the name of Jesus Christ, and ask Him to save you.

      I’m serious; this is not a game. Satan wants nothing but to kill, steal, and destroy. The only safety we have is in Jesus Christ.

      I am praying for you, Jess.

      Never touch a Ouija board again, and avoid demonic and occult things as if your life depended on it. It does.

      May the Lord bless you and keep you safe in JESUS’ name.


      1. After years of not being sure but seeing quite a few miraculous events, and even though I do not go to any Church, and no matter how many cynics think we are crazy, I’m inclined to think you are right.

  30. It doesn’t matter what you use. You can make an Ouija board with a piece of construction paper and a shotglass, it has nothing to do with Parker Bros. Its not the particular board, its intention. You can get a bunch of people around a table and try to contact something or do a table tipping or bumping. If you call on an entity or focus on the paranormal, you are opening a gateway and this is dangerous. A board, or any board, Parker Bros or whatever, is just a tool. Its not the manufacturer. Im not overly book organized religion religious, but I am very spiritual with God. There is a section in the Bible where its written that God forbids and divination or contacting of spirits. The reason he forbids this is because we are here for our own personal development and growth and not to be interfered with by negative entities, which is the majority of what these boards, seances, etc actually connect with.

    Its like this: Don’t summon or play anything that involves invoking, scary sleepovers, etc. Dont play bloody mary in the bathroom mirror. Dont play with Ouija boards or Spirit Boxes.

    Instead: Pray for peace in your house. Pray every night that guardian angels bless and protect your house and ask God to send down guardian angels to watch over each member of your family. I have been doing this for over a year asking God to send down guardian angels to protect our house and family and things have been happening. Suddenly without reason, there are guardian angels statutes appearing all over our house. People are sending them to us in the mail without us asking for it. My sister has been sick and I asked for extra protection via two guardian angels. One night she looked up and there was a huge 7 foot tall extremely good looking man with fierce eyes holding a sword with white wings standing in her room by the stairs looking at her. She felt at peace, and he disappeared.

    Very powerful stuff. Choose to turn your attention toward God and the light and stop giving attention to dark things. Even if you dont go to church or Synagogue or Mosque, pray to God and have a personal relationship with him. Ask for peace and protection. And ask for protection via guardian angels, this is VERY POWERFUL. Remember, God is the most powerful being. All negative entities and daemons are forced to their knees in front of him. However, there is free will here on earth. You have the decision of which path you want to walk.
    No kidding or b.s. all true. I have had a few freaked out experiences with Ouija boards when I was younger. I won’t go into them, lets just say dont play with this stuff. Its like poking a sleeping bear. Would you do that because you were bored at a party? No. Pray every night before you sleep. Pray to connect to God, not just to ask him things. Your life will Vastly improve.

  31. Look for all you scared people, the spirit board does not work, science proves so. The reason manifestation is made and demonic possession occurs because the one who commits the spirit board act, has the intent to communicate with spirits and as a result … Demons have the ability to come through. A human physical being should not try to communicate with the other world, it is very dangerous. Read articeles on the Catholic Churches view on demonic possessions, they believe it, but preform the excorists quietly. If one does not provoke the spirits , the spirits shan’t manipulate you. Abi in Malam rem, ambulat ad mortu

  32. I will be releasing a book called The Zozo Phenomenon in June that will include the latest research on this mystery. Dozens of cases and true encounters sent to me the last decade will also be featured. Book will be available at ZozoPhenomenonBook.com

  33. What people don’t seem to understand or want to believe is that every thing that you encounter on a Ouija Board or via other occult devices are all demons. These things lie and will PRETEND to be dead people or aliens or even angels. It is not just Zozo, it is all of them that are dark. You cannot encounter “good” spirits. They will all have a negative effect on your life in some way, even if you think otherwise. There is no way to protect yourself before using a Ouija board. Prayers won’t help, because what you are about to do is forbidden in the Old Testament. Having a positive attitude doesn’t help either. Demons, are liars. They will trick you. They may tell you what you want to hear. They may tell jokes, give what seems like good advice, be friendly and funny, etc. They may even write poetry, BUT, they are demons and they ultimately want to destroy you. They want your soul. Never partake of the occult in any way, not even by reading your, “Daily Horoscope.” It’s all a lie and will ultimately effect your life negatively whether you even realize it or not.

  34. I know there are many people out there who do not believe that ouija boards “work”, or are truly capable of contacting entities not of this realm, and I’m certainly not trying to convince anyone that my experiences really occurred. In fact, I rarely speak about it. My sole reason for posting this is to hopefully give anyone who is considering experimenting with a ouija board a reason to reconsider. My first time using one was when I was 14, just hanging out with friends. I think all of us kinda suspected that someone was secretly pushing the planchette. (I know I did at first). The entity we contacted claimed to be a teenage boy, and seemed to know the answers to things it shouldn’t have any way of knowing. We noticed that a mobile that was hanging from the ceiling in my bedroom began to move in a constant circle during the session, and the entity claimed to be moving it. When the exchange began to turn increasingly negative, we decided we’d had enough, ending the experience. What didn’t end, however, was the movement of the mobile in my bedroom. It continued to move in a constant circle, despite the windows being closed and there being no detectable breeze of any kind. That movement continued for over 2 weeks! It literally did not quit moving for that entire time, and I finally ended up taking it down because it bothered me so much. That was enough to keep me from using a ouija board again for many years. But when I was older, (college age), and married, during a party with friends I was enticed into trying it once again. As the questions/answers got more and more unreal in terms of what the entity seemed to know, one of my friends began to challenge whether or not it was real, and asked it to prove it. It was during this exchange that the entity gave it’s name, OZOZOZOZ.

    Anyway, it claimed it would write things with paper and pen “through” the friend that had challenged its existence. And it seemed to do just that, as my friend began to do what I now know as “automatic writing’, and Bible verses began to be written word for word. I wasn’t sure that my friend wasn’t just pulling a hoax on all of us, and taking advantage of the ongoing ouija session to do it. Knowing that I didn’t know many Bible verses by heart, I volunteered to try it myself. To my astonishment, I began to write down Bible verses, word for word, with my eyes closed! When the same friend that had challenged the entity previously began to make even more jeering comments, the writings I was doing suddenly changed, and appeared to be jibberish. But after studying the paper, someone suggested we try looking at the writing in a mirror. To my shock and horror, the writings were still Bible verses, but now they were written backwards! The very last one was not only written backwards, but was also upside down! When people use the saying, “My blood ran cold”, I know exactly what they mean, because that’s exactly what I felt at that moment! I have never, ever, felt such fright in my life! I have never touched a ouija board again, and caution those in my life against it with my story-which is the only time I mention it. I know I am fortunate that nothing worse happened to me as a result of that ouija board encounter, and that any number of disastrous things could have occured. So please, I beg you, if you are considering experimenting with one, DON’T DO IT! They are no joke, and you are opening yourself up to things over which you have no control.

  35. NEVER END THE SESSION WITHOUT ASKING THE SPIRIT FIRST. Last night, four of my friends and I were using one of their Ouija board. The first time we got Zozo, and when he said he was evil we started screaming but kept playing. He started saying things like death and kill, and also sygak1 if anyone knows what that means. We repeatedly asked him if he was ready to say goodbye and he said no every time. Finally, my friends parents started telling us to stop and we begged him to finish and he said yes so we said goodbye. A few hours later we used it again and we got mama this time. People think that mama is evil, but it is usually probably Zozo pretending to be her. Mama is gentle and friendly and actually tries to protect people from Zozo, but she is not as strong. We really liked mama and when asked, she said she likes us as well. After a while, she started going still for a few minutes and then waking up, and so we asked her if she was ready to end and we did. Nothing bad really happened, but when one of my friends started to laugh at Zozo he wanted her to die. I was apologizing to both the spirits a lot, and I think that is why my friends still alive…

  36. Yeah, it happened to me and my boyfriend and friends. We were contacted by this entity and it moved the planchet in figure 8s. It kept coming back when we tried it again hours later. We got rid of the board. Im still pretty creeped out years later.

  37. I was 15 or 16 and I found an old ouiji board at goodwill and decided to buy it. The moment I got home I took it out and asked if anyone was there, it spelled out Lily and we talked for a while. Lily was a 10 year old girl who had died of hypothermia in the 1940’s and then she all of a sudden said no over and over again before going silent for a while. The planchete, after taking my hands off of it, started moving to the z and o over and over again. I asked what it’s name was after it stopped and put my hands back on the planchete, again it spelled zozozozozozo so I ended up calling it zo, for short of the zozozozozozo… it hated me. It wanted me dead. I asked it how I would die and it said “me”. I said goodbye and quickly put away the board, I was scared then (and it still freaks me out even today) and I just put the board in my closet and didn’t touch it for weeks… next time I did the only thing it said was “leave” then went to goodbye. I did some research on zo and found a bunch of pages like this one, all saying that zozo was some type of harmful spirit or demon and freaked out, called a priest, and burned the board in the next bonfire I had. A day or 2 after burning the board I got into a car crash after looking in my rear-view mirror and seeing someone in my back seat and looking back for a split second. I hit a telephone pole and broke one of my legs and had to keep the cast for a month…

    After that I never touched a ouiji board again until 2 years later and one of my old friends had invited us all over for a party. After we were all good and partied-out, he opened the closet and a ouiji board fell out. I screamed and ran over to grab it… he kicked it out of my way and picked it up, asking why I was so freaked out… I guess I must have never told him what happened the first time I used one because 10 minutes later we were all in the kitchen, asking if anyone was there. zozozozozo. I got curious and one of my friends asked how they were going to die. Heart attack. Another one asked. Drowning. Then I asked. Me. all my friends thought it meant I would commit suicide and looked at me for a second, giving me surprised looks. I then just walked away, remembering the shadow in the back of my car. I haven’t played with one since then and never plan to.

  38. Me and my fiancé just recently used the Ouija board and communicated with zozo. It said that he wanted her… We’re going to a priest soon and are properly disposing of the board, but we’ve noticed alto of strange things happening in the house. I woke up to her mumbling gibberish this morning. My number is 3044949982 any help sent through text would be greatly appreciated, before it is too late.

  39. No Zozo he dosnt posses u be plays with u i know this because i have encounterd with it it is worse than a demon all those results of him so called possessing people is just him messing with them i know that because i iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  40. Coming here from a YouTube video (faze Rug’s). He posted another Ouija board video except this time his conversation was interrupted by an entity who kept alternating between a and s when asked any question and tried to get out multiple times. Also it was able to control the planchet for a very brief period of time with only one participant involved. The comment section was haywire with idiots spewing all sorts of BS. I’m a big fan of this guy and would like to know if there is any way of helping him as he complained of waking up at 3 am and hearing knocking sounds.

    1. ooo, I love Faze too, anyway we know he really cant sleep at night..right?
      he wakes up at 3 am…the ‘witching hour’ he hears noises sometimes, and I remember one video he put a camera in his room and he saw that something kept pushing is arm. so, he has a spirit in his house, he can only really call a priest to bless his house or he can try to do it himself which is a bad idea, because if he does it wrong the spirit will get worst

  41. A lot of my friends did ouija quite often. It became a daily thing. At first there were 5 spirits. Then there was Zozo. (We didn’t know what he was until after). We found he was evil since another good spirit had tried to scare us by pretending to be Zozo. The same spirit had also said it was a common name evil spirits used to sound friendly. After a few weeks we knew hundreds of spirits.
    One time me a friend and her sister were on the board. No matter who we switched to the spirit seemed angry at the sister and wanted her to say goodbye. All the while there were good spirits SHOUTING in the sister’s head, saying it wasn’t true. It turned out Zozo was pretending to be all those spirits and we gave him energy when we played. He wanted to kill the sister because she had rejec5ed him in a past life.

  42. spirits cant hurt you, demons can though..and poltergeists cant either, I’m pretty sure they can only move objects.
    anyway maybe oujia is ZoZo, ZoZo has lots of names.. like MaMa, ZaZa, Oz, and of course ZoZo. Oujia could just be another name for ZoZo

  43. My friend wrote in my notebook she borrowed, and that she said Zozo 5 times and been’s hearing noices around her house ever since- particularly bells and banging on her back door. She said that she would hear 3 bell rings and then 3 bangs on her back door. Every single time. I was so idiotic to do this and now I hear noices too. I said zozo 5 times in my dining room then went to the bathroom to wash my hands since I was helping my father cook and as i was closing the door, I heard a bang on the wall.

    I thought someone was outside, so I looked out the bathroom window- but noone was there. After I was finished cooking, I went to lay down. I then heard another bang on my wall and it sounded like someone was scribbling on paper!

    Now i’m laying in my bed writing this and just a few minutes ago, it sounded like someone was hitting my kitchen table with a wooden stick! I couldn’t even count how many times it happened, but it was a lot. i suggest you guys DO NOT say zozo 5 times, unless you want to get haunted.. anyway bye.
    And if you do decide to do this, I only want to say this- Good luck.

  44. When I tried the Ouija board I contacted zozo. Ever since then my house hasn’t been the same. I got locked in my garage and pushed to the floor. One night at 4:00 I heard a knock on my door and I look out it and there is a peice of paper saying leave. Last night I kept hearing noises downstairs and then I played the ougia board and I said leave me alone tonight and it said ok but you don’t want to know what’s coming for you toomarow. That’s some of my experiences with zozo! Or maybe some other spirits here and there!

  45. I was on YouTube, watching FaZe Rug playing Ouija board in the strange storage room with lots of things when they asked the name of the spirit, it almost read ZO then Brian (FaZe Rug) said ‘No, NO LETS END THE SESSION’ When they said can we say goodbye? ZoZo said yes and they ended the game. But NEVER believe a spirit it could lie to you dont trust demons and evil spirits!

  46. zozo was a person who killed maybe somewhere around 100 people he was a murderer and a rapist he died of something and possesed a little tiny girl ya you saw at the top and the mysterys went around now the reason was that he raped the little girl when she died and ya…

  47. Zozo is in my house I played with him and he told us his whole story we believe him and his dad are both named zozo and the kid is not the evil one unfortunately we encountered the evil one. Should I be fine tonight what do I do please respond quickly !!

  48. I doubt the demon really influenced that much but if youre paranoid see a priest or imam about it.

  49. The demon will most likely want you to submit to its whim, once you have its done its job.

  50. zozo once told my mums best friend how she was gonna die, my mums best friend ended up dying the exact same way.


  52. I talked to zozo today, he said he is my dad somehow and Satan is my uncle. Idk if they said it to anybody else but something scart happened today with me and Satan. I went to the park and I contacted Satan and he decides to say zozo name 24 times. if you guys don’t know what that means its very bad. search it up. my heart feels so weak and idk what to do. help me somebody. it hurts so bad. Today I contacted zozo mom. Said her name was Lola. Zozo has never turned negative on me. He said he loves me and all. Never has he gotten mad or anything. He said he cannot hurt me because im too vital. Does anybody know why this is happening to my heart. It hurts so bad. And satan was the one who said his name 24 times. Not zozo. Satan has never become negative on me. He wanted to get my friend savanna but it never worked. It worked on me. He wanted to do it on my friend savanna because she made fun of satan when he told us how he died. He said he got hit by a car 666 times which I don’t know about that. Hes a fallen angel. So any body know or have any explanation on why zozo says hes my dad or why satan is my uncle and what wrong with my heart?

  53. i have encountered zozo before and it has repeated its name thousands of times but i as with best friends she was a girl of course and im a boy but he kept saying boy alot and saying how wants to kill all boys because. they would bully him. I also asked ho i would die he said when im 12 and sayed seatbelt and i was like wtf and i was crying so ya maybe ill die in a car accident.

    1. I would not put much stock in what ‘it’ says. There are low level entities that just like to upset people. Often they are not too bright or accurate. Stop playing around with it.

      I used to use the board regularly, but after a while it got boring. I would often get zozo – this was maybe 50 years ago. I just put the board to bed when that occurred because it seemed to monopolize the board and was not a reliable source of information.

  54. my mum use to live across from a cemetery and she once contacted zozo. every now and then while im in bed i hear a male voice whisper to me and i see some of my stuff floating. could this be his work?

  55. I met zozo I was really scared at first,but we ended becoming friends, but he doesn’t like many people for example the 3rd person who we were playing with, zozo wanted him to die.

      1. ah yes i know so i burned the board and laughed like a mueder and then procided to stab 7 people with a pencil to prove that i am truly evil, i have 2 A+’s, 2 B’s, and 2 C+’s in school so im not human (i like typing today so i gave you a bunch of unessary info)

    1. Told my daughter her friends dean.. well “Bri dead” I made them throw it in a dumpster after I did the leave my children alone.. now it won’t let her play. But definitely not friendly.. sheep in wolves clothing

  56. If a demon is either a fallen angel or bad spirit, then we know it is limited in its powers and abilities. They are not all knowing, ever present, or all powerful. Even Satan is limited in power and abilities. Only the divine has any of the “omni” characteristics. So, Zozo is probably not real, and if somehow he is real, you are most likely not messing with him. if he can only be ij one place at once, why would he bother 14 year old teenage girls, instead of powerful men and women who rule society?

  57. My friend and I used a ouija board a few weeks ago and zozo spelled out on the board.. at first it spelled znbo and then zo so my friend was kinda warned but I didn’t know about it at the time. For countless times zozo has come back and now started identifying to itself as mama.. yesterday another spirit told us it wanted to save us from zozo. It’s quite weird so we filmed the whole conversation. At first we didn’t think a ouija board would work but we tried to use it alone once and it was working really weirdly.. we also got weird codes from zozo that actually mean smt and were quite baffled by all this

  58. Listen, if any of you ever feel like you’re different than usual after playing the Ouija Board or something did come to your house and you live in the east coast in the US, please go to On Angel’s Wings in Bordentown, NJ. My dad has worked with these ladies for YEARS with his Ghost Investigation group and they’re as real as it gets. If you have something attached to you, they and yourself will know the moment you walk through that door. If nothing happens, then I’m happy for you! But still go to them and tell them what’s going on and what they should do. I don’t work for them but I remember when I was at my worst, my dad brought me to them and they found out about everything and I mean EVERYTHING that was wrong with me, and were able to fix it. I won’t say this will happen to everyone, I’m an empath and the reason why I felt depressed and sick all of these years was because I didn’t know how to properly ground myself and was sucking up everyone else’s negative feelings, so that’s why it had such an impact when they helped me, but you should still go either way. If nothing’s wrong or if it’s in your head, they’ll tell you straight out that nothing’s wrong and say no. If you have something happening at your property, I believe they’ll still check it out with you to see if there’s anything going on but still I’m not sure if they do that anymore. They’re very straight forward and if you have nothing, they won’t make you pay for services you don’t need. They are as real as you can possibly get and are the people you want to go to, especially if you want to know more about these kinds of things or want to dispel negative energy

  59. so i made my own ouija board and it wasnt working well… i put it under my bed …. face up…. for a few years. and i am seeing dark figuers and losing sleep, and having bad luck…
    please help

  60. important………
    before and after playing always think happy thoughts they dont grow if they cant feed

  61. what is weird me and my friends printed off a oiuja board n tryed it with a glass and the first thing it said was “ex” then we asked what is your real name and it said “kelly” then we asked is that your real name it started to go to MA-MA we didnt know what it ment at the time but every time either of us asked a question it said MA-MA for me then ZO-ZO for one of my friends then ZA-ZA for my last friend we got scared n put it away then we went back to it n played again and it did the exact same thing over again we asked if it was one of are family members it said yes but i know it was lying cause it already said ZO-ZO MA-MA ZA-ZA and i know he lies i would not recommend playing the oujia board for anyone and if u want to then you better look up the rules and whats bad n whats good cause i dont know if im haunted or not anymore

  62. I played ouija yesterday with a bunch of friends. It was super weird and I spoke to my dead grandad. (I know it was him) then we played for another time and the spirit called itself zozo. From then on it just kept typing weird letters over and over again. Like tgtgtgtgt. Then it would try and do a figure of 8. We asked it were it lived and it spells out my friends name. We asked it what it wanted and it said nothing. Then it tried to escape really quickly then left. After that, we played once more and I felt a really strong urge to let the spirit out or play on my own. I even asked the spirit if I should play on my own with it. Then I had to walk home and I got a tune stuck in my head that I had never heard and had no idea where it came from.

  63. From eveything I’ve read about demons and learned recently of ZoZo, he’s a demon of fate and not of the best kind out there. So if you or if your with friends and your playing with the ouija board and you get him to awnser, or if it starts to count numbers backwards quickly say goodbye, another is if it’s making a sideway 8 you should quickly say goodbye. But if things are going bad and you dint say goodbye a method to make it all stop is to have the people with you that was playing the game along with a priest and stand there untill the entire board is ash.

  64. I never encountered Zozo, however I can still share my terrifying experience playing with the Ouija board. This memory is over a decade old, so bear with me.

    My boyfriend at the time thought it would be fun to try it. So we bought one and set it up in my room, but it wouldn’t work. So I decided to try it with someone else and took it over to my friend’s house. We made contact with something almost immediately. It answered slowly at first, but as the session went on, the planchette would move so fast we had to write down the letters to keep track of what it was saying. It named itself. It was some name in Latin that we didn’t understand. We later looked it up and found the name on Wikipedia. It was a name of an actual demon, that was described as being very sexual. This intrigued me. I would come over every night and my friend and I would play. We asked it once what it was most afraid of, and it answered God. The demonic spirit was never cruel, but it was seductive and beguiling. It would speak sorrowfully over how all it wanted was to feel what making love to a woman was like. I asked, who do you want to have sex with? And it replied, “You.” I asked how it could experience sex with me and it replied, “Invite me” it wanted me to give it permission to leave the board. I asked it what would happen after that, and it replied, “I need a body.” My guy friend slammed the board shut and refused to go any further.

    Ever since then, I have had a dark and evil presence in my house. It’s in one room, upstairs, which used to be the attic. We hear banging and children giggling at night. One time, my mom awoke to the sound of a loud, guttural growl, that was neither human nor animal. Once, I had just gone to bed and was laying there wide awake. I felt something weird so I turn over, and this 10ft tall “shadow man” was leaning over staring at me. Most terrifying moment ever. My house definitely has a demonic spirit attached to it now.

  65. I have been followed by a “demon” named aj who always says his name is zozo not to much later after asking questions. I don’t know if they really have any relation and can’t find anything on the internet about aj, if anyone has any info on aj please please me know: (

  66. I communicated with this thing for many many years but I thought he was spelling out azazal the fallen angel.. wrecked havoc and tried my children to, it don’t let them now because “ mom no no” I’m assuming that means because I said leave my children the hell alone?? Took me forever to come up with that name.. kinda upset I was wrong lol no really I’m not but.. once I yelled and asked what it wanted it said my face and every single light in my moms house burnt out.. yeah stay away from that.. figure 8, tries to slide off the side, back and forth… actually real irritating loland evil.. straight evil!

  67. Zozo is one of the more prominent and well-known demonic beings. From reality television shows to literature, Zozo is commonly reported as being behind paranormal activity and hauntings. But, Asking if ZoZo’s Real? The answer…Is NO!!

  68. I know the comments section in this article is probably deader than St. Jude, but oh well. I have a Ouija board at work me and my secretary play on occasion during the day. Zozo is the number one guy on this board. He will NOT let any other spirits or enteties come through at all! I have tried clearing the board, demanding that zozo leave, and even talked nasty to him. He won’t budge! Any suggestions on getting him out of my board? He is really quite boring and refuses to do anything fun…

  69. I have a ouija board story that I share whenever these topics come up amongst friends. I was about 15 or 16 and borrowed a friend’s board to play with another group of friends. We used it 4 or 5 times over a few days. I ended up burning it (the friend who owned wasnt very pleased with me). My experience started with friendly spirit/spirits correctly answering questions and giving charming details of past lives. We were amazed and interested. At some point a spirit indentified himself as zozos (the name i use in my tale these past 30 years). After that things got creepier. Strange movements of the planchette, cryptic morbid answers to our questions, and the spelling of one of my friends name. The next 2 or 3 usages the same name and board behavior occurred. You could feel that something was wrong or evil about this spirit. My father burned the board, and I said some prayers. This happened in 1989 or 1990. I am astonished to see a name from my own “ouija board story” is well known as ouija demon.

  70. I’ve spoken with the zozo. It was not pleasant and i would not recommend trying. My girlfriend and i thought the idea of it was intriguing. We had her board out talked to some kinda weaker spirts one nice one. My girlfriend digs up some demonic prayer meant to summon zozo, once she said that the eye piece moved with much more speed and at a higher rate. It knew both our names and said it was zozo. I started to feel alot of negative energy so i took my hand off and it stopped moving. I’m glad we did not go further as negative dreams and just over all bad vibes followed for weeks after at my girlfriends house. I have no clue if its demonic, but the prayer she said definitely ended in a “hail satan” and you bet zozo ****ing came. Its still one of the only things that can insight fear in me. Reading above gave me chills and i swear i can sense him from time to time when trying to learn more. I usally combat with love towards myself at it.
