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.
