Made right here in Bishop Hill by BHHA volunteers! Clay marbles are the only evidence of a “toy” found from Bishop Hill Colony era. There are variations on the basic rules of marbles. The standard game is called the “ring game” or “ringer.” The goal is to remove all the marbles from inside a ring drawn or a string made into a ring, on the playing surface by flicking your shooter marble. Players get to keep the marbles they knock out.
