Giant Magic 8 Ball from Cardinal Games

Company: Cardinal Games
Available: Now
Price: $24.99 USD

The Magic 8-Ball remains one of my favorite vintage divination devices.

Now, Cardinal Games has super-sized one’s ability to unlock the answers to life’s most profound questions. The company’s Giant Magic 8-Ball measures a whopping 10.5-inches in diameter and weighs 3 pounds, allowing it to double as both a personal Oracle as well as part of your at-home exercise routine.

Like its smaller counterpart, the Giant Magic 8-Ball contains answers imprinted on a 20-sided icosahedron die. Giving it a shake reveals answers in one of three categories: 10 are affirmative, 5 are negative, and 5 are non-committal.

Take a weekly look at a modern-day thing with a nostalgic influence.
