Under most pool game rules, if the cue ball fails to hit the object ball, or it hits and a ball then does not go in a pocket or hit a rail it is a foul. The other player will get ball in hand.

How do you play 8 ball?

There are several ways to play 8 ball. The 8 ball is all black. Balls 1 through 7 are solid colors. Balls 9 through 15 are striped colors. One person has solids the other has stripes. The person who has solids breaks. If a solid colored ball goes into a pocket, he goes again. If not the person with stripes goes. In one version a person has to call the ball and the pocket and hit the balls in a particular order. He says something like, "The 11 ball will hit the 15 ball and put it into this side pocket." Then if he is good, the person hits the 11 ball with the white ball and it hits the 15 ball into the correct side pocket. The person with stripes keeps going until he scratches. A scratch occurs when he accidently hits the white or cue ball into a pocket or he misses a shot. Then the person with solids takes over. If a player at any time knocks the 8 ball into a pocket while he has any of his balls still on the table, he loses. When all of a players balls have been knocked into pockets, then he tries to knock the 8 ball into a pocket. He has to call the 8 ball and the pocket. If he does not hit the 8 ball, he loses. If he knocks the 8 ball into the wrong pocket he loses. If the cue ball goes into a pocket, he loses. If the 8 ball goes into the pocket he called, he wins!
