Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 feltlike 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.
