When the game took place indoors, it was originally played on a table covered with a green cloth to simulate a lawn. The word billiards is believed to be derived from the French word billart or billette meaning stick, or perhaps from the French word bille meaning ball. Billiards as a game has been around since the 16th century. Mary, Queen of Scots, is said to have been wrapped on the ceiling of her pool table after her death.

types of billiards

Billiards is used as a kind of umbrella term for several games played on a table top with a cue stick and a table with side bumpers and pockets. The bumpers were derived from low walls placed around the tables to prevent balls from flying off. They were refined as players discovered they could bounce balls off walls, creating a new aspect of the game. The three main styles of billiards are carom billiards – played on a table with no pockets; billiards, which includes a variety of games played at a pocket table; and English billiards and snooker, which require a six-pocket table. However, there are many variants of each.
