The Nine Ball Pool Model is set up as a game of nine-ball (nine balls in a diamond formation with a cue ball), and the player may hit the balls in any order. With normal play (the player selecting "Nine-Ball"), the goal of the game is to sink all of the balls in as little time as possible, with the least number of possible turns, and with the least possible number of scratches (sinking of the cue ball). The player may see these statistics at the bottom-right corner of the play screen and will get a final report upon sinking the last non-cue ball. (The back arrow is a total reset button for the simulation.) This form of play is essentially a free-for-all.
