Very poor rules[edit]

The rules are written extremely poorly. For example they talk about making a cup but not what this means. Also who drinks the side shooting? Please make this for people who do not know the rules to understand them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:07, 31 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Both points seem to be well covered in the lead paragraph to me. Pinkbeast (talk) 18:51, 10 November 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"[W]ho drinks[,] the side shooting?": is asking which team gets to drink the contents when a cup is made. It seems odd to say that point is well covered: it's not touched on at all.
My impression is tht the team "making" a cup thereby compels its opponents to drink that cup (and clear it from the table). I'm amending the article to say so . . please correct if I'm wrong!!
On the other point, the lede describes what "making" a cup is ("a ball lands in a cup"), and that is perfectly clear - provided the reader already knows what making a cup is (and so is able to recognise the description).
I'm confident of clarifying that!
Finally, there's mention in one of the sections (#Shot techniques) of knocking cups over; presumably the lede should mention this too? - but I think I should leave that to contributors who know the game! 2A04:B2C2:405:EB00:DE9:C685:56B2:67A5 (talk) 16:06, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
