- Games I play.To play marbles you must make three holes in the ground. The you must try to put the marble into the holes. If you will pink he first marble into the hole but if the second one will not go in you are out. Then the second boy will try. If he will hit the other boys marble with his own he will gain a hole. Two nuts are put into the fire to heat. One nut represents a boy and the other a girl. If the boys nut jumps away from the girls nut they are not to be married.
