Billiards Curling Game
(invented by kids)
2 to 5 players
- Each player picks the same amount of numbered/colour-coordinated balls. Remember the numbers/colours of your balls.
– If 2 players: each player chooses solids or stripes, the cue ball is with the stripes.
– If 3 players: each player chooses 5 consecutive numbers.
– If 4 players: each player takes 2 colours – a stripe & solid per colour; black & white are paired in the place of a colour.
– If 5 players: each player chooses 3 consecutive numbers.
- Center a paper shooting target against the bunker at one end of billiards table. (pictured is an Allen “100-yard small bore rifle” target)
- Players take turns rolling a ball from the opposite end of the billiards table towards the target.
- If the ball does not pass the front edge of the paper target or touch another ball, the player can re-roll.
- When all the balls are shot, the round is then complete and scored.
- Every round, a different player starts/ends the cycle of play.
- If other players sink your ball in a pocket, you get one point for each ball sunk. (You don’t get a point for your balls sunk on your own shot)
- Balls are scored (5-10 points each) according to value of the ring where the bottom of the ball touches the target.
- Balls outside the target rings, but still touching the paper, are scored 2 points.
- The first player to score a predetermined number of points, wins. Or …
- The player who scores the most points within a time-frame, wins.
