8 ball pool miniclip It would be nice if the timer in between shots was a bit longer. Also when you make a ball on the break it should be that type of ball you shoot next, not an open table. I practically grew up in a pool hall and never heard of the way these game rules are set up. They made up some rules I am not use to. Some flaws in this game but it is fun, needs some work on the real rules of the game. Oh, and if you scratch trying to make the 8 ball and don't make it, you lose, it's not ball in hand so the next person is allowed to shoot giving the person that scratched possibly another chance. That's the way eight ball rules are you scratch on the 8 ball, YOU LOSE, PERIOD!!!
