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.


Design Notes

  1. The board layout comes from an early group discussion between James Kyle and ChrisYoung. See piecepack Mailing list message #9.
  2. 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.
  3. This game turns out to be much more difficult to play than regular Nine-ball.
