“Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Conversations With Dead People” by Dark Horse Comics (Dark Horse, 2008)

Conversations with Dead Peoplestarstar

With the growing enterprise that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer – even though the show is long finished – doing very well with the successful comic book series co-written by creator Joss Whedon; Dark Horse Comics presents the original Buffy board game: Conversations With Dead People.

The board game is essentially a fancy-looking Ouija Board lavishly designed with clear letters and flowery corner patterns.  With a large planchette that makes the board very easy to use, it is the ideal gift for any Buffy fan who has ever wished to dabble in the “dark arts” and take a step into the “supernatural world.”  It is also an excellent Ouija Board for those looking, regardless of their interest in the successful show.

And for those novices looking at the Ouija Board for the first time, there is a one-page entertaining comic instruction featuring Willow, Dawn, and Xander as the wise witch gives Xander the details on how to use the board, and that it is not for fun, to which Xander replies, “What? I’m serious . . .”
