Hello everyone,

I woud like to know whether you, as spectators/players at events, would like
to see a booth with pool related games in them?

Most of you have probably seen the nine ball break contest. This is where
you get three breaks and whoever pockets the most balls cumulatively in
those three breaks wins.

So the question is would you like to see more of these types of games and
what games would they be.

I am trying to gauge the interest level to plan for next year's events.

Thanks in advance to anyone who participates.

John

I don't know if you are talking about tournaments or trade shows, but the answer is yes. Make it a happening event, where people feel they are involved and not just on the outside looking in.

Yes.

Fastest break - MPH
Fastest rack 8 or 9
Most draw - distance
Most follow - distance
Most consecutive banks from predetermined locations
Most consecutive spot shots - or more extreme shots
Most consecutive kick shots made
Slow roll - most balls from the kitchen shot to a 1D x 1D square without touching each other

Just a few ideas.

Sounds good to me. I think a "pool" version of the basketball challenge game
H-O-R-S-E would be exciting.
