Everyone who sees this wants to play it! The game is played by racking balls in a certain way, then keeping score by the number of "strokes" it takes to run the rack. Each "hole" is rated from par 3 to par 5. Up to four players can play at a time. The scoreboard is quite heavy and durable, weighing about 5 lbs. It measures a large 16" x 28", and is almost 1/2" thick. The dry-erase surface is simply wiped clean for the next game. "Billiard and Golf" comes with a white board marker, and hook and loop to attach the pen wherever is handy. You'll love this game, as well as the way it looks on your wall!
