It all started back in 1979 when
Murray Kramer played horseshoes with a retired gentleman who lived next door.
For two years, Murray tried to win a game of shoes, but he couldn’t…. so he
decided to make his own game, a game that anyone could play and WIN!!!
In 2014 Murbles was awarded the Major Fun Award from MajorFun.com which is a really superb resource identifying and awarding great family games.
His game is loosely based on the ancient European game called Bocce. “Murbles”
(Murray’s marbles) however, are sized right, lighter, more dynamic, exciting
and made for the whole family to play. Murbles do not require any flat
dedicated playing court or set-up, so the game can be played almost anywhere.
Just dump and play. It’s just that easy.
When playing Murbles, speed, agility
and even skill are not required assets. Instead, the players determine the pace
and distance the game is played. This makes it an ideal game for kids, teens,
adults and grandparents alike. Murbles come in a heavy duty canvas carrying bag
with the game rules conveniently printed right on the back of the bag.
Murbles are a perfect game for
family reunions, picnics, camping, the beach, tailgating or just hanging out in
the back yard.
