So what is a magic 8 ball anyway? If you are a child of the 80’s or 90’s, you must remember the wildly popular black plastic magic 8 ball toy made by Mattel. About twice the size of the 8 billiards ball you will find on your pool table, the classic Mattel Magic 8 ball provided hours of fun and mystery to millions of teens and preteends mystified by its “fortune-telling” powers. Is the magic 8 ball really able to make accurate predictions about the future? How does the magic eight ball really work? How do you play?

Both the Mattel magic 8 ball and the online 8 ball game by LEGOMENON are really easy to play. With the classic Mattel 8 ball, all you had to was hold the eight ball in your hand and ask your yes or no question out loud or in your head with the 8 facing up. After asking your question, all you have to do is just flip the plastic ball over and your very own prediction would slowly appear on a little blue triangle. Its strangely accurate predictions definitely seem real to those of us who are still kids at heart, but some online cynics have tried to debunk the 8 ball mystery by revealing the somewhat scientific inner workings of our favorite fortune-telling toy. We don’t know about you, but we choose to still believe in the Magic Ball!
How do you play the online magic 8 ball game? The rules are very similar and equally easy when it comes to the online version of the game. While you obviously can’t physically hold the eight ball in the online version of the fortune-telling game, you still can just think of your question in your head and then “click” your mouse to the see your prediction. It’s really easy and very addictive (trust us on this one). Head on over to LEGOMENON to play the game online now! Hope you have at least a few minutes to spare because we predict you won’t be able to stop playing after just one prediction!
