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
which is a really superb resource identifying and awarding great family
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.
Murbles are proudly American-made with a focus on quality and
craftsmanship. Murbles are injection-molded 3-inch diameter solid,
high-density plastic balls that weigh ½ pound each. They are available in
20 popular colors, so players can customize their sets to match their
school colors, sports team or their favorite colors.
The standard game is made to be played by 2 players; however, larger sets
are available and additional balls may be purchased individually.
"Standard" play is 2 players with 3 balls each. "Activity" play is 3 or
more players with 2 balls each.
