What is Equal Offense?
Equal Offense is a non-head-to-head game based on straight pool. The goal is to score as many points as you can in 10 innings at the table. Each inning begins with an open break shot. Any balls pocketed are spotted. The maximum allowed score for each inning is 20, for a maximum possible score of 200. As with straight pool, after pocketing the 14th ball, you must re-rack the 14 balls (with the lead ball missing) and attempt to break the rack while pocketing the 15th ball that remains on the table.
After each inning-starting break, you start with ball in hand in the kitchen. As in straight pool, it is important to think about balls that can serve as the break shot ball in case we run the other 14.
