A 30-pound brass bell has been awarded to the winner of this game since 1937, although the series dates back to Oct. 23, 1909. Nine miles of farm fields separate Brookfield and Marceline, but the entire area nearly rioted in 2004 when the Bell Game was temporarily canceled because of a scheduling snafu created when Marceline dropped down a classification, meaning it could no longer meet Brookfield in the districts. The issue consumed both towns for seven weeks until the Tri-Rivers Conference voted to allow Brookfield out of a league game, giving it a date to play a non-conference game against Marceline.
