Hitler Snooker

scrabble plus snooker plus Hitler

There are 22 balls in the normal game of snooker, so 4 more are needed to generate the new game of Hitler Snooker.
Here’s what it’s 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.

       But, but, but ... Hitler Has Only Got One Ball ...   

       (Göring has two, but very small,
Himmler,
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.

       “A camera placed about the table establishes the view point and each letter must be clearly visible on the ball to be counted”
  

       For that, letters might need to be printed multiple times over each ball’s surface to ensure there is always one visible topside.   

       There’s a kind of novelty toy made of a clear outer shell with an inner ball floating in a thin layer of clear liquid. Often made to look like eyeballs, the inner ball is weighted so the eye always looks like it’s staring straight up. You could use those and print them with letters - or maybe the face of your favorite Nazi.

       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.

       I see. That certainly does add an extra challenge - well done.
