Anyone else psyched for the 2019 season of sand marble rally?


It's the exciting uhh..sport..that you didn't know existed and you probably wish you didn't. Talk about hours of addictive timewaster!



You actually watch this?

Why, yes I do!

It gives me something to look forward to in between Marblelympic years.



I can't help but laugh at how much professionalism and love the commentator has for these videos

For some strange reason, I thought this was going to be about a marble rolling pin that we used when making pasty crusts this afternoon, the daughters stepdaughter helped me make pasties, she used the marble rolling pin. I used the maple one.

Will there be wagering? If so will it be Parimutual or bookmakers. Trifecta anyone?

I realize the Olympics are supposed to be amateur but with all the doping , steroids and performance enhancing drugs, who knows. There are some nasty rumors about the Chinese marbles.

I think the GOT writers used this method to pen the final season...

Bahaha! This is a thing? I love the look of marbles, but would just want to look at them and not play a game with them. Interesting.

My sister just gave my grandsons marbles for Christmas. I'm thinking they would love to try this!

When I was young, I used to play marbles at school, they actually had courts set up so many kids could play. So, the different types of marbles had different values, like puries and boulders, and steelies. Even the more shiny detailed marbles were more valuable, because girls liked puries and the really nice marbles. So I used to give some of my best marbles to girls, who never even played marbles. That is why I haven't got all my marbles to this day.

I changed to playing cards later on, girls were not attracted to cards, that allowed me to be playing with a full deck most of my life.

I've watched a variety of these vids lately and it seems you can set up a 'marble run' out of all kinds of materials just lying around if you get creative.

I'm a grown adult and it still seems entertaining to me
