Cherokee marbles is a similar game to the rolley hole marbles played by Anglo-Americans in Kentucky and Tennessee, though the dimensions are different and rolley hole uses three holes instead of five.
There is an official rulebook which is used in tournament play. It is played on a field about 100 feet in length, and with five holes. A player must advance to each hole, knocking other players' marbles out in a prescribed manner, and return again.
