There are 22 balls in the normal game of snooker, so 4 more are needed to generate the new game of Hitler Snooker.
Heres what its all about:
The snooker balls all have one new feature, that being a letter of the alphabet printed on them. Now instead of knocking the balls down the holes, players
must also try to create simple words within the spaces allocated to get extra points. A camera placed about the table
establishes the view point and each letter must be clearly visible on the ball to be counted. There are other rules, but the main objective is to generate words as you would in a game of scrabble.
The winner is always the first person to make the word Hitler, regardless of the scores up to this point.
The game proceeds like normal snooker except all of the vowels are on the coloured balls, along with the letters H, T, L, and R. The white ball has the E on it. This means that the end game will consist of both players trying to make the winning name with all of the other balls gone from the table.
Hitler Has Only Got One Ball
... generally sung as four-line verses to the tune of the "Colonel Bogey March". [8th of 7, Oct 12 2020]
||But, but, but ... Hitler Has Only Got One Ball ...
||(Göring has two, but very small,
Has something sim'lar,
But poor old Goebbels
Has no balls
At all ...)
||Are you allowed to manipulate the balls with your hands?
||Not in polite company, or a public place, no.
||What you do in the privacy of you own home or vehicle is your own business.
||No, the idea is that you need to get the ball to
stop in a precise way. Printing letters all over
makes it too easy for a skilled player.
