I purchased a ka-bala today and the marble was missing. Do you know the size of the marble so I can find one to replace it with, and do you know if they were all red?


hi kevin,
yeah the kabala marble is what we used to call a 'boulder' larger than a standard marble, & it's dark purpley-red to almost black, hope this helps..

Steve Barton

Hey! Do you have an email you can be reached at? I have a question about Ka-Bala but would rather ask privately. I can be reached at [email protected]


now if you scroll to the bottom of this post you'll see 2 links where i've scanned the original instruction page in full size pdf files, both sides, and one where i've stitched the instructions together into one page :)


Hi, I was wondering if you knew anyone who was selling this game? Very curious about it and would love to use it. Thank you


i was able to get this one on ebay like everyone else i suppose, for best results i'd save a search for it there & toggle it to text you immediately when one comes up so you get the first shot at it..
i see a couple up there now but one is missing pieces ~

good luck! :D

Hi Ghost, just found your interesting site and this great post about Ka-Bala. I just recently started doing something I've always wanted to do... collect some Ouija boards! I have a few now and I just added this interesting toy, which goes great with my Transogram Green Ghost. Anyways, I'm missing some cards for mine, so if/when you get a chance, would you also consider scanning the two sides of the little tarot cards for other collectors like me? Thanks for your consideration.


hey david,
i'm afraid the cards are still sealed & unseparated as you can see in the pic, so i just photo'd both sides of the card packet itself.. :( i don't really want to open them, you know? also it's put away in a safe but hard to reach spot..) sorry about that..
we love green ghost, posted that one up here too:

David Greelish

Thank you for your reply, and have been enjoying your website, yeah, Green Ghost is awesome and I look forward to try and get the two displayed together. Hopefully I can make my own replacements from the images on the directions and by finding references to their text online.


if you click on the images above it will bring up the larger size if that helps, also the pdfs at the end of the post have lots of good detail :D
