Giant Marbles

Supersize those marbles by replacing those tiny game pieces with a variety of balls that take the game from finger play to hand held fun.

Recommended Number of Players: 2 to many players.

Ages: 5 to adult.  

Supplies: A variety of balls in different sizes, and a level playing area.  

Set Up:  Set up your giant marble game to fit with the type of marble game you wish to play.  

How to Play:  There are a number of ways to play marbles, the trick with giant marbles is to play 'friendlies' meaning that the balls remain part of the game so everyone can enjoy the activity.  The second rule for gaint marbles is to outline the rules of the game you are playing before you begin playing so everyone is playing the same game.  

Adapt By:  Add a bit of summer fun to the game by playing with water balloons, the game will not last as long, but a fun time by all players is guaranteed.
