If he is a good marksman and knocks a marble out of the ring he shoots again from the spot where his taw or shooter rests and so continues to shoot until he makes a miss, pocketing all the ducks he knocks out. When he has failed to hit and knock out a marble, his turn is over and he must allow his shooter to lie where j’ rolled. FIG.

Histing is not allowable in the Bull Ring or in Meg-on-a-String. Roundsters means taking a new position on one side or the other of some obstruction. This is not fair in Bull Ring. Sidings means to move your taw from one side to the other in a straight line when about to shoot, and is not allowable in Bull Ring. Burying is the term applied to the act of placing your taw in a good spot and then forcing it into the ground with the heel of your shoe. Burying is sometimes allowed in all games of marbles, but only by unskilled players; with the others “Fen buryings” is the unwritten rule of the game.

Laying in ” also means placing the marbles in the ring. Clearances means removing stones, sticks, or other objects between your taw and the ducks. Sneaking is the act of shooting for a position. Babying is shooting with little force, so as not to knock the ducks far or to cause your taw to fly far. Babying is not of much use in large rings, but is often resorted to in small rings and in such games as Follerings. There is no rule that can make you stop babying, so the other players always try ridicule.
