  2. Table Top Marble Game Design ideas and more advice please.

    Could anyone give me some ideas on how to make a tabletop version of a marble game. Traditional marble game please. I want to make about 4 game boards for Senior Citizens at my fathers nursing home. So the design has to be pretty fool proof. They cannot bend down to pick the marbles off the...

  3. I have lots of "junk marbles" - donation time?

    I don't know many "marble collectors" well, but the few I've met have one thing in common with me: we all have boxes of "junk" marbles that are either not collectible, or not worth keeping (duplicates, bad shape, etc). Looking for ideas and other participants! -As a community, could we donate...

  4. when I was a kid.....

    I grew up in the 60's, and the game of marbles was king in the schoolyard. I remember waiting for recess to go outside and "knuckle down" with the other kids. There were several games to choose from. We played "Ringer", "Bunny Hole", and "Chase". Bunny Hole was the one where you stuck your heel...

  5. Question Milkie rules?

    There's a game called "Milkie" described in Ferretti's "The Great American Marbles Books". The description is copied pretty much verbatim on this webpage: http://www.refinerofgold.com/marbles/games/circle.html This description raises far more questions than it answers. What does "hit to a...

  6. A Great Day of Marbles

    Hey all. Had a fun-filled day of marbles today. My wife and I first hit the flea market before going to our neices third birthday party. Anyway, I scored a jar with two nice Masters, pulled them, dumped the rest out on the sand volleyball court, and set up a simplified game of "Rolley Hole." ...

  9. Physics

    I am looking for information on the physics of playing a game of marbles for use in introducing elementary children to Newton's Laws. Can anyone provide links to resources that might apply? Thank you!

  12. Question "chase," how was it played

    This game sounds quite fun, but I have read this post several times, but am unable to understand quite what the writer was trying to say. Can anyone provide me with a better description/more detail of how this game was played. I am sure people who have played this game before can make perfect sense...

  13. Unhappy Question Marbles: Will we ever play again?

    I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma: part of the "Heartland." As cities go, it is small and many people are quite traditional in most aspects of life. But, just like the rest of the country, children and adults both would prefer to watch a movie, or play on the Wii versus scattering a few tiny spheres on the...

  14. Question Childhood memory of repairing my agates

    Sixty-five years old, attempting to explain the game of marbles to my grandkids. As a kid in WV, I was quite a hustler in a 5 or 6 foot dirt ring, but was never able to win the city tournaments playing on a hard wooden surface in the '50s. My reason for registering is to ask a question that may...
