    Billiards equipment and/or the laws of physics were different in ancient cartoon Egypt.

    Yes, does that make you feel better now?

    Look at that pyramid. You can’t DO that with real round, smooth balls on real felt.

    Then the balls have flat sides, or are stuck to the table, or are stuck to each other. In any case, the break won’t go well and the ensuing game (if there is one) will be very different.

    I think @Randy_B might be in “de-Nile” about cartoon physics.

    Actually, I did see a trick shot many years ago that imitated this. Admittedly, not to this extreme. As I recall, it was a base of three balls with one on top. The trick was supposed to put all four balls in with just one cue stroke. It was impressive, but getting the balls set in place took far longer than the trick was worth. :)

    Is that a 3 sided or 4 sided pyramid?

    I saw and attempted that! 3 and 1 AND it did take longer to set-up than it was worth.

    You can, in a cartoon.

    Used glue. The object is to sink the cue ball after shooting it into the pyramid.

    A pyramid has 5 sides, 4 triangular and one square (the bottom) a tetrahedron has 4 triangular sides.

    I’m thinking there are 32 balls in that pyramid.

    20. Looking at the rack, it’s a Tetrahedron.
