logo on the exterior (i.e. Ace of Spades, Joker) and card-game related
text on the inside floating die (i.e. Hold, Raise, Fold).
1) I claim that The Poker Magic Ace Ball is a card game novelty in the
shape of a hollowed-out ball with a flat translucent bottom that is
filled with liquid and a floating multi-surfaced die bearing card-game
related text on the inside and a card-game logo on the outside, when the
ball is turned over so that the flat side faces up the die floats to the
top displaying the random text and providing players with answers to
card-game related questions.
