Snooker tables are primarily popular with extreme snooker enthusiasts as the difficulty will increase with table size, and a simple game of snooker can always be played on a standard pool billiards table. However, to truly play the game the way it was intended, the larger snooker table is a must.
Once you've installed a snooker table, you will likely want to look at having a mounted scoring board in order to keep track of your scoring. Snooker is a game of strategy and skill! If you've got the floor space, snooker tables may be the best choice for you. I recommend that you visit a local bar and test drive some snooker tables versus some pool tables to see what you feel more comfortable with.
Snooker is played the same way as pool physically, but is a fair bit different in terms of rules, table size, strategy and the types of balls used. Table sizes come as big as 12' x 6', and can have as many as 8 legs. There are 15 red balls, a cue, and 6 other colored balls (green/yellow/brown/blue/pink/black) that have different points value and meaning. The strategy of snooker is to disallow your opponent from striking the ball he intends.
The winner is the player with the most points from sinking balls and fouls once the table has been cleared.
