How to Play "Rummy" Pool with Poker Pool Balls

In the billiard game of Rummy, the object is to be the first player to go out of the game by pocketing two groups of balls, then scoring points from each ball remaining in the opponent’s hand.

It is played as follows:

  • Players can lag or toss a coin to determine their positions in the rotation.
  • A player indicates (calls) the object ball and pocket before shooting.
  • Players continue shooting in rotation, taking turns after missing a shot.
  • One group of two and of three can be melded by using balls of the same value or sequences of the same suit.
  • 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.
  • A player taking the last turn of the game shoots until pocketing the winning hand, or misses two shots.
