The Emperor, Cambridge

Billiards, Pool, and Darts are promised at the Emperor, a popular music venue on the edge of the city centre. There may well have been a Billiards Table at some point, but there was no sign of it on my visit. In common with many Cambridge pubs, the Emperor offers a wide selection of board games for customers to play.

The Pool Table is certainly an unusual one in that it is circular, or more properly hexagonal, but perhaps even more unusual in being free to play! It's a fine looking table, but I would imagine that judging the angles could become more of a guessing game than one of pure skill, and the novel shape would certainly rule out any chance of League play.

A fine pair of Darts Boards appear to be well used. League Darts is still played in the Cambridge area, though whether the Emperor field a team is not clear.
