Normally, you win if you run out all the designated balls, and the "ghost" wins if you fail to run out. Besides being a motivational tool for stimulating your practice sessions, playing the ghost offers a systematic framework for keeping track of your improvement as well, should you choose to keep records. You can play a race to a certain number of wins, or do the exercise until you have beaten the ghost a certain number of times.
