Troll My Dame is a marble game which you play with targets. It is one of the games which we know children played at Plimoth, the early English settlement in North America.
In the picture above, from Kate Waters book, "Sarah Morton's Day," Sarah and her friend Elizabeth play the game between chores. In those days marbles were usually made of clay, and were called "knickers." Sarah calls this toy her knicker box.
We made our own Troll My Dame game from corrugated cardboard which I watercolored. I made the targets wide so that it wouldn't be too difficult for eight year olds, and I put the higher numbers on the outside edge, since if the marble misses, it will roll away. In this picture you can see some reproduction "knickers" from Plimoth Plantation, a living history museum. My son and some of the other children at school loved shooting the marbles they made from modelling dough at the targets. It's fun to compete with a friend.
