Pool Table Ideas

I did a lot of research on pool tables as I did with my poker table topic. So I propose two kinds of pool. US and UK pool. I think we should have both!

I would like to have 9ft US pool tables and 6ft UK pool tables and have them in different areas maybe? For example, the 6ft UK pool tables would be great in an indoor pub while the 9ft US pool tables can be in the arcade.

I also think you should be able to buy different kinds of pool tables, cue sticks and ball sets to use.

Cloth colors should be different outside of the condos. For example Tournament Blue for the US tables and English Green for the UK tables.

Different pool rules and games would be pretty awesome as well.

Here are some links to help with references on the difference between the two.

Since the cloth styles are very different on the two tables the gameplay might be a bit different due to speed and the pockets being different as well and the size of cue sticks used.

For the UK table I want it to look something like this. Oak finish with English Green cloth color.

For the US table I want to look something like this. Matte black finish with Tournament Blue cloth.

Perhaps players choose from a menu for 8-ball, 9-ball, one-pocket (with little walls popping up to block pockets or make them available based on the game being played?), straight pool (click the ball and pocket before shooting to call your shot), carom (see the aforementioned means of blocking the pockets), etc?

The table could have LED signs on the sides that display the game being played.
