Four Minute Marble Race Through 750-Foot Sand Course

March 1, 2016

This is the 750-foot long marble race constructed by marble lover Jelle Bakker. It takes over four minutes for the twelve marble contestants to complete the course. You get to pick a marble at the beginning and root for it for the next four minutes. Did your marble win? My marble did not win. Turns out I picked a rock. If anybody does pick the winning marble from the very beginning though I will give you a special prize. We're working on the honor system though so you better not lie. If you're lying, you're dying. Don't believe me? Ask my roommate. "Helllllllp me." Stop being such a baby, the ambulance should be here any minute.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Joseph A, who just inspired me to blow 20 minutes playing Marble Madness on a web-based emulator.

    did anyone else get sick from the shaky cam? i've got the perpetual motion feeling right now -barf- and Yellow was god-awful.

    God damn it purple!
    Why did I bet so much money on this!

  • BeastmanAIDS

    I actually said "wooooo!" when the blue one took the short cut.

  • Jenness

    This was way more exciting than I would have imagined. I picked the clear swirly one and she just tried her best but in the one was out-glassed. heh

    Looks like the white was too over confident and let it's guard down, to allow the red to pass, then at the end it just gave into the whole white privilege hype and slowed down to let the black one almost tie it. Hashtag:BalckMarblesMatter

    I think red was doped, no way she could jump in first place like that without some help.

  • MinjaMike

    I agree.....because I chose white from the start.

  • JimmyJam

    I'm going with the green and black swirly one.

  • JimmyJam

    Aaaaaaaaaand "lime" loses in spectacular fashion.

  • ODwanKenObi

  • craig37f .

  • Chris Leyva

    I was bored after 30 seconds but for some reason kept watching and found the marble I picked caught the lead and found myself too excited...

  • Elan114
