Balls are racked like a normal 9 ball rack. The 1 ball is in front. The rest of the balls can be in any location. On the break three balls must hit a rail.
On every turn the player must hit the 1 ball. As in 9 ball, the cue ball or an object ball must hit a rail after contact.
If the 1 ball is pocketed it is respotted. If any other ball is pocketed it also must be spotted. If more than one ball is pocketed during a shot, the ball that was pocketed first is spotted then the second ball is spotted behind it.
If a player fails to make a good hit or scratches, then that player receives a point. When the player receives 5 points (or however many points are decided beforehand) then that player loses.
When a player fouls the player who goes before him/her has ball in hand. If the player fouls out then the player who goes before him/her receives a bonus of losing a point off their score. If they have 0 then their score is -1. If a cue ball goes in a pocket then it's ball in hand for the player who shot before him/her.
