Each color ball in snooker is worth a different number of points with the highest value ball being the black ball, which is worth seven points. The red ball is worth one point, yellow is worth two points, green is worth three points, brown is worth four points, blue is worth five points and pink is worth six points.
In the game of snooker the red balls must be hit into a pocket first. Once a red ball has been potted, the player has the opportunity to try and pot a colored ball of their choice. If they are successful, they can then pot another red ball followed by another color. Once all the red balls are potted in the pockets, the players must then try and pot the colored balls in order of their value, from lowest to highest.
