There was a game that was played at Sand's Cue & Cushion in Pittsurgh in the '50s called Turkey Break.A big old board would replace the Keno board for the 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. It just had holes with numbers. Then came out a 36 ball rack. For a quarter you got one break.You scored by counting the numbers on the holes you filled with a ball. The scores and quarters accumulated and on Thanksgiving Day the pool of quarters was awarded to the highest accumulated total score for the 2 weeks.

This is to the best of my recollection. If somebody has corrections to be made, please do.
