The default game rules pretty much follow these rules from the English Pool Association:
You can change the 8-ball rules in the game menus – ‘Set Rules’.
Straight Pool Rules
Basically, each ball potted scores you 1 point. Any ball can be potted at any time – including the black. If you foul – miss all balls or go in off – then you’ll lose 1 point. The table will re-rack once there are less than 2 object balls on the table. If the cue ball or remaining object ball are near the triangle, they will be moved on re-rack.
We’re not playing strict rules, so you don’t have to nominate balls and pockets, as this slows the game down and makes flukes illegal – where’s the fun in that?
Break: add top spin for a better break.
Ranking: To become Rank #1 you’ll have to win some of the tournaments more than once.
