The quarter trick, as they say is an old trick from the 1940’s. It’s known as a quarter-turn. The idea is to make the turning of a ball to the middle of the table the best possible way for it to go. I found that for the average game, that’s not the best technique, but for extremely well timed games there is definitely enough room for the turning of a ball to the middle of the table. That’s where the quarter trick comes in. It’s a trick in which you place a piece on top of the other piece and then turn the piece so your opponent has to choose whether to throw a point or not. And if you can do both turns correctly you get the quarter tricks. It’s a pretty cool trick.
Have you done any practice with it yet?
No, but I have been thinking about it and thinking back over the years and trying to come up with ways to make it easier. The original concept was pretty simple. You placed a piece on the inside of the ball and then turned the ball around in a circle around the center piece and back. This method seemed pretty easy, but in practice it isn’t.
If the piece lands on its outside, you need to turn again, but the trick is no longer as straight as it might appear. Instead you have to rotate the ball on the inside around the piece, and then back again to the center. For this trick, I think the real trick is that you need to rotate the ball over so far that it is facing the same way you did the center turn. Now you can keep the ball on the outside of the ball, turning and rotating back and forth. So the circle you formed on the inside gets smaller and further away from the center, and it’s also bigger around the outside. So now the trick is you just keep pulling the ball out of the circle to get to the center.
So, the trick for the quarter trick is actually much broader than just the center one. You use the circles you formed on the outside for different phases of the trick.
So what does the quarter trick look like in an actual game?
My favorite quarter-turn is the quarter trick, but there are a number of other ones that you can do. For example, in a game that’s over before the first player has any points, you have to put the middle player on top of the first player, and then you use the quarter trick to make the third player
