A boy playing marbles at federal capital in Islamabad.
Marbles are often mentioned in Roman literature, and there are many examples of marbles from ancient Egypt. They were commonly made of clay, stone or glass.
Ceramic marbles entered inexpensive mass production in the 1870s.
Glass marbles were invented around 1848 in Germany, and entered mass production in the early 20th century when World War I cut off their importation from Europe, causing American industry to be applied to the task, producing a mechanized method of glass marble production which became the most common system in the world. Glass marbles, too, became the most popular variety, and have remained so to this day. In some developing countries, children use steel minerals or large rocks as a less pricey marble substitute. One version of the game involves drawing a circle in sand, and players will take turns knocking other players’ marbles out of the circle with their own marble. This game is called ringer. Other versions involve shooting marbles at target marbles or into holes in the ground. A larger-scale game of marbles might involve taking turns trying to hit an opponent’s marble to win.
A useful strategy is to throw a marble so that it lands in a protected or difficult location if it should miss the target. As with many children’s games, new rules are devised all the time, and each group is likely to have its own version, often customized to the environment.

A boy hits 'gilli' with a 'danda' in Sector F-11 of Islamabad. 'Gilli-Danda' is a popular sport in this part of the world.The objective of the sport is to use the 'danda' (used like a baseball bat) to strike the 'gilli' (similar to striking a ball in cricket or baseball). For this purpose a circle is made in the centre of which a small oblong shaped hole is dug. This hole is smaller than the 'gilli' but as the play progresses the size may increase due to usage. The 'gilli' is inserted into a spindle shaped hole (overall shape looks like a traditional boat) in the ground, either orthogonally, or at an angle. The 'danda' is then swung and strikes the 'gilli' (similar to a golf swing). Another variation is when the 'gilli' is prised out of the hole at a high speed usually by lifting the 'gilli' using the 'danda'.The 'gilli' becomes airborne after it is struck. If a fielder from the opposing team catches the 'gilli,' the striker is out. If the 'gilli' lands on the ground, the fielder closest to the 'gilli' has one chance to hit the danda (which has to be placed on top of the hole used) with a throw (similar to a run out in cricket). If the fielder is successful, the striker is out, if not, the striker scores one score and gets another opportunity to strike. The team (or individual) with the most points wins the game. If the striker fails to hit gilli in three tries, the striker is out (similar to a strikeout in baseball). -- IMRAN
