Does anyone know any other games similair to "99", Ropes and Ladders, Qskill rating system , Progressive 9ball, Triple Play, and Fargo. Where you can keep track of your progress.

Also please post your favorite Drills.

Here are a few links to some pages I found online(mostly found through posters on this forum and other links that took me there). Just wanted to get them all in one place and try find other games if they are available.

99 is the only 1 you listed that i know of off hand.Ill check those others out tonight.Theres 1 that i do and i dont even know if theres a name for it.But basically you rack all 15 balls in any order you like and shootem all down in any order you like.The only trick is you cant let the cueball touch a rail.Good for developing good speed control and thinking ahead.I hardly ever run all 15 balls.

I thought of another drill i do buts its not a game or anything.Sometimes when we bring the stick back it veers offline to the left or right which cuases the stick to swerve in the opposite direction in the forward stroke putting unwanted english on the cueball.Error in the forearm is what is cuasing that which you probably already knew.I struggle with this ocasionly and the drill that i use to correct it is:Find the line thats between the cushion and the wood part of the rail.Stroke your stick on that line.This will eliminate the error in your forearm rather quickly,at least it does for me.I find this works better then the pop bottle drill(My oppinion).For every miss i make thats due to error in the forearm i do that drill 3 times.goodluck on your game!My spelling is horrible

The other link I posted on blackbelt billiards has a link to a scorecard at the bottom of the web page and also has qskill for 9ball.
