How to Play Marbles (an introduction)

Marbles is a great game to play either inside or outside. When we played, we played for keepsies – meaning that you got to keep the other players marbles that you acquired at the end of the game. This is risky if you have a prized collection of unique marbles.

There are many varieties of marble play and rules vary from game to game. As always with childhood play, the best rules are those that you create – not the ones that you obey.

However you play, marbles is a great way to spend a few hours with family or friends.
