Snowball crossbow prepares you for upcoming winter battles

Snowball fights are fun, but if you really want to be the king of the hill, this snowball crossbow will add some medieval style firepower to your arsenal.

The Crossbow Snow Launcher can send your snowballs 60-feet, which doesn't actually sound too impressive. It comes complete with a snowball press that makes three perfectly formed balls in one operation, so you should have plenty of ammo.

Of course you might run into a gang of kids armed with those Jai Alai style ball hurlers we saw last year.

The Crossbow Snow Launcher is available now for $40, although the fact that seller The Sharper Image has only a digital rendering rather than an actual photo seems a bit suspicious.
