Over 300 Ways to Play Billiards - 06-03-2019, 05:10 PM

Since I was looking around for new/different games to describe, I thought I would record the origin of this subforum.

The book, "Over 300 Ways to Play Billiards" was written by James Childers and published in October, 2011. There is an AZB review of the book here: https://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=264349

Softcover
ISBN 10: 1450795749
ISBN 13: 9781450795746
Publisher: James Childers, 2011
Pages: 215
Size: 8.5x11 inches

James was user "phretless" here and was the "maintainer" of this subforum back when it was created.

The website he created, 300ways.com, has not existed since about 2015 but old versions can be accessed through archive.org:

http://web.archive.org/web/201508010...//300ways.com/

Some of the parts of the archived site don't work but you can get to a long list of games, including "Bumble Puppy".

I can't find any available used copies of the book.
