czech_marblesNext contender for the World X Championship: marbles.

Since 2005, the Czech Marbles Federation has hosted the World Marbles Championships, whose growth has been hampered by the niggly fact that most countries don’t have a national marbles federation. 2009’s event just took place, supposedly, but no information about participants or results is up, yet.

Thus, they are now promoting the World Marbles Federation [?] (yes, the “[?]” is right there in the title on the web site) to encourage nations to form their own groups, so that they’ll have more people with which to compete.
