BALLS AND RACKING

The game is played with one cue ball and 15 numbered object balls.

The balls are racked in a triangle at the foot of the table with the 8-ball in the center of the triangle, the first ball of the rack on the footspot, a stripe ball in one corner of the rack and a solid ball in the other corner

The object of the game is to make one group of numbered object balls, either stripes or solids, and then legally pocket all the balls of your group. Thereafter, you need to LEGALLY POCKET THE 8-BALL to win the game.

Game Rules

1. START WITH THE BREAK
If a single solid or single striped ball is potted, the breaker is then either solids or stripes, depending on which ball was potted. If an equal number of stripes and solids are potted, then the table is still “open” and the player can shoot at any ball. If no balls are potted, the table is open, and it is the next player’s turn.
2. As long as a player keeps potting balls, he/she continues their turn. If a player misses, or fails to call their shot, it is the next player's turn.
3. Pot all of the designated balls, and then lastly shoot at the 8-ball to pocket it and secure a win.

Calling pockets

To call a pocket all you need to do is click the pocket you want to pot the ball into. Some of the mid-ranked tables require you to call the pocket on the 8 Ball and the higher rank tables require you to call a pocket for every ball.

Common Fouls

Fouls that will result in a ball in hand for the other player. Your time gets a little shorter with every ball you pot in a game.

Cue ball not hitting your own balls: If the cue ball doesn’t make contact with one of your own balls before hitting your opponent’s balls, or it misses altogether, this is a foul.

No ball hitting the rail: If neither the object ball nor the cue ball hits the rail around the edge of the table, this is a foul

Running out of time: You have a short amount of time to take your shot, so don’t take too long or play passes to the other

Potting the 8 Ball

The following situations are fouls, and result in the win being awarded to the other player

Potting the 8 Ball before all your object balls have been potted.

Potting the cue ball and the 8 Ball on the same shot.

Potting any coloured ball before the 8 Ball on the same shot.

In a tier that requires calling pocket on the 8 Ball, potting the 8 Ball into an uncalled pocket.

Game Mechanics

Breaking off

If you get to break off, you can move the cue ball anywhere in the space to the left of the white line.

If you pot one or more balls during your break you get another turn. However, the table will remain “open” so you can choose if you want to pot the solid or stripes.

However, any spotted or striped balls potted during the break won’t count until you pot either pattern during your next turn.

If you pot the cue ball on your break, the opponent gets a ball in hand.

Having a ball in hand

On Mobile just swipe to drag the ball around the table

Using spin

Spin can help you better position the cue ball after you’ve taken a shot, setting you up for your next one. You can also use it to snooker your opponent or stop you from potting the cue ball on your turn.

You can put spin on the ball by moving the red symbol on the cue ball with your mouse or using the arrow keys. That will cause the ball to spin in that direction after it’s hit a ball.

On Mobile, all you need to do is tap the cue ball in the top right of the screen and move the red circle to apply spin in that direction.

RACKING THE BALLS

The object balls are racked into the triangle at the foot of the table. 8 ball shall always be in the center of the triangle, A stripe ball shall always be in the corner of the rack and a solid ball in the other corner

CALLING POCKETS

To call a pocket all you need to do is click the pocket you want to pot the ball into. Some of the mid-ranked tables require you to call the pocket on the 8 Ball and the higher rank tables require you to call a pocket for “Every Ball”.
