-- 8-ball Pool is one of the most popular billiard games played around the world.
The object of the eight-ball Pool game is for one player to pocket their set of assigned balls 1-7 (solids) or 9-15 (stripes), and then to legally pocket the 8-ball.
-- 9-ball Pool is played with nine balls numbered 1-9 plus the cue ball. With each shot, the cue ball must first contact the lowest ball on the table or it is a foul. A player's turn continues until the player misses, fouls, or wins the game by sinking the 9-ball.
The game ends when a player legally sinks the 9-ball or when a player fouls out.
