- It is a hybrid game that combines pool and soccer together, by replacing pool balls with soccer balls and the pool cue with a pair of shoes.
- Originated from France
- Played on a giant blow-up version of the pool table that is 3.6 by 6.6 meters!
- Has 2 variations – the game of 8 and the game of 9.
- The soccer balls used are 2 types of size 3 balls: weighted white ball and non-weighted colored balls.
As in pool games, 15 numbered balls are arranged using a triangle. The 1 ball is placed at the top of the triangle, and the 8 ball is placed in the middle of the third row, leaving all rest randomly placed around the 8 ball.
How it’s played
The player that pockets the first ball get to choose which target ball group, solid or striped. The first player to pocket all the balls of his/her group, then the #8 ball, wins the game. During the game, a player continues playing as long as each strike pockets his/her own balls and doesn’t commit any faults.
The wacky sport is the brainchild of a couple of French entrepreneurs – Aurélien and Samuel – who are well known for their weird ideas.
