Gruesome Game:

Glass marbles were made and were very popular in the 1860s and 1870s. One game people used to play was called ‘Capture’, between two players.

-Player A rolls a marble along the ground.

-Player B rolls a marble and tries to hit it.

-If B’s marble hits A’s then B takes or ‘captures’ the marble.

-If B misses then the marble stays where it is and A tries to hit it.

-A and B go on taking turns until one has captured all the other’s marbles.
