A variation on the rules, more suited to mere mortals. Any thoughts/feedback appreciated.
  • Encourages making balls on the break, while maintaining control of the cue ball.
  • Adds safety play.
  • Introduces the consideration of percentages/risk vs reward.
  • Progressive, for low/medium skill level players. Win Set 1, move on to Set 2, Set 3, and so on.
Set One
  • For each ball made on the break, you get a bonus BiH (ball in hand). Make 2 balls on the break, you get 2 BiH.
    • (Separate from the free BiH immediately after break.)
  • If a bonus BiH is used at any time during a rack and the player does not complete the win, the ghost wins 2 games.
  • If a BiH is not used during the game and the player wins, player wins 2 games.
    • Cannot use free BiH immediately after break.
    • Cannot use free BiH from called safety.
    • Cannot use bonus BiH from balls pocketed during the break.
  • If player calls and executes a safety that results in the ghost player not being able to directly contact (see) the object ball, player immediately gets a free BiH.
    • "Two-way" shots are not allowed. Must either call and execute a hook safety or call and pocket a ball.
  • Race is to 10
Set Two
  • If a BiH is not used immediately following the break and the player wins, player wins 2 games.
  • If player calls and executes a safety that results in the ghost player not being able to directly contact (see) the object ball, player immediately gets a free BiH.
    • "Two-way" shots are not allowed. Must either call and execute a hook safety or call and pocket a ball.
  • Race is to 10
Set Three
  • No free BiH immediately after the break.
  • If player calls and executes a safety that results in the ghost player not being able to directly contact (see) the object ball, player immediately gets a free BiH.
    • "Two-way" shots are not allowed. Must either call and execute a hook safety or call and pocket a ball.
  • Race is to 10
