Shagai can be played in several different ways. You can play them like marbles and flick one shagai to strike the others; you can roll them like dice and move forward depending on how many you roll; or you can play a game similar to jacks, throwing one shagai in the air and trying to grab as many others as you can and then catching the falling shagai before it hits the ground.
