There are plenty of items in Phasmophobia that can help you during your ghost hunts. Thermometers, cameras, crucifixes, and other objects will aid you as you try to determine what phantom is haunting the map you are on.
One of the best items in the game, however, is the ouija board. Locating one of these will be a huge help to you and your crew. They enable you to ask specific questions to the ghost, and the responses you receive from those queries will bring you closer to the truth. So, how do you find an ouija board in Phasmophobia?
Ouija boards are not part of your item haul on your investigations truck. The only way that you can find an ouija board is randomly on any map that you can play on. You can go 20 missions without finding one, or you can luckily have them spawn randomly in consecutive games.
If you do stumble across an ouija board, you can use it to ask the paranormal entity, which you are looking for, questions to get to the bottom of their ghost type. You need to left-click on your mouse to activate an ouija board. It will start to glow, and this is your cue to begin asking questions. There are five question categories you can use to get answers out of the ghost, and you can read them all below:
- How old are you/What is your age?
- Are you old/young?
- How long have you been dead?
- How many years ago did you die/When did you die?
- How long have you been here?
- Where are you?
- What is your favorite room?
- Where is your room?
- Are you here/close?
- How many people are in this room/How many people are here?
- How many ghosts are in this room?
- Are you/we alone?
- Who is in this room?
- Who did you kill/Who died?
- Who is your victim?
- What is the name of the person you killed/murdered?
- Did you murder someone?
Make sure that you say these questions as clearly as possible. Listen out for the ghost’s responses — ensure nobody else is talking — so you can make notes in your journal and determine what to ask next, or what room to head to.
The ouija board can make the ghost very angry too. If you antagonize it too much, it will cause your sanity to fall 25%, and it will reset your ghost hunting progress.
