Sardines Icon test

Here's my first draft of an icon for the new Magnetic Billiards game.

I've looked at it too much now and I can't tell if it's any good, or complete rubbish, or which variant looks better.

Would you tap this icon? Maybe it needs a few tweaks? Or maybe it's completely the wrong approach and I should throw it away and start again?

I've no idea any more.

Too much background I think. Compare the current MB one, where the beardy bloke is the key feature and the balls and diagram are definitely background material. I'd have about 2 balls on the table, roughly where the blue ones are, and leave the rest as blue or green baize. That should give you a distinctive shape that would make the icon distinctive and easy to find.

Cheers! Much appreciated.
