Pool Played with Bowling Balls

Steve Wienecke of Fredericktown, Missouri invented a game that he calls "Knokkers". It's similar to pool, but played on a surface scaled four times larger than a regulation pool table and with six-pound bowling balls. Wienecke hopes to one day see Knokkers platforms on cruise ships and in amusement parks and restaurants.

Unfortunately, bowling balls can't stand up to this - they will eventually chip or shatter, and that would be way too dangerous in a public venue.

Cool idea though.

TERRIBLE idea for cruise ships - they move people! And as for amusement parks and restaurants ... I don't think providing bowling balls to the masses outside of a bowling alley is a good idea. There's too many idiots out there.
