There are many varieties of each game, especially of carom and pocket billiards. Snooker is performed on the same table and with the equivalent size balls used for English billiards. The game is played with 22 balls, made up of one white ball, 15 red balls, and six estimated colored balls including one yellow 2, one green 3, one brown 4, one blue 5, one pink 6, and one black. The player must first pocket a red ball and then try to pocket any color he may choose, scoring the value of the ball that he has pocketed. He then alternately pockets red and colored balls. Every red ball when pocketed lives in the pocket, while the colors when pocketed, as long as any reds rest on the table, are placed on their particular spots. Play continues until only the six colors remain on the table. Finally, the six colored balls must be pocketed in the order of their values.
