#83-92 – Pool Zenn 1 – 10

#83 – Pool Zenn 1

The game is played with If small chips and 1 big chip (cue ball). The 4 small chips are placed on the 4 letters on one side of the board. The big chip is placed in the center circle. Player A then tries to sink all 4 small chips into either basket by shooting the big chip at the smaller ones (Fig. 34). Thus, one utilizes the large chip as a cue ball. ·If the large chip is either shot off the board or into either basket, a two shot penalty is assessed. The large chip is then placed in the center circle. If a small chip is shot off the board, no penalty shots are assessed, but the opponent may place the small chip on any of the unoccupied letters on the board. The total number of shots it takes to sink all 4 chips is Player A’s score. Player B then takes his turn to sink the 4 small chips. The player with the fewer number of shots is the winner.

#85 – Pool Zenn 3

The game is played like POOL ZENN 1 or 2, but 2 small red and 2 small blue chips are used. The red and blue chips must be sunk alternately.

#86 – Pool Zenn 4

All 8 small chips are placed on the 8 letters on the board. The large chip is placed in the center circle with players alternating shots at the chips. The game is over when all 8 chips have been sunk. The player to sink the most chips is the winner. In case of a tie another round is to be played. If a player sinks the big chip into either basket, or shoots it off the board, he must place a small chip that he has already sunk (or if he has not sunk any, he must replace the first chip that he sinks) back onto a letter of his opponent’s choice.

Note: Again, the big chip is being utilized as the cue ball.

#88 – Pool Zenn 6

The game is played like POOL ZENN 4, but the first player to sink 21 chips (or any other predetermined number) is the winner. When there is only 1 small chip left on the board the other seven chips are replaced on any 7 of the 8 letters on the board by the player whose turn it is to shoot. The big chip is placed in the center circle, and play continues (Fig. 36).

#89 – Pool Zenn 7

The game is played like POOL ZENN 6, but if a player sinks a small chip he gets another shot. His turn continues until he fails to sink a small chip or until he “scratches” (sinks his big chip or shoots it off the board).

#90 – Pool Zenn 8

The game is played with 5 small chips (4 of one color and 1 of another) and one big chip. The 4 small chips of the same color are placed on the 4 letters spelling “Zenn” on one side of the board while the other colored chip is placed on the “Z” on the other half of the board. The big chip is. placed in the center circle. The game is played like POOL ZENN 7 where if a player sinks a chip he gets another shot, but in this game the odd-colored chip must be the last one to be sunk. The player who sinks the odd-colored chip before all the other 4 chips are sunk loses, or the player who sinks the odd-colored chip last is the winner. Thus, the player who sinks the most chips in this game does not necessarily win.

#91 – Pool Zenn 9

The game is played with 8 small chips and 1 big chip. The small chips are placed on the 8 letters on the board in such a manner that no two chips of the same color are next to each other. The big chip is placed in the center circle (Fig. 37). Players may either alternate shots, as in POOL ZENN 4, or continue shooting after sinking a chip, as in POOL ZENN 7, but all the small red chips must be sunk first (and then the blue). If a player sinks a blue chip before all the red chips have been sunk, his turn ends, and his opponent places that blue chip on a letter of his choice.

#92 – Pool Zenn 10

The game is played like POOL ZENN 4, 6, 7, or 9, but points are awarded for each small chip sunk in the following manner: 1 point if the small chip lies in more than 1 section before being sunk; the point value of the section is awarded if the small chip lies entirely in that section before being sunk. All shots must be CALLED beforehand. No points are awarded to chips which are sunk and not called beforehand. Those chips are replaced back on a letter of the opponent’s choosing. Games are played up to a predetermined score.
