These series of "Game Rules' provide rules of many different games for the pool table. The rules here have been simplified from the official versions - to make them a little easier to understand.
There are other games that have been invented, copyrighted and generally available to the playing public. Web searches will turn these up and the rules printed out for use.
Tactically, the cue ball can be moved a better position by making a legal shot at a ball that is in a bad location (thereby improving it) and rolling into a better shooting position.
This game requires balls to be pocketed as quickly as possible. Another person uses a stop watch to track the time and to track penalty times. The player with the shortest time wins.
Any number of players.
Regular set of balls.
Standard random rack with 8 in the middle.
Breaker determined by local rules (coin, lag, card draw, etc.)
The rack is broken with a standard break shot.
As soon as the cue ball is hit for the break, the timer starts.
Cue ball must come to a complete stop before shooting.
Any ball may be pocketed, but the 8 ball must be last.
