Choose one of two games, the more common 32 marble puzzle or the 36 marble game. The object of the game is to destroy as many marbles as you can by jumping over them. To jump, click on one marble and then in an empty space on the other side of the marble you want to destroy, either vertically or horizontally. The game is over when you can't move or only one marble is left. Click the Quick Help button on the screen to get basic instructions of how to play.
There is a method by which you can solve this game and be left with the one marble but it is very difficult and you would normally have to be told the solution by someone who has been given the solution before. That is the reason for the high score table, so that it is not necessary to complete the game to enjoy it, as you can at least try to get on the high score table. For every marble you destroy you are awarded 100 points which are displayed in the top left corner of the board. If you complete the game then you are given a score of 10,000 points.
When you can no longer move on the board then click the High Scores button at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to the opening screen where you will be asked your name if your score is high enough to be added to the table.
