Pool ball sets come with the standard 16 ball set with numbers and colors designed to allow for a game of billiards. A complete pool ball set will include solid colored balls numbered 1 to 8, and striped balls numbered 9 to 15. The 16th ball in the set is called the “cue” ball. It is a solid white ball. Variations in pool ball sets will include the hue on your colors, but all colors should be standard for traditional play. The font on the numbers will vary based on your personal preference, but should be easy to read and printed in black. Some pool ball sets come with a triangle to aid with racking the balls. Pay attention to the quality of the triangle. Though not essential, some triangles will be made of a stronger material and last longer than others. On the balls, it is important to find a set resistant to cracks or heavy scratching.
