There are a few general rules: Marbles are usually on public property, and if they aren’t, it must be specified otherwise in the Facebook post. Once active, hunters must eventually hide their own marbles to keep the game going. Hiding spots must not damage any vegetation or wildlife, and those hiding the marbles must check on the marble every so often to ensure it’s still there (sometimes marbles are discovered by those not associated with the group). Happy hunting!
How Buddy Fay Got Into Marble Hunting and Making
When Buddy Fay isn’t taking care of his 2-year-old son, he’s spending time outdoors or exercising his creativity. Like most others, he was introduced to marble hunting through word-of-mouth. After a friend introduced him to the hobby three years ago, he was hooked. Though he loved hunting, he was intrigued by the glass marbles. “[The] same friend that showed me the marble club also learned how to make marbles,” Fay says. “So when he introduced me to the marble club, he also introduced me to his torch and it was less than a month later when I had my own torch and my own setup and was learning how to make them.”
