I just watched it. Well, most of it...

I was gonna sleep on it before making judgement, but...it's bad. Target shots...continuation shots...orange ball...purple ball... The game is like a mishmosh of 5 different traditional billiard games, mixed with a lil football and a sprinkle of dodgeball. Just sayin'.

Bonus Ball kinda reminds me of an old episode of I Love Lucy. you know, the one where Ricky and Fred are teaching Lucy and Ethyl how to Golf, only they are teaching them all kinds of wrong, fugged up stuff.

That's why I kind of liked it, it's a mix of one pocket, straight pool, and snooker to a point. The target and continuation just add strategy to it, but when thos options come up they're not very easy shots which adds a variation of 3 cushion to it

I kind of liked it to but that is the problem. You have to be deep into pool to like it so you can appreciate all the nuisances the game has. For it to foster newcomers to the game? never going to happen.

How they can fix it

I would have found it to be more interesting if they had to ask "Mother, May I?" before the continuation shots and were blindfolded to pin the tail on the Bonus Ball. They should probably have to dunk for the orange balls and if they come up with an apple they have to take 3 steps backwards before shooting their second shot. Y'know, just something to make it different.
