Where to play pool?

Pool may seem like a complicated game, but you just have get used to it... First off, someone breaks... Someone breaking is when the balls (strips and solids) are in a triangular form, and someone hits it with the white ball... If a ball (strips or solids doesn't matter) goes in, you continue your turn, but if one does not, its the opposite players turn. The turn after breaking, is the turn in which you determine who is strips, who is solids. Because, which ever one of thos balls that goes in, becomes the player who hits it ins type of ball... For an example, your solids, you want to get the solid balls, and only solids, in. If you get the other players ball in, its their turn. But if you get your ball, and the other players its still yours. Unless you hit theirs first. Also, if you get the white ball in, it is the end of your turn, and the other player gets to put it no matter where on the table. But if you get your ball and the white ball in, its the same thing except you must replace the ball you got in on the table. Once all your balls are gone, you have to try and get the 8 ball in.. But if you get it in before all your balls are gone you lose. And that's the game!
