Game description

This is a marble game, originating in Germany. The objective is to roll or toss a marble into a hole. All you need is a smooth but hard surface so that the marble can roll into the hole. Each player has 3 marbles, which he has to get into the hole. However, in the end, only the last marble counts.


For this variation, you need to create a 2x2metres play field with several holes. Each hole receives a numeric value. The objective is to roll the marbles from the sidelines into the holes. Then sum up the overall score.


Each marble in the hole receives 1 point.
