We play a variation on the game described. We play with all fifteen pool balls. We remove the 15 and 16 peas from the bottle. Two peas are drawn by each player. Up to seven players can play. The lower of your two peas is used to determine the shooting order otherwise the game is the same except it is played to fifteen with the fifteen being the wild ball.

i have friends over and we play this game alot,yes the rules are similar to nine ball,but you use all 15 balls,sinking them in order 1 to 15.if you pick the five you have to run the balls in order to that  number for the win.other players pick cards for their turn.sinking someone else,s ball(pea) eliminates them,but they still get their turn to butcher someone else.don't know what the 16 is for though.we play for loonies in canada.have fun playing if you understand what i wrote.

i forgot to mention in my write up that if there is no winner, the game continues with a new rack and new pea numbers and another dollar added to the pot by all the players.the more the merrier.the game could take up to half a dozen rounds depending on how many are butchered each round.hope i helped you out.

in a previous comment the writer states that he received a pea pool game with balls numbered from 1 to 16.  I have never heard of a 16 ball.

I can answer most questions regarding rules and strategy in the following billiard games:

Straight pool; Bank pool; one-pocket; 9-ball; 8-ball; straight billiards and three cushion billiards.


Pool is undoubtedly my avocation. I have been playing pool and billiards for about fifty years and am an avid student of the game. I am usually a player in one or more pool leagues.
