How to Play 8 Ball Pool

How to play?
  • Use the triangle to "rack up" the 15 pool balls. Different people have different preferences for the set up, but make sure the 8-ball is in the middle.
  • A player breaks. If he or she makes a ball into a pocket, he or she claims that type (solid or stripes) for the duration of the game and shoots again. The other player receives the variation they did not claim.
    • If the player makes a ball of each variation, they may choose which one they prefer.
  • Both players sink all their pool balls into the pockets until just the 8 ball is left. The first player to sink the 8 ball is the winner.
    • If a player inadvertently sinks a ball of the other player's, it counts to the other player's benefit.
    • If a player inadvertently sinks the 8 ball before all their other balls are in, they lose.
    • If a player scratches on the 8 ball, they automatically lose as well.
