Then the player take turns at hitting their marbles from outside of the circle aiming at any marbles inside the circle. Shooters have to kneel on the ground and flick your marble out of your fist with your thumb. Keep on playing until one of you misses hitting any of the marbles from the circle. Gather any marbles you can hit and move out of the circle. Let the next player shoot if you haven't knocked any marbles out and/or your shooter remains in the ring. Continue playing until the ring is empty. At the end of the game, the player with the most marbles is the winner.
