Whereas for snooker, there 15 red balls and 6 other colors i.e, yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black. The main objective of this game is to pot a red ball and then pot a color ball. If the player fails, the opponent gets a chance. The opponent has to pot a red ball and then pot a color ball. The points are based as following: red ball – 1 point, yellow ball – 2 points, green ball – 3 points, brown ball – 4 points, blue ball – 5 points, pink ball – 6 points, black ball – 7 points.
