Set Up

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.
