Super Ball 2022 – Prizes
The year’s fastest marble competition has GOT to have some fun prizes, right? Right. The Super Ball 2022 prizes will reward players not only for finishing in the top spots, but also for improving their own times, excelling in specific chapters, and for conquering a set of mystery levels. I’m a particular fan of the first prize award!

$10 to the fastest chapter time in each race.

– Gearing Up –
As we take one last, wistful look at the nice and clean RTA speedrun leaderboard, it’s hard to ignore the incredible push to expend the field of runners since the game’s launch – and over the last year+ especially!
We’ve seen relatively recent world record changes, but an awesome increase in personal best times being posted. PBs improving as recently as TODAY?! Talk about an exciting series of runs. And expect to see a fresh new set of PBs in the leaderboard after this weekend!
We’re pumped to see the brain-busting talent showcase tomorrow and celebrate the passion and determination of the community. Best of luck to everybody in the Super Ball 2022 Open and Invitational!
Wishes of PBs to all from the Marble team!
