A mahogany combined billiards, snooker and life pool scoreboard with glazed lockable cupboards for the balls. The billiard scorer has blue rollers with gold painted numbers, 0 to 100, and two slides to mark your score. The Life Pool board consists of 12 slides with coloured discs, each colour representing the player's cue ball, the colours being White, Red, Yellow, Green, Brown, Blue, Pink, Black, spot White, spot Red, spot Yellow and spot Green. Each slide when pulled out reveals three discs, one for each life. There are also 'stars' hidden, to mark extra lives. Fitted central to the scoreboard is a slate for keeping scores etc. Between the ball cupboards are 12 glazed compartments for each player to place their stake money for the game of Life Pool. Once the money has been placed into the slots it cannot be retrieved until the game is over and the drawer is unlocked and opened. Upon opening the drawer the stake money drops into it to be collected.
The scoreboard was made by Thurston & Co. London.

The game of Life Pool can be played by a number of players, who form the pool. Each player has their own coloured ball and loses a life each time the ball is potted by an opponent. When a player loses all of his lives he is out of the game.
Very good working order, two small repairs to the wood work.
