Marbles

Players draw a wide circle on the ground and place 13 “target” marbles in a cross formation at the center. Each player then takes turns flicking a “shooter” marble, characterized by its larger size, at the target marbles to knock them out of the circle. Play continues, with each person shooting again each time he/she successfully knocks a marble out of the ring, until one person hits a majority of the 13 marbles out of the circle.
