Marble is a Nintendo toy released sometime in the sixties. Initially released by Milton Bradley in the United States as the Skill-it: The Frying Pan Maze, Nintendo manage to receive the license to manufacture it in Japan for 300 yen. Two colors, red and blue, were released.
As the American name suggests, the toy is in the shape of a frying pan, and in the frying pan is a maze. As the Japanese name suggests, the means the players uses to get through the maze is a marble. They must place the marble in the very center of the frying pan and attempt to get it to the handle. The twelve different possibilities can be created by moving the handle around the "frying pan".
The American game (not Nintendo) to give an example of what the blue variation looked like.
