Thurston & Co. Ltd. Billiard, Snooker, Life Pool Scoreboard.
A nice combined billiards and life pool scoreboard made of mahogany by Thurston & Co. Ltd. The billiard scorer has two dark blue rollers with gold painted numbers, 0 to 20 / 20 to 40 / 40 to 60 / 60 to 80 / 80 to 100, with two brass slides to mark your score, one spot and one plain. The Life Pool board consists of 12 slides with coloured discs, each colour representing the player’s cue ball and the order of play. The colours being white, red, yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, spot white, spot red, spot yellow, spot green and spot brown. When each slide is pulled back 3 birch wood discs are revealed, one for each life of the player. There are also “stars” hiding, and these are used as extra lives. In the middle of the scoreboard there is a slate board for keeping scores etc.
The game of Life Pool can be played by a number of players, a maximum of 12 players with this scoreboard, who form the pool. Each player has their own coloured ball and loses a life each time the ball is potted by an opponent. When three lives are lost an extra life can be purchased, this is represented by the ‘star’. This can be done up to 3 times before the player finally has to leave the game.
