The Snowballs also took part as they were the hosts of MarbleLympics 2018. This competition was put on to give these teams some practice before the main games.

Event 1: 5 Meter Ice DashEdit


The first event of the MarbleLympics 2018 Friendly Round, the 5 Meter Ice Dash, was held on the 20th of January 2018.

EventEdit

The 5 Meter Ice Dash is a racing event similar to the 5 Meter Sprint, the difference being the course is made of smooth plastic with no barriers between the marbles, causing an effect similar to slipping on ice. The fastest marble down the track is the winner.

Event 2: CurlingEdit


The second event of the MarbleLympics 2018 Friendly Round, Curling, was held on the 20th of January 2018.

EventEdit

In curling, one marble from each team rolls down an ice sheet towards the house, a target on the ice where the different rings equate to different point values. The closer you are to the center, the more points you earn. Then one marble from the opposing team rolls towards the house. Each team will send one marble in turn until all four of their team's marbles have been sent. The team with the highest score wins the match and advances to the next round. If there is a tie, the winner is decided by which team is closest to the button.

Event 3: HalfpipeEdit


The third and final event of the MarbleLympics 2018 Friendly Round, the Halfpipe, was held on the 20th of January 2018.

EventEdit

The halfpipe features a whole marble team rolling down a halfpipe. All four marbles on 2 teams roll down a chute onto the halfpipe and try to stay rolling for as long as possible while slowly making their way towards the bottom of the halfpipe. The time for the slowest three marbles across the line are added together to give the team their score. The results from each group are combined and the slowest team across the finish line wins.
