Nevertheless, before I go on, I find myself having to share this video with you. The hand-made marbles are exquisite, but I was struck by the mechanized marble production. Early in the process, the molten glass is cut and little blobs of glass fall into the interlocking grooves of long, cast iron screws. The blobs cool until they are recognizably glass marbles which then roll down through the chutes of sorting device: part Rube Goldberg and part Dr. Seuss. The machine makes thousands at a time. All those marbles. Where do they go?
Perhaps Stomple is their ultimate destination and purpose - a unique strategy game that pits 2 to 6 players against each other as the players stomp marbles off the playing board in order to trap their opponents.
The game consists of 49 marbles (7 different colors), 6 stompers (playing pieces shaped like a pawn with a marble on top), and the playing board. The board is what makes the game possible. Lots of marble games rely on rolling the marbles, but Stomple must hold them in place until a player can stomp them out of play. The marbles are randomly spread across the board. The board consists of a wooden box with a wooden lid. The lid is perforated by a grid of 49 holes, but the marbles don't fall through the holes because there is a rubbery ring that cradles each marble in each hole. The marble doesn't fall through the hole unless someone punches it down with one of the stomper pieces.Read more ›
It only takes a couple of minutes to learn the basics, but there is a strategy to it. Seven sets of colored marbles are placed randomly on a raised board. Each player pulls a Stomple out of a pouch and their color is the one on the top of the Stomple. Starting from the outside of the board you proceed to stomp out other players' marbles so that your color marble is the last one left. Each turn you can choose a different color to stomp on (as long as it is next to your Stomple), but you must continue stomping as long as that color is adjacent to the space you are on. You can jump to another part of the board if you get stuck, but only to your own color which reduces the amount of your marbles.
The board is made up of two pieces. The wooden bottom tray can hold all the marbles and the Stomples when the game isn't in use and catches the marbles as you stomp them. The top wooden piece has holes in it and is backed in foam so that the marbles can be held in place but still be easily pushed through by the Stomple. I was afraid that the foam would no longer hold the marbles up over time, but I have not found that to be the case. The game has taken a lot of abuse in the hands of my three sons and their friends, and it is still in one piece. BTW, the game uses standard sized marbles so you could replace them easily if any were to get lost.Read more ›
All that being said, I did not pay $75 for it like it is listed at right now and I would never recommend it at that price point. I think I paid $20, but up to $30 would be a decent price.
