Snooker

Snooker is played on a table covered with a green baize and with six holes (pockets) at the four corners and halfway down both sides. The object of the game is to use a white ball (hit with a cue) to knock coloured balls into pockets. The balls are worth different points for each colour from 1 (red) to 7 (Black).

Variations on the game include Pool (smaller table and two sets of balls – stripes and spots); Billiards and Bagatelle.
