Civilizations from the ancient Egyptians to the Aztecs and early Native Americans in this country all played the game. It is even thought cavemen may have played it using small pebbles or balls of clay.
We're talking about marbles.
Today the game is being re-introduced to a new generation of players...and we found some who are, of course, absolutely Alabama.
The Jefferson County Knucklers have a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/JeffersonCountyKnucklers.
For more info, email David Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (205) 281-9839.
Tune in to Absolutely Alabama tonight at 6 p.m. to find out more about the Jefferson County Knucklers and how they're spreading the love of marbles to the next generation.
