('talking board', means of fortunetelling)
AnnaS
Russian translation:witchboard - блюдцеверчение, блюдце заменили на доску с буквами
Explanation:
Поскольку слово образовано из франц."oui" и немецкого "ja" - английское "weega" можно передать на русском как "уига".

Ouija.
Ouija boards commonly pronounced as weegee boards, are a common practice in most teens lives, most people can say that they have tried them at least once. The name Ouija is actually the combination of the French and German words for Yes and is actually commonly mispronounced. It should be called a weega(phonetic pronounciation) instead of a weegee board. Yes in German, being pronounced ya or Ja rather than gee.
Most people's first experiences with Ouija boards, otherwise known as Spirit, Witch, or Talking Boards, is a negative one. As common mistakes are often made.

...возникшее в начале XIX в. в США на основе европейской пневматологии (СМ.) и местного протестантского мистицизма (Дэвис). Амер. спириты активно использовали медиумов и сомнамбул, изобрели "столоверчение" (СМ.) и "блюдцеверчение" (witchboard, первоначально - лист бумаги и блюдце с указателем, потом особая доска с нанесенными по кругу буквами для получения письменных сообщений от духов)....
