There is several forms of billiards. I'll go over the most popular.

8 BALL: The object is to sink all the stripes or solids followed by pocketing the 8 ball in the pocket you called or marked.

9 BALL: The object is to pocket the balls in order from 1 to 9, whoever makes the 9 ball in first wins.

14:1(Straight Pool) The object is to pocket balls until you are the first to reach a pre-determined total.
