MARBLES

A relatively smooth playing field is required, usually on dirt. A small hole is made in the center of the playing
area.

Each player antes up a marble, and they are randomly scattered around the playing field.

Each player uses a large marble (called a shooter) to try to knock the other marbles into the hole (much like
pool)

Players take turns shooting, and if a player knocks a marble into the hole with his/her shot, they get to keep the
marble they knocked in and shoot again.

One variation is called "agate up" in which all the marbles donated must be agates. Agates a rarer and thus
more valuable type of marble.
