The National Tournament Gamee
Ringer is the official national
marbles tournament game. Although the rules of Ringer were not set down
until 1922 the entire idea of Ringer comes from one of the oldest marble
Ringer is a game that is played in a ring ten feet in diameter with a pitch line outside of the ring (you can decide how faraway the taw line is from the ring.) Then you set up thirteen marbles in the shape of an X with the center marble of the X in the center of the ring. The marbles in the X are spaced three inches apart. The aim of the game is to knuckle down from behind the taw line and try to shoot the kimmies out side the ring with out letting your shooter go outside the ring. ( Your turn ends when you miss.) The person who shoots the most kimmies out of the ring wins.
You decide to see who goes first by doing a little thing called lagging. The person who wins the lag goes first. Also in this game you might want a referee to determine if your breaking the rules of the game and a score keeper to... keep score.
