Meet the LOOP: a pool table that lets you the game on an ellipse. The goal is to put a color ball and then the black ball in the hole. Here is how the game works:

The first player names a color that he wants to pot and the first shot must hit that color. The other player must aim to pocket the other color… A player who pots the black with his or her color still on the table loses the game.

The above video provides more insight into how this game works. Let’s just say knowing your angles and some geometry wouldn’t hurt your cause here.
