Flanges is a billiards term that is a part of Cue Sport Game Name Terminology.
Flanges is a type of cueless billiards were players use their fingers instead of pool cues. Players take turns shooting, rotating counterclockwise, with the goal of shooting as many balls as possible into the diagonally opposite corner pocket from the pocket you are standing behind.
On missed shots in the game of flanges, the ball is open and may be stolen and pocketed by the new owner in their opposing pocket. In this game, tied scores are broken by performing a lag. We have a fingerless pool rules page for flanges billiard rules.
