There are 2 ball colors in 8-ball billiards.
Solids have a single color throughout.
Stripes have a stripe of color over white.
The player who pockets the first ball takes on the color of the ball they pocket. The other player takes on the opposite color automatically.
You can only pocket balls of your own color after that point.
Use the guidelines to estimate where the ball you target might go.
Be the first to pocket all the balls of your color to get a chance at sinking the 8-ball.
Shoot the balls into the pockets using the cue ball.
How well the cue ball can sink the other balls depends on the force of your shot and the location where you hit the cue ball.

In games against the computer, you automatically make the first move. If you don’t pocket a ball at the start of the game, the computer gets a turn.
In versus human games, Player 1 goes first. Decide between you and your playmate who gets this designation.
The two players alternate until someone pockets a ball. The design of the ball they pocket determines if they are stripes or solids.
The other player takes on the opposite ball type.
There are 3 faults in this version of 8-ball pool.
Pocketing the cue
Pocketing the 8-ball prematurely
Pocketing a ball not of your color
Each time a player commit a fault, their turn ends.
The opponent gets to move the ball to any location on the field.
You also lose 20 points each time you commit a fault.
Your score depends on the number of balls you pocketed.
Each pocketed ball is worth 20 points.
Temper the strength of your shots so that the cue ball nudges the target balls in the right direction. This is a game of finesse, not power.
Use the guidelines to help you aim your shots. Try to get the target balls moving as close to the nearest hole as possible.
The game is suited for players who like pool games.
