The equipment required for a game of billiards is a table that measures 12 feet by 6 feet with 6 pockets. It is played with one red ball and two white cue balls, one of which would have a small black spot whereas the other one will not.
The tapered sticks are used to strike the cue balls with a tip that is called a cue. Other accessories for billiards are rest, a full-butt and a half-butt that is used to rest the cue to extend the playing lengths or to hit long shots.
A singles game of billiards is generally played rather than doubles. Each turn that a player takes is called a break, followed by a series of strikes to the cue ball, eventually resulting in a declared winner. When the cue ball knocks another ball into a pocket, it is known as potted.
