Beach Beauty

The flyer likes to say this is the ultimate select-a-spot...well, maybe, but with a gotcha.

The 25 numbers are colored either red or green. You may be able to spot any red number or any green number (but not both) if the feature is enabled, and you succeed in potting a ball in one of the wild pockets.

With only the red number lit, you must sink a ball in hole 1-3. With only the green numbers lit, you must sink a ball in hole 4-7.

Spotting is allowed any time before the 4th ball is shot. If you pot a ball in the wild pocket on any ball after the 4th (including any extra balls), you can spot before you shoot the next ball, and you are then locked out again.

I believe you can only have on wild per color group, so dropping a ball in hole #1, then hole #2 will give you the one spotting ability for #1, and the ball in hole #2 counts as a ball in hole #2.

The other gotcha is that using a ball in a wild pocket removes that number from play. For example, if you use the ball in hole #2 to spot some other red colored number, then #2 is dead. Of course, you can use the ball in hole #2 to spot #2.

Hopefully someone with this game can correct this if it's not right.

one-card games

The game has one main card, usually a 5x5 grid of numbers.

Usually, at least three numbers next to each other on either a horizontal, vertical, or the main 5 number diagonals are required to win.

There were, however, a few variations that occured over the years. The dimensions of the card, 2-in-line winners, and winning on the other diagonal combinations were all features that were used.

Another common feature was corners scoring.
