Description

Marbles – A typical game of marbles for children is a simple circle drawn in the dirt or with chalk. A few marbles from every player are placed in the center of the circle. Using larger marbles, called shooters, each player attempts to knock a marble out of the circle. Whatever marbles are knocked out are kept by the player who knocked it out. Whoever ends up with the most marbles at the end wins.

Resources

about 2 dozen small sized marbles
4 large size "shooter" marbles
