The aim of 8 ball multiplayer mode is for you to defeat your opponent by pocketing the black 8 billiard ball. Here, the players are supposed to pocket a set of balls only, with pocketing of any other ball being a foul. When this happens, your opponent is given two chances of shooting. Of the fifteen balls, the solid- color balls that numbered 1-7 are supposed to be pocket by one player whereas the stripes 8-15 by the opponent. An 8 ball multiplayer winner is the one who legally pockets all his balls, and then pocket the black afterwards.
To begin, the ball are first arranged in a triangular manner with the black being located at the center. The opening break in 8-ball multiplayer will be legal if neither the black nor the white are pocketed at the first shot. In addition, one of the other solid or stripped balls must hit the rail or pocket. If at the first break no ball is pocketed, then the opponent takes over wit h options of pocketing any ball he wants. The first to pocket any kind of ball type continues doing so until the ends. Fouls happen if a player pockets the white, black, or any of the opponents’ balls, or delays for more than 60 seconds. The game ends when a player pockets the black, if during the game the one who does that is the loser.
