But pitting cutesy monsters against each other, that's serious business.

I've seen that game referenced, but I'm not actually familiar with it. What's it called?

@Scia: In my region of the United States it's called jacks, although it seems to be known as knucklebones or fivestones elsewhere (or in different historical periods). There are several ways to play, but the one I'm familiar with is to bounce a ball and see how many jacks you can pick up before the ball hits the ground again. You start by picking up one jack, and pick up more and more during each round. This is called "onesies", "twosies", etc.

... Also the jacks are really fun to set on their sharp edges and spin on hard surfaces!

@Surfersquid: Spinning jacks is the only way I ever used them, lol

@Nashew: Yeah, that's always how I played with them as a kid, too. The metal ones work best for that.

@Surfersquid: Ah. Well I'd heard about Jacks, but I guess I never learned how to play. XD

(Come to think, I don't think I learned Marbles, either... Or a number of other games. I kinda feel like I missed out.)

@Scia: I don't think a lot of people these days know how to play those. I just learned from my parents.

It's never too late to start, though!

@Scia: Now that I think about ARE marbles played? I had a sack of pokemon marbles as a kid. 8P

@Sanji: The point of marbles is to use one larger marble to try to knock other marbles out of a circle on the ground. If you're playing for "keepsies", you get to keep whatever marbles you knock out.

@Surfersquid: Oh that sounds familiar! Thanks.
