There is a carnival visiting this weekend, with a game that seems easy enough to win, given the right strategy - I just don’t know what that is.
There is a mini-pool table, and about 6 feet away, a ball rests in the middle of a 5" circle (give or take a little). There is a half dollar placed on the top of the ball, slightly facing you. To win, you have to hit your cue ball into the object ball (without jumping), and knock the coin completely out of the circle.
I assume that this is a combination of English and speed, but I don’t know which.
To the best of my knowledge, the game looks fair - i.e. the balls are equal weight, the circle is a true one, the half dollar is a real one.
