School recess playtime (in the dirt) was the opportunity to play/shoot, trade, swap, win and increase or lose your stash of marbles; if the teachers did not confiscate them first?

In those long ago days .........

So what type marble competition did you guys mostly have; "ring" or "pot"?

Ring---and I have a whole jar full of ones I have taken out of black spray paint cans to replace the ones I keep losing.

In October, my seven year old son learned of the existence of this game and wanted me to teach him how to play it. It floored me that I hadn't taught him already. Would you believe that it took me three weeks to find a local store that had a bag of marbles to sell? The clerk at Toys-R-Us looked at us like we were from outer space when we asked which aisle to find them in. She suggested an antique store!

Not sure I remember how to play, do you draw a circle in the dirt, each player anti up one marble and take turns trying to shoot them out with another marble? Knock one out and you get to keep it? knock one out and get another turn too?

We played something like that with tops too, very brutal game trying to split the other players tops by spiking yours into it.

Hello Jeff:
Were those tops the ones you rapped a string around and flung it out to launch? They had a steel tip, didn't they?

I was better with Yo-Yo's

What I remember most about playing marbles is that my jeans would get so dirty they could walk to the corner of my room by themselves....

We used to call the big ones "Gollies". I think I still have some somewhere. My kids never got into it, really. And I think my Dad was probably more into them than I was. Guess it's one of those things that will one day be a thing of the past.

There were some clay ones made in China, were tan in color with a red or blue stripe around them and a light gleze. I think they were 10 for a nickle. Many were not perfectly round as though they'd been rolled by hand. Don't remember what we called them, Maybe "cheapies". John

John, we called them "clays" and a good shooter could shatter them.
