Game description

Before the game begins, draw a circle on the floor. This can be any size. However, you should take into account the skill level of the participants because the bigger the circle, the harder the game. In the centre of the circle put as much as possible marbles in a pile. There should at least be 40-50 marbles to make for a long game. Once this is done, the kids decide in which order they want to play. Now the game can begin. The first player flicks the bigger marble towards the pile of smaller marble. The player can keep all the marbles which roll outside the circle, and the bigger marble is passed on to the next player. The game is finished, as soon as there is no marble left in the circle.


The winner is the player who scored the most marbles
