Holy Ballz


There was a friend of mine who I went to elementary school to high school. His speaking accent was normal, but if he said the word balls, he’d say it in a Northeast accent that’d give me the giggles as if he put a Z on at the end.

All these years later, I’m playing this game called Ballz on the IPhone. I still get the giggles saying that word all these years later, by the way. 

The game is like pocket billiards in a few ways, with the object being hitting these square blocks with numbers on them. Once you hit the block that number of times, the block disappears. With each turn, one or more blocks descend, plus the chance to get another ball if you can hit it. 

The game continues until one or more blocks hit the ground. Sounds simple, but I find it highly addictng.
