Pool 8 is a game for two players played on a table with seven solid colored balls, seven striped balls and one black ball. The object of pool is to use a cue stick and a white cue ball to hit your set of balls (either striped or solid) into the table pockets. The first player to hit all of his balls into the pockets must then pocket the black (8) ball to win the game.
Players alternate turns. If during a player's turn, he pockets one of his balls, he continues playing. But if the player fails to pocket one of his balls or pockets one of his opponent's balls by accident, then it becomes the other player's turn. If at any time, either player accidentally pockets the white cue ball, it becomes the other player's turn.
The game starts with all balls (except for the white cue ball) placed in a triangle. One player "breaks" the balls using the white cue ball. If during the break, that player sinks a striped ball, he will continue to pocket striped balls for the rest of the game. If he sinks a solid ball during the break, solids will be his set of balls for the rest of the game. If he sinks both a striped and a solid during the break, he can choose which set of balls he wishes to pocket during the game.
