Bounce Eye

Materials

  • Chalk
  • Marbles

Directions

  1. This game requires two or more players.
  2. Draw a circle about one foot in diameter.
  3. Have each player scatter an equal number of marbles inside the circle.
  4. The first player stands outside the circle.
  5. Holding a marble with an outstretched arm at eye level, he drops it into the circle.
  6. If his marble knocks any marbles out of the circle, his marble plus the marbles he knocked out belong to him.
  7. If he fails to knock any marbles out of the circle, his marble stays with the other marbles inside the circle.
  8. Players take turns trying to knock marbles out of the circle until there are no marbles left in the circle.
  9. At that point, the player with the most marbles is the winner.
