In this game you need to shoot all your opponent pieces into the holes before your opponent does the same. This is a billiard like game and the table is a square table with four holes around the four corners. The players will stand opposite to each other at the table, each player will have 16 pieces. At the start of the game 14 pieces will be put on the edge of the player and the remaining 2 pieces will be put at the corners. Around the four corners of the table are four circles which are the shooting areas, normally a white piece is put in one of the shooting areas and the player hits the white piece with his cue to hit the other pieces. At the start of the game each player shoots the white piece towards the centre of the table, the one who shoots the white piece closer to the centre starts the game first. To start a round, the player puts the white piece on one of the two shooting areas on his side, and then hits the white piece with his cue so that the white piece hits his pieces on the opposite edge. Note that the cue must enter the table from his own edge and not from the two sides of the table.
The following are some special rules of the game:
品f a player shoots his opponent's pieces into the hole, then he gets extra shots based on the number of pieces he shot into the hole. For example if he shoots 3 pieces in one hit, then he gets 3 extra shots
品f you shoot your white pieces into the hole or out of the table, then you loses one shot. If you do not have any remaining shots, then your opponent gets an extra shot.
品f you shoot the opponent pieces out of the table, then that piece becomes a "small loop" and is put in the centre of the table.
? ?you cannot shoot the "small loop" directly with the white piece but the white piece must bounce off an edge to hit it
? ?if you hit your "small loop" directly, then you loses one shot and the "small loop" must be put back on to the centre
? ?if you hit your "small loop" but cannot move it away from the centre circle, then that piece is put back to the centre and continue to act as "small loop"
品f an opponent piece goes beyond your baseline, then that piece becomes a "big loop" and you must hit that piece by bouncing from the top edge
品f a piece enters the shooting area of your opponent, then your opponent can use that piece as the white piece directly when it is his turn
品f your white piece hits your pieces directly, then that piece will be removed from the table and taken as shot into a hole
