    My 1936, which should be the same as 1935 as both are reprints from 1926 (1938 was next revised), has 2,861 words.
    Previous post above 2001 was a typo, I of course meant 2014.

    I need to get out more

    the font-size will be a tad smaller yes

    The rules these days seem to be far more wordy than the old A3 versions so I'm guessing it wouldn't fit anyway?

    I don't need to copy/paste
    I have done publishing in the past
    I had 2011 already done so just the changes to be affected


    Now if you want A? - how much margin do you need so the words don't go under the frame?

    No Billiard Room looks right without a set of rules

    I asked them back in August if they would do a A3 poster like they used to but they said there was no plans.
    An A3 poster was what I had in mind. Maybe copy and paste is the answer. A bit OTT for my own snooker room but I thought it would look nice framed next to the old version.

    Dean, do you have that as a pdf? I'd been thinking about doing a copy and paste job to produce an A3 sized one to go alongside my framed 1935 revision

    As far as I know the 2019 v3 rules published in November went to the printers back then, so I'm surprised not to have seen anything about the book being available yet.

    WPBSA has not done a post (of any size) for many years.
    So I did my own for the club - to replace the old ones from 84

    That would be great! Do we think the rules are stable enough now?
