No, we aren’t heading to a hooters bar, we are checking out a new game that is a combination of pool and bowling.

When Steve Wienecke got it into his head that you should be able to play pool from on top of the table his mind went into inventor mode. The monster game table was created with 38 railroad ties, five truckloads of gravel, and 4 ¼ yard of concrete. It took over 200 hours of hard labor to complete. It is exactly like a regulated pool table, except that everything is scaled 4x larger.

Each ball is a bowling ball with the pool ball colors added. Just like pool the first shot with a ball in a pocket determines if you are solids or stripes. Steve has the perm anent table and a table which is portable made out of plastic. He is seeking investors to take his game to a new level.

 

Learn Something Fun: Did you know that Billiards or Pool evolved from a lawn game similar to croquet played sometime during the 15th century in Northern Europe.
