How do you play the game of marbles?
How to Play Marbles:
- Draw a circle 3 feet (90cm) wide on a pavement in chalk, or make one out of string if you're playing indoors on carpet.
- Choose your shooter marble- this should be bigger than any of your other marbles.
- Put 5 to 10 other marbles in the centre of the ring to play.
Various names refer to the marbles' size. Any marble larger than the majority may be termed a boulder, bonker, masher, plumper, popper, shooter, thumper, smasher, taw, bumbo, crock, bumboozer, bowler, tonk, tronk, godfather, tom bowler, fourer, giant, dobber, dobbert, hogger, biggie or toebreaker.
- Shooter marbles usually range between 17 - 18.5mm. Also called the "Boss" or "Taw", the shooter marble is used to play Ringer and other marble games.
- Because spheres don't have any edges or faces, they're stronger than something like a windowpane or a drinking glass. Scientists are still researching. But in the end, marbles aren't indestructible: marbles can, and do, break if you throw them hard enough!

Types of Marble Tile: How are They Different?
- Carrara marble tile. This is generally white, gray or blue-gray and commonly used in sculpture and building decor.
- Statuary marble tile.
- Calacatta marble tile.
- Emperador marble tile.
- Crema marfil marble tile.
- Hardness and Durability: Granite is harder than marble, so it is more resistant to chips and scratches. Both marble and granite countertops are quite durable, but ONLY if they are properly sealed every one or two years. Granite and marble are porous, so without a seal, liquids will penetrate and stain.
- Granite is an intrusive igneous rock with large grains (minerals) easily seen by the naked eye. Granite colors are most commonly pink, white, variations of grey and black.
- Marble description: The Botticino Classico is a classical beige colored natural stone with some light spots. Technical Data: Slabs of natural stone for outdoor paving. This marble is resistant to freezing and bending. Production: Slabs of natural stone, marble blocks, marble tiles.
The Akro Agate Company was formed in 1910 in Akron, Ohio. By the time the company had moved to Clarksburg, it was operating its own marble making machinery and producing marbles.Throughout most of the history of the company, Akro Agate was the largest manufacturer of marbles in the United States.
- Hot pots can be placed directly on the countertop, you can cut right on the surface without damage, and spills wipe away easily. Like granite, marble is very strong and resistant to damage. However, it is much more porous and will stain easier than granite.
- Granite will take a hot pot while quartz is less resistant to high heat. Cons: Quartz is a manufactured stone and it is hard to duplicate the veining and pattern look you get from genuine marble or granite. Quartz is approximately 20% to 40% more expensive than granite.
- Granite is resistant to heat, but that doesn't mean you can directly put your hot pans on the worktops. Impact of a heavy object may break your granite but little heat will not affect granite much. A little crack can cost you a heavy replacement, so it is recommended to use trivets to hold the hot pans.
