    Knokkers (slogan: Knokkers are big fun!) is a giant game of pool with no sticks and bowling balls instead of billiard ones. [Insert 10lb balls joke here] It's the brainchild of Steve Wienecke, who undoubtedly stayed up countless nights trying to think up a better name than Big Balls Bangin'. (I would've just run with it, Steve).
    ...the first playable version was built in his backyard in Fredericktown, Missouri using loads of railway ties, gravel and of course concrete. The game is played pretty much exactly like standard 8-ball pool, the only real difference is that before your shot you're allowed to pick up and move the cue ball, though you can't move your feet once you've touched it. Steve is currently working with investors as they design a portable version of the game that doesn't require a permanent backyard investment, including more durable 6-pound balls that can stand up to the constant collisions experienced during a regular game.
    I'm not gonna lie, I'd get drunk and play it. Also, shuffleboard. "Jesus GW, what are you, 80?" No, but I probably have the liver and bladder of one! "OMG, ARE YOU PEEING YOUR PANTS RIGHT NOW?!" I don't know -- am I? - Geekologie
