How to Play Marbles There are many, many, forms of the game of marbles. However, the most popular is called “Ringers.” • Place 13 marbles, or ducks, in an X-shape at the center of a circle, which is 10’ in diameter. • Each person then takes turns firing shooters at the marbles. • Each marble that is knocked out of the circle is worth 1 point. • Your turn is over once your shooter goes out of the area of play. • Once all 13 marbles have been knocked out of play, the marbles are then re-racked, and the next round begins. • The first person to SO points wins the game.
