The Pocket Book of Pocket Billiards

The Rack, The Rules—And A Working Pool Table

By Mike Vago

At last, a real working pool table for guys without a basement or a spare $2,000. From the bestselling author of The Miniature Book of Miniature Golf, comes an original gift: a complete miniature, working pool table, plus balls, rack, cue, and bridge, packaged with a 48-page full-color book that explains how to play more than 30 games.

The snap of the cue, the crack of the balls, the satisfying thwack of sinking your shot: It’s all the fun of pool, on a table that you can play anywhere, anytime. The diminutive, stable table is covered in a felt like material, and even has an automatic return that collects the balls in a drawer below. The cue never needs chalking, and the whimsical bridge helps with those hard-to-reach shots. The book gives complete, easy-to-follow rules to a variety of games: classics like Eight Ball and Nine Ball, of course, and 141 Continuous—the legendary game of straight pool played by Fast Eddie and Minnesota Fats in The Hustler, and every other skilled pocket billiards player—but also unusual games (Six Stroke, Convergence, Seven Ball, Bowlliards), and games the inventive author made up or adapted to play on the pool table—Hockey, Tag, even Sharks & Minnows.
