Top 7 Billiard Games to Play on a Standard Pool Table (Part 4)

Welcome back to our list of top 7 billiard games to play on your gaming table. If you missed our posts on the first three top pool games,  feel free to check out our gaming table blog archive. Moving on to number 4, lets add a challenging pool game. 

  1. Bank Ball

Just like its name, bank ball requires every shot be banked off at least one pool table rail.  This game requires skill and patience, but can be a welcome challenge to your home pool game or out at your favorite play spot.

To play, you rack and break like normal.  Bank ball is based on points, where you score one point for each ball shot that hits at least one cushion before it sinks.  Each ball you are shooting is called the “object” ball and you cannot touch any other balls to get the point.  If you sink another ball after the shot, that does not count.  First player, or team to 8 wins the game.

Whether you are playing bank ball on your home pool table or out at a bar on a standard pool table, this game is a great addition to your wheelhouse.

If you don’t happen to have a gaming table at home or looking to expand your game room furniture, we might have the best pool table for you at a great price.
