The word 'marbles' has had many meanings throughout history. Marbles are generally known as the little glass balls that children use to play a game. From the mid 19th century, 'marbles' was also used to mean 'personal effects', 'goods', or more generally 'stuff'. This derived from the French word 'meubles', which means 'furniture'. Therefore, to lose one's marbles means "to lose your stuff," or, idomatically, to lose one's mind.

Number of possibilities for one category / Total of all possibilities. For example, if I had a bag of marbles where there are three white marbles and two black marbles. The probability of pulling out a white marble is how many white marbles are in the bag which is: three. But the total of things you can draw out of the bag can either be one of the three white marbles or one of the two black marbles. 3 white marbles+ 2 Black marbles= five marbles. Possibility is 3/5 for drawing a white marble.

Before you start the marbles tournament, you have to decide if you want the game to be a "keep it" game or not. If you want to play a "keep it" game, that means whoever wins gets all of the marbles that they knocked out. Now the rules of the game are simple: 1) Don't step in the ring. If you do, you are automatically disqualified. 2) Get all of the marbles out of the ring. 3) If you get marbles out of the ring on your turn, then you get to go another turn after yours. This keeps on happening if you keep getting marbles out of the ring. Those are the basic rules, but if you need more information, check out this website: [See related link "Marbles" below]

An idiom is a phrase that makes no sense unless you know the idiomatic definition. Can someone really lose his marbles? Yes, but does it make sense if someone says "He's lost his marbles" when someone says something crazy? No, so this can be either an idiom or an actual phrase. Someone could really misplace their marbles (toys), or they could be mentally unbalanced, in which case the idiom meaning would be used.
