The game of bumper pool is a lot of fun to play. It combines some aspects of the game of pool, with the competition of a game such as football. In bumper pool you are trying to hit your colored balls into the scoring hole on your opponent's side of the table before your opponent hits all of his balls into the hole on your side of the table. Shooting your own ball into the hole on your opponent's side of the table can be considered similar to playing offense in football.
Sometimes though, you don't have a good angle to shoot your ball into a hole. When this happens, it's best to use your ball to deflect any of your opponent's balls that are set up for an easy shot into the hole he wants to shoot them into. This is why bumper pool is so much fun to play. Even when you don't have a chance to make an easy shot, you can try to frustrate your opponent by making his shot more difficult as well.
The game of bumper pool can be played as a game between two individuals. Bumper pool can be even more fun to play though when playing with teams of two players on each team. In a team game of bumper pool, players on the same team alternate turns when it is their teams turn to take a shot in bumper pool. You can even make your own rules with bumper pool to turn it into either a gambling game. That is one of the reasons why I feel that bumper pool is so much fun to play.
