Billiards table is a kind of furniture that colonists can use for recreation (dexterity play). The quality of the billiards table affects the entertainment strength factor, but it has a base value of 130%. It takes up a 3x2 space, plus an area around it (totaling 5x4) which needs to be kept clear for it to become usable. It can be used by 2 colonists at the same time. Playing billiards increases the player's shooting skill at a meager rate.


The billiards table can be built by builders with a construction skill of 6 or above after complex furniture has been researched. It is built with Building Material (steel, wood, plasteel, etc.) 80 Stuff (Wood/Metals/Stone), Wood.png 30 Wood, Cloth.png 80 Cloth ("Stuff" can be metallic, woody, or stony) and 12,000 ticks (3.33 mins).


The recreation power of the billiards table is deceptive. Pawns will change position occasionally while playing by walking around the outside edge of the table, but they cease gaining recreation while moving. This results in a loss of approximately 25% of the recreation gain per unit time versus a recreation item of the same power as all other recreation items are used continuously.

Compared to other recreation items, the billiards table is tied with the poker table with a recreation power of 130 percent, however due to the aforementioned inefficiency, it is actually significantly inferior to it. In fact, it is inferior to a chess table of the same quality and an Excellent quality billiards table is required to compete with the Tube television. However, due to the Recreation Boredom mechanic, rather than replacing these other items, it supplements them as they have different Recreation Types.

The only other contenders for the Dexterity Play that billiards offer are the horseshoes pin and hoopstone ring - notably due to the inefficiency this means that a Good quality billiards table or better is required to replace these most basic recreational items. Thus, billiards should only be made once a skilled constructor is available and given the relatively small improvement over the alternatives, focus should be placed on acquiring other Recreation Types before bothering to build a billiards table.  

The billiards table can only be used by 2 players at a time. All chairs, including stools, dining chair, and armchairs, don't block the exclusion zone around the table.
