Billiards is a term used to describe all sports involving a cue, though it’s most often used as a stand in for snooker. This is a game that came to be in the 19th century, when British army officers were in search of a means of passing the time when they were stationed in India. If you’re familiar with pool, then snooker isn’t much different: there are 21 colored balls to pot, including 15 reds. They must all be potted in the correct sequence in order to clear the table. The winning player is the one with the most points at the end of the frame (when the black is potted). You'll need good hand-eye coordination, and planning ahead is crucial to success in any billiards game. Play billiards now on GamePix!
