    Question bring round

    Dear Teachers,
    I have to translate some pages of a crime novel for my translation class (into German). It was written by a scottish writer and I am not sure about the meaning of round in this sentence:

    "...and once revived she would swear never to let her clairvoyant sister-in-law bring the ouija board round again, before phoning a Catholic priest to come out and exorcise the place..."

    Does it mean "to bring the ouija board (with) into the house?" or does it mean "to bring (=play) a round of ouija in the house" like in the sense of "a round of skat."

    I appreciate your time and help
    Cheers
    Cyberkuki
