1. A two player game that uses a traditional table tennis ball and paddle to rally back and forth across the game table. The "Alley" is made up of a 4 inch wide stripe stretching across the middle of the table, with three 8 inch blocks positioned 5 inches apart. Shots can travel flat across the table between the alley blocks, over the top of the alley blocks, or ricochet off the alley blocks in random trajectories. Multiple bounces or rolls are welcome on either side of the table during the rally. The rally is concluded when a player fails to return the ball to the opponent's side of the table, and it falls onto the ground yielding one point to the winner. Shots that come to a rest in the “Alley” result in a redo of the point.
2. The first player to reach 23 is the winner. A coin toss decides the initial server. Service switches every 2 serves. Serves are required to bounce or roll at least once on the serving player's side of the table prior to striking on the opponent’s side. Receiving players must let the ball bounce prior to striking it.
3. An “Alley shot” is when a player ricochets the ball off of any part of the Alley. Alley shots that travel towards the opponents side are not required to land on the table. A "Tres-Alley shot "' is when a player ricochets the ball off of any two alley blocks on a shot. Players must win the rally to collect the Alley shot or Tres-Alley shot and are awarded 2 or 3 points respectively. If the Alley shot or Tres-Alley shot ricochets back towards the executing player's side, they are responsible for returning it to their opponent. Alley shots that ricochet off the side of the table at a right angle result in a redo of the point.
4. A “Rumble” is when a player is leading 11-0, ending the game.
5. Shots that are questioned by either opponent result in a friendly redo of the point.
