Rules

The "Eight Ball" game from Game Velvet is a 3D simulation of the most widespread version of billiards. Eight Ball is a game for two players. It was designed to be fun and realistic.

    Players - 2

    Table – 6 pocket table

    Balls – A white ball (the cue ball), 7 solid balls, 7 stride balls, and a black ball (the 8 ball).

    Object of the Game - The player must pocket either kind of balls first and then pocket the 8-ball to win the game.

Groups of Balls

There are two groups of balls: The stripes and the solid ones. There are seven solid-colored balls numbered 1 through 7 and seven striped balls numbered 9 through 15.

If the breaker fails to pocket a ball after the break, the table is still considered "open" until someone legally pockets a ball. If the opening player pockets a ball, it is still that player's turn.

Your group and the opponent's group are shown on the top bar of the game, near the avatars. The balls become transparent as they are pocketed.

Open

At the beginning of the game, one of the two players is chosen randomly for the opening shot. For the opening shot, take a strong shot - if necessary, increase the mouse sensitivity on the options. At least four balls must touch the tables after the opening, OR at least one ball must be pocketed. If it doesn't happen, the opening is seen as a foul and the other player will re-open the game (when this happens, the balls are repositioned to a new shot). Pocketing the cue ball or the 8 ball in the opening also represents a foul. If you pocket one or more balls of the same type (all solid or all stride balls) in the opening, these balls are defined as being in your group.

Fouls

If you commit a foul, your opponent plays on your turn and can place the cue ball anywhere on the table if the groups are already defined. If the groups haven't been defined, then the ball can only be moved on the upper area of the table

Eight Ball game fouls:

  • If you hit the opponent's ball before hitting your own ball with the cue ball (only if the groups are defined).

  • If you hit the 8 ball before another ball; unless you can legally pocket it.

  • While opening, have less than 4 balls reach the cushion walls (including the cue ball), or/and not pocket any balls.

  • If you knock the cue ball off the table.

  • If you pocket the cue ball.

  • If you pocket an opponent's ball.

  • If none of the balls reach the cushion walls or are pocketed while opening a game

Ending the Match

The match ends when a player legally pockets the 8 ball, after all of that player's object balls have been pocketed. It is illegal to pocket the 8 ball before pocketing the other balls.

The game can also end if a player shoots in a way that makes him lose immediately. These moves are:

  • Pocket the 8 ball

  • Knock the 8 ball off the table

  • Fouls when pocketing the 8-ball
