I have played with a board before, and it do nothing. The girl who bought the board, read the rules, and said, "it's best to have equal female to male ratio." Us all being females.You would think that not following the rules would have dire consequence, but nothing.
One of us is Agnostic, one is Muslim, and I am Pagan, now, but that's our own expiriences. I can communicate with spirits, and I have many people too count for my accuracy, and it wasn't the board that gave me that, "gift." I was blessed with it.
