A forum for chat about playing marbles

  1. 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...

  3. Playing marbles

    I made a 3+1/2' round marble playing matt out of leftover carpet which I marked with two (12"&18") concentric center rings like a doughnut, and brought it to an afternoon family barbeque along with several bags of marbles. I called it Poison Doughnut, the rules were fairly simple but did require...

  10. Size of Shooters

    Hey my first post here. I wanted to get some feedback on the size of shooters that come with most of the nets from mega marbles. They are all 1", but from what I have read the tournament size for a shooter is 3/4 or less. Is a larger marble easier to shoot with and what do most people shoot...

  12. Real kids! How many marbles would go in the ring?

    Thinking about the 13 marbles in the circle in the tournament rules for ringer, it suddenly seems unlikely that real kids playing in the vacant lot would use 13 marbles. Wouldn't they all have put in an equal number? Better to end up with a tie, right?, than to make kids decide who was...
