English term or phrase: Ouija Board
Ouija Borad
I need a Polish translation. This is a board used for communicating with ghosts. It has all the alphabet letters on it.

Polish translation:tabliczka Ouija or stolik spirytystyczny
Explanation:
There is no proper Polish translation of the Ouija board (great fun I might add). I did though find a webpage that deals with this. The address is www.republika.pl/alexfbi/seans.htm. This page shows a Ouija board with the Polish translations of the fields.

Don't let the ghosts get you.

wirujący stolik


Explanation:
Wirujący stolik = «stolik używany podczas seansów spirytystycznych, poruszany rzekomo przez wywoływane duchy»
"Ouija board" is a trademark, and has not exact equivalent in Polish, but "wirujący stolik" is the closest, I think. Otherwise you have to describe it:
"tabliczka zawierająca litery i liczby, służąca do komunikacji z duchami podczas seansów spirytystycznych" (a board with letters and signs on it, which people use to try to receive messages from the spirits of the dead)

disagree  KamilaRos: W tym przypadku lepiej zawrzeć nazwę własną, plansza Oujia czy coś podobnego. Ze stolikiem, wirującym czy nie, raczej nie ma nic wspólnego ;)
