The Mibsters Documentary is all about the fascinating world of competitive teenage marble playing (a competitive marble player is referred to as a Mibster). This captivating idea for a documentary is currently seeking funding on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform. The doc hit its goal, but if you're interested in donating to its production, they have some interesting gifts available for donators.

What I personally like about the concept of the Mibsters Documentary is that it places kids within a highly competitive environment and forces them to excel. The doc seems to be drawing on the success of the movie Spellbound, where pre-teens compete to be the best speller.

The Mibsters Documentary is also an excellent idea because prior to reading about it, I never would have thought that marbles were played competitively.
