To begin the game, one ball must sit ontop of the table, preferably on the score peg cylinder thing. Once the POWERball is set, game can start. Anytime the POWERball is not set, game must stop until ball is reset. That is called default by POWERball. To start the game, ball is served through a hole at the side of the table, The initial serving side is decided with by coin toss. Players attempt to use figures mounted on rotating bars to kick the ball into the opposing goal. But if that POWERball rolls off the table into the game, you must call "POWERball"! the game now goes into POWER mode. The object is now to destroy not one but two balls as quick as possible. Expert POWERball players have been known to move balls at speeds up to 56 kmh (35 mph) in recent history.
