Definition of Colored Balls
Colored Balls is a billiards term that is a part of Snooker Terminology.
In a snooker ball set, the colored balls are all of the balls that are not reds or a cue ball.
The colored balls are normally the object balls after a red has been potted, and when a colored ball is potted, the colored balls are normally re-spotted.
After all reds have been potted, the colored balls become the object balls in the following order:
-yellow ball (2 pts)
-green ball (3 pts)
-brown ball (4 pts)
-blue ball (5 pts)
-pink ball (6 pts)
-black ball (7 pts)
In Blackball, the colored balls are sets of red and yellow balls. These correspond with the North American suits of stripes and solids.
See: color ball, colors, coloured balls, colours, colour balls for more on the meaning of "Colored Balls".
