Sans Egal Bagatelle Rules

This game requires 4 reds, 4 whites and the black, one player playing only reds, the other only whites.

Sans Egal Bagatelle Rules

The black ball is placed on the middle spot and players take turns to play one ball alternately.

As with Bagatelle, the first ball must strike the black first. If it fails to do so, it is not removed from the table but the player forfeits 5 points and does not score anything should the ball drop into a hole. In this case, the onus for striking the black ball then falls to the opponent.

If a player knocks an opponent's ball into a pocket, the ball is scored for the opponent. Other rules are played in the same way as for Victorian Bagatelle.

The highest scorer after playing all 4 balls wins unless it has been agreed that the game should be for a specific number of points - typically 25 or 31.

There is a variant of Sans Egal Bagatelle. Every ball played must first strike the black until the black is holed. The player who scores the black scores the value of that hole plus the value of any of his own balls already holed (whether by himself or the opponent).
