Description of The Sims Pool

What does pool have in common with the seminal first-person shooter Doom? Id Software co-founder John Carmack once told an interviewer about his inspiration for the game’s name: “There is a scene in ‘The Color of Money’ where Tom Cruise shows up at a pool hall with a custom pool cue in a case,” the programmer recalled. “‘What do you have in there?’ asks someone. ‘Doom,’ replies Cruise with a cocky grin.”

You too can hope to carry doom in a pool cue case while defeating your opponents in The Sims Pool. As in The Sims Bowling, you can Play one-off matches, engage in a pass-and-play contest with a human opponent, or Create your own Sim and improve his friendship aspiration through victories against Sim opponents. Choose from 8-ball (sink all of the solids or stripes and finish with the 8-ball) or 9-ball (sink nine balls in numerical order), with the opportunity to practice either one any time.
Life and Pool: Intertwined

After a night of shooting pool, your Sim heads home to check out the new toys added to her house — such as an arcade machine or a videogame system — and see if she has any new life opportunities. She might Get a chance for a better job, or perhaps another Sim will offer her an old car that she can use or sell. Depending on your decision, your Sim gains either aspiration points or Simoleons before going back to the pool hall.

At the pool hall, your success defeating opponents earns aspiration points, while finishing the 15 challenges pockets much-needed Simoleons. The challenges run the Gamut from taking two shots to knock in two balls to sinking four balls with just one shot. You can also visit your trophy case any time you want and peruse your awards for winning a certain number of games, pulling off perfect games, and more. Just don’t Go for the one given to the player who scratches five times in one game.
