by Joseph Michael Minkevitch
Billiard or pool tables can be found in nearly every gaming parlor in the world and many other places people gather to compete against each other as they apply the laws of physics to a popular pastime. Consummate and dedicated billiard players the world over have tried nearly every variation of the game out there and have even made up a few of their own, but until now, there has not been much an original variation which combines other favorite sports with billiards in a one-of-a-kind manner.
Offering a new twist on a familiar game, Joseph M. Minkevitch has cleverly adapted the rules of football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and golf to the billiard table by including concise instructions for regulation and tie-breaker play, table set-up illustrations for each sport, and game examples, as well as addressing fouls and legitimate safeties and other important facts of play. How to Play New Billiard Sports Games offers both the billiard parlor proprietor and home players another use for those well-known tables by forming teams for competitive play and setting up inter-league games by incorporating at least two beloved and popular pastimes into one challenging and entertaining game.
