Snooker is one of the most popular billiards games in the world. Not only do you need skill shooting balls into pockets, you also need strategy.
- " I like 3D Live Snooker because it is extremely easy to play, and it's great fun. It contains hours of fun, and it's a small game. It doesn't look like a huge hit, and it isn't made by any HUGE companies, but it has a larger limit of fun, than any other game i have come across. I recommend this to all who like snooker/pool/billiard games, and even those who are interested in easy to play games." – Nathan Hillyer, 3D Live Snooker Player
Snooker is played with 15 red balls (10 reds for Short Snooker rule) and 6 'colors' and a 'white' cueball. Each red is worth 1 point, yellow 2 points, green-3, brown-4, blue-5, pink-6 and black-7.
While there are reds on the table, the ball you have to shoot at alternates between reds and colors, until there are no reds on the table. When only colors remain, the balls must be potted in ascending numerical value. When there are reds on the table, and a new striker approaches the table, the first ball to shoot at is always red.
Fouls occur when you hit the wrong balls first and result in a 4 point increase in your opponents' socre. Higher foul points are awarded for color balls. Missing balls completely or pocketing the wrong balls also result in foul points. When all balls are pocketed, the player with the highest score wins.
