How to play Snook­er

  1. Obtain the prop­er equip­ment. Snook­er is played with 22, unnumbered object balls, divided into two groups of 15 red balls, 6 balls of dif­fer­ent col­ours and one white ball (the cue ball). Each ball has a dif­fer­ent point value: red=1, yellow=2, green=3, brown=4, blue=5, pink=6, and black=7.

    Under­stand that you’re try­ing to score a high­er num­ber of points than your oppon­ent by pot­ting the balls, i.e. sink­ing the red and the col­oured balls altern­ately into the table pock­ets.

    Toss a coin to decide who is to play first. The first play­er has to cause the cue ball to con­tact a red ball. If he fails to do this, the oth­er play­er tries.

    The first play­er to cause the cue ball to con­tact a red ball con­tin­ues by pot­ting or touch­ing one of the col­oured balls and then a red ball in sequence until he fails. Then, the turn is moved to the oth­er play­er, who has to pot a red then a col­oured ball in sequence until he fails.

    Con­tin­ue in that man­ner as long as there are still red balls on the table. As long as there are red balls on the table, all the pot­ted col­oured balls return to their ori­gin­al pos­i­tion on the table.

    Pot the low­est value to the highest value col­oured balls in sequence after the red balls run out. From then on, the col­oured balls are no long put back in their ori­gin­al pos­i­tion.
