Bela Talbot's spirit board.

A spirit board is a tool that allows communication to the dead. They come in different forms but they usually have letters, numbers and a planchette (little plank) that would allow a spirit, ghost or other supernatural being to spell out words. Using them may or may not require psychics, for using the spirit boards have shown to be effective regardless.

Sam often uses one, and refers to it as a "Talking Board".


Sam uses a spirit board to communicate with Dean's spirit.

Spirits that were contacted through the board were either manifesting around the general area, as with the case of Dean when Sam tried to communicate with him, or when the spirits are finely attuned to a certain object or person, as the case when Bela Talbot uncovered information on the Rabbit's Foot,[1] and Gordon's transformation into a vampire.[2]
