: : : What is the meaning of lose all your marbles with me?
: : : Does it have anything to do with lost your marbles?

: : I have never had anyone say that to me. (I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.) I would take it to mean "let's go crazy together." It reminds me of a line from Beetlejuice: "I'm going crazy and taking you with me."

: I think it means that you are in for a bad time hanging around with me.
: like gambling with a cumpuslive gambler.

More context in the original query would make this question easier to settle. "Come on, baby, lose all your marbles with me"? Or "Watch out, Buster, you might lose all your marbles with me"? We don't have enough to work with.
