Three boys had each a bag of marbles. A had 6 marbles, B had 7 marbles and C had 11 marbles. They decided to play a new kind of game. They decided to exchange marbles according to the following rule: each boy each boy as many marbles as he already had. After playing a couple of rounds all had in the end exactly 8 marbles. Which is the lowest amount of rounds that the marbles will have switched owner?
