    <misty eyed>

    I had a beautiful marble once. It had a metallic blue glaze, with a silver thread running through the middle. I loved that marble. I wouldn't have swapped it with anybody, not even for the 'big king' marbles the super-cool marble maestros played with. But it's lost now, I am bereft.

    I would swop you some of my inferior marbles though.

    Bonks? lol
    In my neck of the woods they were called ponks. Ordinary's weren't worth anything. If we got them we'd just throw them away.

    Ah those were the days.......

    bonks were the ones that were twice the size of ordinarys, but about 4 times the size of titches

    I had loads of marbles, my brother kept taking them to school & one day he lost the biggest one I had. Gutted.

    I was madly in love (as in love as one can be at the age of 9) with this boy in year 6 who was like the best in the playground at marbles.

    Christ, how sad.

    wow! so many people remember marbles. you'll be telling me next that they still make them.
    marbles aye... the things i could do now if i'd managed to hold on to the full set.
    they are beutifull yet such simple things. the less of them left...the simpler one gets...............

    Yeah. I still have loads of marbles. I didn't give any of them away.
    About 5 years ago i got a jar of really traditional marbles with a leaflet of how to play different games with them. They're really pretty.
    Can anyone remember pogs? i was so crap at playing, i used to lose all the time. I still have loads of them too actually. *is sad* :)

    I remember the marble craze! We called the twice-as-big ones "biggies" (i think), the ones twice as big as them were "Over-grownies", and then the massive ones were called "Over-overs" :p
