History: The origins of Bagatelle (or its many iterations) are even less clear than most games of a similar history, although we do know it has ties to French Kings, American President Abraham Lincoln, and developed into bar billiards, eventually leading to the development of pachinko and pinball. Bagatelle was a game involving sticks and balls that evolved from efforts to bring outdoor games like ground billiards, croquet, and bowling inside for play during inclement weather. Dating all the way back to the 15th century, the most recent version came about in the 18th century. In France, during the long 1643–1715 reign of Louis XIV, billiard tables were narrowed, with wooden pins or skittles at one end of the table, and players would shoot balls with a stick or cue from the other end, in a game inspired as much by bowling as billiards. Pins took too long to reset when knocked down, so they were eventually fixed to the table, and holes in the bed of the table became the targets. Players could ricochet balls off the pins to achieve the harder scorable holes. Quite a number of variations on this theme were developed. In 1777 a party was thrown in honour of Louis XVI and the queen at the Château de Bagatelle, recently erected at great expense by the king's brother, the Count of Artois. Bagatelle from Italian bagattella, signifies 'a trifle', 'a decorative thing'. The highlight of the party was a new table game featuring a slender table and cue sticks, which players used to shoot ivory balls up an inclined playfield. The game was dubbed bagatelle by the count and shortly after swept through France. From 1770 to 1850 Bagatelle was just as popular as Billiards throughout England and Britain. Some French soldiers carried their favorite bagatelle tables...
