How to Play "Progressive 31 Poker Pool" with Poker Pool Balls

In Progressive 31, the object is to be the first player in the rotation to score exactly 31 points for the winning hand.

Here is how to play the game:

  • Players can lag or toss a coin to determine their position in the rotation.
  • Player Number One racks and breaks the balls.
  • A player indicates (calls) the object ball and pocket before shooting.
  • Players continue shooting in rotation, taking turns after missing a shot.
  • The first player that pockets an exact 31 points discontinues shooting. The remaining players in the rotation take their last turn, shooting until scoring 31 points, or missing a shot.
  • The ball highest in value on the table can be used as a tie breaker. Spades are the dominant suit.
  • Scratched marked balls are spotted at the foot of the table. The Cue Ball is placed on or behind the head string. Any ball below the head string can be pocketed.
  • Players place their pocketed balls in the Score Case, on the shelf that matches their position in the rotation, immediately after completing a turn.
  • Players must not score over 31 points, or their hand is invalid.
