44. SHORTENED GAMES

The standard game of 26 points may be modified as follows:
  1. 22 POINT GAME The game is started with all the clips on hoop 3.
  2. 18 POINT GAME The following variations are permitted.
    1. The game is started with all the clips on hoop 5.
    2. The game is started with all the clips on hoop 1 and the peg point is the next point in order after 2-back.
    3. The standard setting is modified by removing the centre hoops; the game is started with all the clips on hoop 1, 1-back is the next point in order after hoop 4 and the peg point is the next point in order after 4-back.
    4. The game is started with all the clips on hoop 1 but as soon as one of the balls of a side scores hoop 1 for itself or by being peeled through hoop 1, 3-back becomes the next hoop for its partner ball and the appropriate clip is placed on 3-back immediately. If both the striker's ball and the partner ball complete the running of hoop 1 in the same stroke, it is deemed that hoop 1 was only scored by the striker's ball. This variation is for singles play only.
  3. 14 POINT GAME The game is started with all the clips on hoop 1 and the peg point is the next point in order after hoop 6.
  4. ROVER HOOP In the variations defined in Laws 44(b)(3), 44(b)(4) and 44(c), the rover hoop is the last hoop point in order..
