Lambs In The Pit


Recommended Posts

Here's a game I've shown before. It was released just in time for the 4th of July in 1891 - only ~25 years after the Civil War ended. It was missing the 'cue' and marbles. I have not seen another like it. The object is to use the cue to move the four balls up out of the pit and into the four corner 'pockets'. I think the cue was just a short little stick. It might have rested in opposing pockets for storage. It's fun and a bit harder than you might think, since the conical shape of the pit keeps the mibs running away from you.
