The ball is filled with water and contains a multi-face dice, with each side featuring the answer to a question. To use it, ask the eight-ball a closed, yes or no type question and then shake it. Turn the ball over to reveal a transparent window with an answer pressed against it. Answers include “Absolutely”, “Consult me later”, “Chances aren’t good” and several others.
This is not only a fun novelty toy, but also a pop culture icon!
