Foul? Or No Foul?Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.
Jimmy and John were playing a game of pool. Jimmy broke, but sunk none of the balls. John carefully aimed. He hit the 1 ball, which ricocheted off of the 8 ball and the 8 ball went into the pocket. However Jimmy did not win the game. Why not?
AnswerJimmy and John were playing 9-ball pool. In 9-ball, it is okay if you pot the 8-ball early (providing you hit the lowest ball on your shot). Whereas in regular 8-ball pool, potting the 8-ball early will make you lose the game.
