Have you played the marble balls during your youth days?

This is one of my most favorite games when we have time to play with my school mates and neighbors alike.The game started when I started to dig a small hole in the ground soil floor,then we draw a line,to let anyone participating that the game is about to begin.All participants should throw their marble balls to the line.Whoever lands first with in the line or over it is the first to play the game, until all have played the starter.The losers should put their marble balls to the designated drawn square line, so that the winner could strike his marble balls against the group of balls.The balls that are hit are the prize of the winner,then the game starts again.This is a very sweaty game,as it involved sitting while playing and lots of thinking how to win the game.

Oh, yes, I've also played marbles in my childhood, and I had good aim at that, even hitting an opponent's marble two holes away. We played only when we're at home. We weren't allowed to play it in school :(

That is correct my friend that we are not allowed to play it in school,and in spite of the prohibition,we still manage to play some good games there.In my neighborhood,almost all my friends like to play the game with me because I have a lot of marble balls to to let them win.The marble balls are all won from previous games I attended and the joy of playing it is very entertaining during my younger years.
