Ring Men


Recommended Posts

Found a hit on ring men! Woot woot!

Described as golf ball sized marbles ---

(Also saw reference to a game called "ring-men" but didn't see enough details to post.)

This is from 1966 talking about the Blue Eye game, played a lot 20 years before in Blue Eye, Missouri.

Was the giant marble in the middle a rock marble? :blink:

How would they have gotten that one out?

I'll continue to keep my eyes out for what the uses of the giant clays might have been. Whether industrial or play.

Ring Men . . . very interesting. From the article description and the name "ring man" it sounds like the ring men might form a circle surrounding the "prize" (winning) marble. I imagine it would be challenging to shoot a 1" ring man out of the playing area with a smaller shooter and I wonder if there was a foul if the "prize" marble was hit while you were trying to remove the ring men. So many questions . . . very interesting, Steph. I second Al's sentiments . . . thanks for posting it!
