Loop Pool Table

When an incident ray meets the surface of a curve, the angle it makes with the tangent to that point is equal to the angle between the reflected ray and the tangent. Once you understand this concept you’re ready to tackle Loop, the game of pool on an ellipse. Loop is more than pool spelled in reverse: it’s a game of angles like its rectangular counterpart, but more trigonometric. The rules are simple but the gameplay is exacting. Played with only three balls and a cue ball, the player need only sink a colored ball and the eight ball. But the key to Loop is always to calculate the angles by considering the positions of the focus points. The concept is easy enough to understand but hard enough to master, making Loop a challenge to even the most analytical mind.
