The owner of this small town pool room in southern missouri , brought ,what I call a form of golf, from california, a game called Stymie. I didn't care for it much but I played. When it was your turn you played out of the D and counted your strokes. You had 5 strokes to make your pocket. If you didn,t you got 5 hickys and you were still going for that pocket your next turn. And in this game you had to hit a rail after contact. The first time I played I got straight in on the out hole and fired it in. The owner just roared and said"foul". I had stopped the cueball ! Slow learner I guess! LOL!
