Combination Pool is played with 15 balls and a cue ball.
There are no set of balls, and each player can shoot at any ball on the table.
The goal is to be first to legally pocket 8 balls.
The key rule is that legally pocketed ball must be done with combination shot
- a shot in which a ball is pocketed by an object ball (cue ball > object ball > pocketed ball).
Any ball pocketed on a foul is spotted.
If the cue ball is scratched, it is a foul, and the cue ball must be spotted. Any balls that were sunk on that shot are spotted as well.
