The second month of the NDAL 54×70 Games league, Summer series, featured a game called Snooker, designed by Bud Houston.
Snooker is scored Points, Then Time.
You will note that no course time was set for this game. And so, that’s exactly how the game was played, and scored.
There are six active teams to competing in the Summer Series. More clubs might play in this league… especially when they discover that the set of equipment in the 54×70 is always exactly as set in the 50×70; the only difference being that the 54×70 will feature some interesting game that demand cunning and guile.
