At Kickoff, we bring to you an exciting & refreshing new game of snooker with a twist. In SnookBall, which is a combination of Snooker & Football, you can challenge your football tricks on a giant snooker table by using your feet to kick the ball into the table pockets.
To start the game, the object balls are arranged inside of a triangular rack.
One person is chosen to shoot first, using the cue (white)ball to break the object-ball rack apart. If the shooter who breaks, fails to make a legal break then the opponent can call for a re-rack and become the breaker, or elect to play from the current position of the balls.
Selection of Object Balls
During the beginning of gameplay, one of the players can select “solids” or “stripes” as their group of object balls by legally pocketing a ball from that particular group.
A player will continue to shoot until committing a foul or failing to legally pocket an object ball. In the case of a foul or miss, it is a player on the opposing team’s turn.
Pocketing the 8 ball
Once all of a player’s or team’s object balls are pocketed, they may attempt to sink the 8 ball. To win, the player (or team) must first designate which pocket they plan to sink the 8 ball into and then successfully pot the 8 ball in that called pocket. If the 8 ball falls into any pocket other than the one designated or is knocked off the table, or a foul (see below) occurs and the 8 ball is pocketed, this results in loss of game.
Any of the following results in a game win:
A player legally pockets the 8 ball into a designated pocket, after all of that player’s object balls have been pocketed.
A player pockets the 8 ball on the break.
The opponent illegally pockets the 8 ball.
The opponent knocks the 8 ball off the table.
The opponent commits a foul on a shot that successfully pockets the 8 ball.
Hitting the 8 ball or an opponent's ball first
If the white ball does not hit any balls
When a player commits any of the following fouls, the opponent can place the white ball wherever they want, although they only get one shot
