Table Tennis is quite possibly the inspiration for Pong — at least the courts ruled it was. The game is nearly identical to Pong except it suffers from typical Odyssey limitations: square paddles, and no sound or on-screen scoring.
The object of the game is simple: you and your opponent each have a paddle on a screen divided in half. Players bounce a ball off their paddles towards each other until one misses it, in which case the last person to strike the ball gets one point. The first to score 21 wins.
Table Tennis is the only Odyssey title that does not have a screen overlay. ~ William Cassidy, All Game Guide
