Tips for Playing Marbles
It is important to agree on the rules when you play marbles, so nobody accuses you of cheating. If you want to "play for keeps", then you should talk about it at first and agree that the winner gets to keep some marbles. Playing keepsies is fun until you loose your favorite marble!
Knuckle Down - Get down on your knees,put a marble in your first finger and flick it out with your thumb.
Keepsies - you keep marbles that you win
Friendlies - you get all of your marbles back at the end of the game.
Any kid who ever had a collection of marbles has favorite marbles. If you are willing to risk your marbles in a game of keepsies, you had better either be a good shooter, or be a good sport.
