  1. 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...

  2. 1938 Life Magazine with article about National Marble Champion Bill Kloss

    I found this photo illustrated article about Bill Kloss who was the 1937 National Marble Champion. The article is in the sports section of the April 25, 1937 issue of Life magazine. I'm sure you all have seen this before.

  7. Bad news / Good news

    Kansas City's largest ever marble tournament record of 677 players fell after only 8 months. Their reign ran from August to May. The record is now held by an elementary school in Oregon. Over 750 players. Possibly a sign of increasing interest in the game?

  10. 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...
