Thanks a lot, K2Kraze. Could you describe how those ivories play - duller? Do they bank differently? I suppose they sound a lot different from modern ones, too.

Yes, tell us your football rules. I love football. Not so much baseball and basketball. Although pool baseball is nice. :-)

Hi Rubik's,

do you still have a picture of the sad state the balls were in before our friend K2Kraze polished them to like new?
