A pool table is a fun object available in The Sims series, though only The Sims included it as a base-game object. The Sims: Superstar included a more expensive pool table. In The Sims 2, pool tables returned in the University, FreeTime and Apartment Life expansion packs. In The Sims 3, pool tables returned in The Sims 3: Showtime.
While prices vary from game to game, a pool table is expensive. A pool table fulfills the fun need and improves Room/Environment slightly.
In The Sims, a pool table was available in the base game, costing §4,200. Superstar added another pool table. Up to two Sims can play on the same table.

The Sims 2Edit
In The Sims 2, pool tables appear in the University, FreeTime and Apartment Life expansion packs. They are cheaper than in The Sims or The Sims 3, but are still expensive, costing between §1788 and §2000.
A pool table can be used by Sims who are teens and older. Up to four Sims can play; if three or four are playing, the Sims form sides. Selectable Sims can join a game if the player clicks on the table and selects "Join (NAME)", and Sims on the lot can be asked to join a game by clicking on them and selecting "Join (NAME)". In addition, Sims on the lot can, and often will, join a game autonomously. Sims playing pool play Eight-ball.
There is a hidden pool playing skill. Sims with high pool playing skill can "Hustle" pool, and have a better chance of successfully performing trick shots. With University, teen Sims can get a scholarship, the Phelps-Wilsonoff Billiards Prize, for high pool playing skill. In FreeTime, playing pool builds enthusiasm for the Games hobby.

The Sims 3Edit
The pool table can be used by Sims who are teens or older. It can be played solo or in groups of up to 4.
The pool table has a Tricks feature which expands on the "trick shots" that were available in The Sims 2. Sims can perform tricks when playing pool. If they succeed, they will get better at pool, but if their tricks go wrong somehow, their skill in pool will decrease.
There are four tricks: 8-Ball Frappe, Shave and a Haircut, Hole in Two and Putt Putt Gnome.
- 8-Ball Frappe - Sims will set up a blender full of billiard balls and attempt to get the white ball inside while the blender is on! If the trick fails, the blender will tip and a few balls will be heading for his/her face!
- Shave and a Haircut – Sims will set up a Xylophone and attempt to hit brush it with the ball and make it into the pocket If the trick fails, the white ball will fall off the table!
- Hole in Two – Sims will set up a plastic cup and attempt to get the ball into the cup, for it to fall backwards and pour it into the pocket for a hole in two! If the trick fails, the ball will fall off the table!
- Putt Putt Gnome – Sims will set up their billiard ball design and attempt to cheat the gnome and get the ball in the pocket. If the trick fails, Mr. Gnome will spin and whip the ball back in your face!
There are two pool tables in Showtime. They are Side Pocket Pool Table and Luxtacular Ultra Deluxe Pool. They cost §4950 and §5950 respectively.
