Marbles Game with Canvas Pouch
Made in USA - Pennsylvania
Knuckle Down and Don't Lose Your Marbles!
Marbles have been played since 2500 BCE and became popular in America during the 1890s and they're still made in USA!
Whether you play for keepsies or not playing marbles is classic fun.
In-game slang includes many phrases that have made it into the everyday lexicon. For example, to "knuckle down" means to put your hand in a position to shoot your marble, keeping at least one knuckle on the ground at all times. "Fudging" means you crossed the line on your shot, which is a minor form of cheating. If you're about to take an easy shot with your taw, you can say the marble you're aiming for is a "dead duck." Playing "for keeps" means that any competitor's marbles you knock out are added to your personal collection. Oddly enough, the origin of the phrase, "losing your marbles" can't definitively be traced back to the game of marbles. However, if you were to lose all your marbles in a "for keeps" game, you probably would go a little bit crazy.
