Bar Billiards is a game played with small skittles, the purpose of which is to provide a hazard - players must avoid toppling them while building a score. The problem with skittles is that they are thin and so can easily fall into the holes and get lost or stuck. Additionally, in most variations of the game, the holes are blocked when only one ball is left on the table and it is convenient if a mushroom can be popped into a hole to achieve this.
Therefore, Bar Billiards skittles are designed to have a something wide near the top to prevent them falling all the way into a hole. The solution employed here is to embed a piece of wire through the top half of the skittle pin.
This set of Bar Billiards skittles contains 2 natural wood skittle pins and 1 black skittle pin.
