    Re: Do you play marbles?

    Yeah, there are. I don't know details off the top of my head though. Read the article archive:

    http://www.landofmarbles.com/archive/index.php

    I'm pretty sure I archived an article or 2 re: that. I try not to articles that are about recurring annual events lest it get filled up with redundant info, but I think I added 1 or 2 just to document the occurance.

    I know there is one in England & 1 or 2 on the US too. Not too serious though. It's kind of done in fun, a kid's game played by adults, so lots of goofing, drinking...

    Yea! I love that song. I just like the Kentucky Headhunters in general! Anyone who sings about shooting marbles will work for me

    Re: Do you play marbles?

    In fact heres the only five I could find that mentions marbles in the lyrics. Several of them had it in the name, but none of them mentioned it in the song.

    Tindersticks_-_Marbles
    Ween_-_Happy Colored Marbles
    Pop Eckler_-_Money, Marbles, and Chalk
    The Troggs_-_Marbles and Some Gum
    Phish_-_Pebbles and Marbles

    Re: Do you play marbles?

    Played a lot when I was a kid. Taught how to play by my Mom. I'm 42 now and teaching my kids how to play and starting a marble club at their school. Ethan is 8 and Eliott is 5. Oh, and we live in Las Vegas... Anyone else here from the 702?

    This is a cool forum. Looking forward to spending some time here.

    Hi Steven. I don't know what the 702 is, but there are a number of collectors out West. They have a marble show in Vegas. I think it's almost a year until the next Vegas show, but its something to look forward to if you don't meet anyone else in the meantime.

    Sorry, the 702 is our area code... I plan on attending the next show with kids when it rolls around...

    I'm looking mostly for people with kids who would be interested in getting together and playing.

    Re: Do you play marbles?

    Just started to play marbles last month with my 6yr son. It has been a real joy to introduce my son to a "old school" game.
