Abstract:
It’s a whole lot different from the game that the kids play and the old gentlemen of Franklinton have been enjoying it for a long time. Every Saturday in the road in front of the old hotel in Franklinton a group of retired men continue their 30 year old game of marbles. Unlike the version that the younger folks play, this game follows older rules and uses marbles that are not soled anymore, which are slightly smaller than billiard balls.
