Below youll find a couple suggestions for games to enjoy with others in the Liv community this summer season. The most commonly played pool game in the United States is also the most well-known of the bunch: eight-ball. In this game, two players use the full rack of 15 balls the goal is to pocket all of your own designated balls, either solids, numbered 1 through 7, or stripes, numbered 9 through 15. After all of one players suit are pocketed, they may try to sink the black 8 ball to win the game. In some variations, a player must tell which pocket theyre intending on shooting the 8 ball into before making the shot for it to count as a win. If a player sinks the 8 ball before all their own are off the table or if they scratch when shooting the 8 ball by pocketing the cue ball, that player loses the game. Nine-ball is a rotation type of game, typically played by two players and using only the first nine numbered balls in a set. Created as a diamond-shape when racked with the 9 ball in the center and the 1 ball at the apex and all others randomly placed, the goal is to legally pocket the 9 ball. In order to do that, players must aim the cue shot for whichever is the lowest numbered ball on the table in essence, shooting in numerical order, though top tier players tend to utilize the target ball as a secondary cue. So long as the cue initially makes contact with the lowest numbered ball on the table, any other balls pocketed in that round are fair game. Have you ever played eight-ball or nine-ball before?
