    Billiards Forum is a great place to find billiard information of all varieties. I am seeking to post the rules to Matchbox, Counterpoint, Cascade, & Counter-Rotation. They are currently listed at alternativebilliards.blogspot.com, which is devoted entirely to their rules. Thank you very much for your consideration.

    I was out of town and didn't check my email for awhile. As I look at the rules posted at Billiards Forum, I see that somebody put some work into posting them. The rules look great, and they are very organized and clear. Thank you for all your help in posting them! Kevin.

    Those rules were written really well! Thanks for letting us publish them in our billiard rules list. You obviously put a lot of thought into the new games and spend a good deal of time preparing the rules. (which is crucial for a game's success) I'll keep an eye on the traffic, if any, those pages get, just so you know how/if the games are "taking hold" as time passes. Hopefully you can join the forum (if you have not done so already) and be an active contributor.
