basically it’s a game. it’s played on a custom made table that looks like this
so the table has lowered ends and you use pool balls to play. You set up the balls either in a pattern or along the sides.
so you take the cue ball and try to knock your opponents balls into the recessed area. it’s a bit like shuffle board. it’s insanely fun. some of the kids get a bit rambunctious and the balls escape the carpetball enclosure and go flying then bouncing across the floor.
I have plans for a carpet ball table and plan to eventually build one, then set it out in my front yard and invite my neighbors to play. it would be a great form of “party theology”
