Billiards is a game typically played on a table with six pockets, a cue stick, and sixteen balls (one white cue ball and fifteen object balls). The game can be played in a variety of ways, but the most common is 8-ball (also known as "stripes and solids"). The goal of the game is to pocket all of the object balls of one's designated group (stripes or solids) and then legally pocket the 8 ball.
The earliest known form of billiards was played in France during the 15th century. The game was played on a wooden table with a leather-covered hole in the center and balls made of hardwood. By the late 17th century, the game had become popular in England and America, and the modern version of the game was invented in the 19th century.

Pool and billiards are two different types of cue sports. Pool, also known as pocket billiards, is played on a table with six pockets and uses 16 balls—a cue ball and 15 numbered object balls. Billiards is played on a larger table with no pockets and three balls—a cue ball and two object balls. The main goal of pool is to sink all of the object balls into the pockets, while the main goal of billiards is to use the cue ball to rebound the two object balls into each other.
Racking for billiards is the process of setting up the balls at the beginning of a game. To properly rack a set of billiard balls, place the one ball in the center of the triangle, the two ball at the back of the triangle, the three ball in the middle of the side of the triangle, and the four, five, and six balls in the corner of the triangle. The remaining balls should be placed randomly around the triangle.
