Dirty Marbles is a Puzzle Games.The object of Dirty Marbles is to get all four of your marbles around the game board clockwise and into your respective goal, using the two dice. You first move one of your own marbles(by clicking on it)the distance indicated on the first die, then use the second die on the same marble or a different marble. You may also opt to move the wild marble instead. However, to get out of your home, you need either a 1 or a 6, so it’s often necessary to skip a turn or two near the beginning. There are two ways to take shortcuts in this game: one is to go in the middle space by rolling the exact number to land there, then clicking the" go into middle" checkbox and then you marble. However, you must be careful because you can only get out of the middle space on a 1.The other is to use a 4 to trade locations with another player or the wild marble. Simply click" use a 4 to trade" and click your marble and you will be prompted to click someone else’s marble. You will then trade locations. Be careful, though, once you click your marble, you must trade. Now for the most important part...you can kill an opponent’s marble by landing on it, sending it back to home location. The top portion should be self exp; enter your name in the box if you’re offended by being called" Blue Player "or" Red Player", and set each player to human, computer or none. Keep in mind though, the computer players are pretty dumb and easy to beat.(I’ll make improvements in the future.)It’s best to play against humans. You can select any combination of human, computer, or none, as long as there is at least one human. At the bottom, of course, you already found the instructions menu, and" Can’t Jump Self" checkbox turns on and off the rule that says you can’t jump your own marble, which makes things a little more difficult. And of course, "Kill Fest Mode" is a different way to play where there are no goals, only a kill and death count and the game is called after the specified number of rounds. But however you play the game, remember to have fun and most importantly, play dirty.
