This is an adaptation of the billiards game Nine Ball as a piecepack coin FlickingGame.
This game requires a smooth seamless playing surface about 18x36 inches.
The rules text is under the GNU FDL version 1.2. This license fails to make the work free culture because:
- it imposes the requirement to include the full text of the FDL in every redistributed copy of the work
- The board layout comes from an early group discussion between James Kyle and ChrisYoung?. See piecepack Mailing list message #9.
- Banked shots knocked the board tiles out of place too easily, so I added the rules about holding the tiles down to provide a solid bumper to bank the cue-ball.
- This game turns out to be much more difficult to play than regular Nine-ball.
