After almost 20 matches in which I always used spin, I am starting to feel spin makes the game easier. And perhaps just a little to easy. So I am considering the following variant.

The use spin you add difficulty for each card moved after the ibject ball in addition to the compulsory chalck to use spin. This has the added benefit of making spin shots in line with other shots where each card move to adds to the difficulty of the shots.

I will try this in my next tournment.

Sounds interesting - let me know how it goes.

I'm pleased to see the game has replayability for you.

I am no exclusively playing this way, i.e. each card entered after hitting the object ball adds to the shot difficulty. This is in addition to paying 1 chalck to be allowed to move after hitting the object ball.

I'm currently updating the rules.

The rules for Spin currently say:

For the first card of this ‘Spin path’ you will need 1 Chalk. For each additional card in the Spin path add 1 to the Shot Difficulty.

This is in addition to the normal shot difficulty of the number of cards from the Cue ball to the Object ball to the pocket.

Is what you are suggesting different to this?

Yes, my suggestion is that each card adds to the difficulty, including the first card.

If this is what the rules already try to say, then I suggest a rewrite similar to this.

"To use spin, you will need to spend 1 Chalk. For each card in the Spin path add 1 to the Shot Difficulty."

Ah - now I understand.
Yes, I like your suggestion as it is consistent with the game mechanic, so I'll update the rules accordingly.

Thanks.
