Crash Pool - Set a time e.g. 2 hours. Set the balls up in the triangle - break – then start potting the balls in to any coloured pocket, until one is missed – that is the game over – the balls which have been potted are counted and that goes towards a score – the balls are then re-racked and the game starts again – this is repeated until the 2 hours are up. At the end of the 2 hours all scores are counted and the winner is the one with most balls down.
the yellow balls are removed from the table thus leaving 16 balls to play with. This is unique to OCTAPOOL, as it allows 3 persons to play. The object of the game is to pot the coloured balls into their corresponding coloured pockets, with the black ball being potted last into it’s own black pocket at the end of the game.
Playing for points (21Balls) – Set up the 21 coloured balls in to the triangle – yellow – blue – red –and green plus the black ball. Pick your colour. Break off from any point on the table, but must strike your own coloured ball first.
The method of the game is to pot your own coloured balls in to their own coloured pocket, in doing so you will get 5 points- if you pot an opponents ball or pot your own ball in to the wrong coloured pocket you will lose 5 points. 10 points are gained for the black ball- Points to aim for is 25 plus 10 for the black = 35 - for four people playing.
For two people playing the game of Octapool they will choose two colours each and the aim is 50 points plus 10 for potting the black = 60 Points. Again if you pot your opponent’s ball, or pot your own ball in to a wrong coloured pocket then you forfeit 5 points.
At the start of the game a coloured disc is selected to determine the colour and position of play: i.e. Blue 91) Red (2) Yellow (3) Green (4). All the balls to be set out in the triangle including the black (21 balls) A separate triangle is used if three people are playing (16 balls) The balls must be played in to their corresponding coloured pockets, with the black finally being played into the black pocket or the player’s own coloured pocket. The black pocket can also be used as a ‘free’ pocket where selected coloured balls can be pocketed. The balls in the triangle shall be placed on the centre of the table with the black ball on its spot.
The white can be played from any position on the table. The player who breaks off (blue balls) can place the white anywhere on the table but must hit the blue ball first. At the break, 2 balls must hit the cushion; if a ball goes down from the break it is not a foul, with the exception of the black or white. If the white goes down the next player has 2 shots, but 2 shots don’t carry. If the black goes down at the break, it is a re-rack. Combination shot is allowed. 2 persons playing can combine two colours as one and can pot either colour into their corresponding coloured pockets.
At the start of the game a coloured disc is selected to determine the colour and position of play: i.e Blue (1) - Red (2) - Yellow (3) - Green (4). All the balls to be set out in the triangle including the black. (21 balls) A separate triangle is used if three players play. (16 balls) the balls must be played in to their corresponding coloured pockets(s). the black finally being potted in to it’s own black pocket after the player has potted all his own coloured balls. That then determines the winner of the game.
When a foul is committed by the white going down, the white would be replayed from the spot that you break off from at the start of the game. if that spot is occupied, the ball will then be replaced between the cushion and the ball holding the spot, as near as possible to it. When you make a foul stroke , the next player goes on to the table. If three were playing, you would miss two shots, and if four were playing, you would miss three shots. The winner stays on until the next game on the board is doubles -Threes - or Fours. The player would then put his/her name back on the board as holding the table for singles. The playing rules are the same as UK Pool Rules.
