What a fun game, my brother and I got it for christmas in 1975. Still remember those commercials with Don Adams and Lucy. "If it doesn't have a pivot, it isn't Pivot Pool from Milton Bradley." Don Adams had a black eye. LOL

I still remember the commercial with Lucille Ball.
My brother got the game and we'd always say the words from the commercial as we would play pool.
It was a lot of fun.
I know he still has the game. I wonder if he still remembers the commercial.

I was the youngest of 5 kids all growing up in the 70’s.

Pivot Pool was hands down the best “family” Christmas present we ever received. Years before Atari began to take over kids' imagination, this game would keep us occupied for hours on end and was a fun game to play with our parents and their friends as well.

My son had pivot pool and lost the pool balls to it. Does anyone know where I can get them? My grandson would love to play it.

Man, I loved this game. My brother and I got it for Christmas in the 70s. He's been gone for over 10 years but one of the best memories I have is of us as kids playing this. Thanks for the opportunity to post this.

I had this game. I believe my cousin gave it to me. My fondest memory of this game was our cats Dusty and Patches getting on top of it and knocking the balls in the pocket. I know my mother has pictures.

I got a pivot pool game when I was 10 years old. I loved it, and could beat almost everybody I played. I even loved playing by myself. My son used to play with it also, but my daughter was never interested in it. I still have it; It is in my mother's basement in the orginal box. I took a look at it last week, it is still in very good condition.

I was never beaten at pivot pool. Funny thing is, I can't real play pool well enough to save my life. I can't line up balls well. But I was great at those angles in pivot pool. Don't know. Maybe it's because I looked was directly over the balls instead of at an angle when standing at a pool table. Anyway I'd love to have a Pivot Pool for my 2 kids, ages 6 and 5.

This was one of those ultimate games. Great idea, good game for all ages and a great spokesperson on top of it. I remember this game dominating all others when we'd visit family friends. In the days before Hummers, if you had Pivot Pool, your family was cool.

Makes you wish that great companies like Ideal were still around.

My family got this for Christmas in 1974 and my mother nearly sold it at a garage sale this spring. At my brothers long distance urging, she pulled it from the sale and had to tell three boys that she had changed her mind about selling it. Today, on the other side of the state, I found the exact Pivot Pool table in the box in a pile by the side of the road. And in fabulous condition. Too cool. My son loves it. I'm so glad I get to share this with him.

I got this game as a present when I was 6 in 1974. We played it for years, and I think we wore out the spring. I still think of the fun of playing pivot pool...

I had forgotten about this game. We got it for Chritmas one year. My dad taught me and my brother how to play pool with this game when we were to small for a real pool table.

I haven't thought about this game since I was a kid. When I just saw it, my jaw dropped. Now I remember the commercials with Lucille Ball. Man, I would love to play this again!!
