The game begins with 16 balls on the table: the cue (white) ball, the 8-Ball ( black ball), 7 striped balls, and 7 solid balls.

Once you have pocketed all the balls of your type (solid / stripe), you can only then pocket the 8-Ball. The player who pockets the 8-Ball first wins.

Game Rules

If the ball types have been decided and you then pocket more than one ball and they are different types (Solid & Stripe) then you need to make the decision of which type you want to play. If you sink the 8 Ball (black) before you have sunk all your other balls, your opponent wins.
