Introduction:

Welcome to the Snooker Nation Trophy Guide!
Pick up a cue and climb the ranks to become a snooker master!
Snooker Nation Championship is digital snooker at its best.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Online – Play for Cash Match
This step can be done at any time but as we all know, it’s safer to clean up online trophies as soon as possible to avoid issues or server closures.
From the main menu, select “Online” –> “Snooker Hall” and choose to create or join a “Play for Cash” match.

Unluckily, servers are kinda empty, and might be hard to find a lobby, but you can always ask a friend to create one and play together. Once you are in a match, you have to regularly win or ask/hope for the opponent to leave.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Gold Cash Prizes

Step 2: Championship
During this step, begin a Championship and try to become the best snooker player.

From the main menu, select “Championship” and choose “Easy” and “Extended” aim to make it a walk in the park.
To get all the championship related trophies, you will need to win every single match. If you lose, make sure to select “Rematch” and you will replay the same game without avoiding the trophies.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Silver Winner
Gold Machine Beater
Bronze Qualifier
Silver A Solid Start
Silver The Snooker Player Rises
Gold Onwards and Upwards
Gold One More Hurdle
Gold Beat the Best
Gold Snooker World Champion

Step 3: Obtain a break of 147
This step can be tried on every single match of the game as you will need to score 147 points in a row.
Unluckily, this step can require tons of matches and a lot of practice (and a bit of luck as well). 

The best way to go for the Gold Flawless trophy is to set up a Snooker Plus versus match against the lowest level AI and set the extended aim.
Calculate every single shot, try different effects and strengths before shooting, and ALWAYS check where the cue ball goes after the shot (you can see the shadow before shooting) to get the best positioning for your next ball. 

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Bronze 25 to Life
Silver Golden Jubilee
Gold Breaking New Ground
Gold Centurion
Gold Flawless

40-platinum Snooker Master

Snooker Rules for All

NOTE: If you play the “Snooker Plus mode, you will have 2 more colored balls, the Orange one (8 points) and the Purple one (10 points). 
Rules don’t change at all, but you will have a maximum break of 210 points instead of 147. Also, you will need to pot them as well when you need to clear the table at the end of the match.

Cash Prizes Gold
Win a ‘play for cash’ match

This trophy can only be earned online. From the main menu, select “Online” –> “Snooker Hall“.

Now it’s time to join or create a lobby:
– If you create a lobby by pressing the button, make sure to select the “Play for Cash” mode and change the shot timer to “30 seconds” to make it quicker;
– If you join a lobby created by another player, make sure it’s a “Play for cash” match with a low entrance cost.

Unluckily, servers are kinda empty, and might be hard to find a lobby, but you can always ask a friend to create one and play together. Once you are in a match, you have to regularly win or ask/hope for the opponent to leave.

Machine Beater Gold
Beat the AI in versus

This trophy can be combined with the Silver Winner trophy.
If you decide to compete in the championship from the beginning of the game, you will for sure get this trophy once you beat your first opponent.

However, if you decide to get it without competing in the championship, from the main menu, select “Versus” and make sure to set “AI” under the “Human/AI” section.
Now, the only thing left is to choose your opponent (the easiest one to defeat is Sorapong Kitsuwon who is a level 1 AI).

Flawless Gold
Achieve a snooker maximum break of 147

This trophy and all the break related ones may be the platinum breakers as they can be very hard and time-consuming if you don’t know anything about billiard. 

To get this one, you need to reach a maximum break of 147 points. The hardest part is that you have to score them in a row, without failing a single shot and always aiming for the black ball after every red ball.

Luckily here a couple of tips on how to ease a bit this process:

  •  Start a versus match of “Snooker Plus” against the lowest level AI (Sorapong Kitsuwon);
  • Set the aiming type to “Extended“. If this is not enough, you can use a ruler to extend the aiming line;
  • To have a better view of the table, you can switch the camera by pressing the button to aim better.
  • If you have to do the first shot, try to break the red balls and spread them around the table also taking care of the cue ball position after the shot;
  • Try to ALWAYS calculate every single shot by thinking to the next one and positioning the cue ball (white one) close to the ball you want to pot after (Remember that the goal of the game is to pot a red ball and then a color one);
  • ALWAYS think before shooting! Try different solutions, strengths, and effects before making your shot;
  • ALWAYS check the shadow ball you can see before shooting. It indicates the approximate place where the white ball stops after the shot;
  • Use effects but don’t abuse. Also, try not to shoot at maximum strength; 
  • Keep in mind that the color balls have specific positions on the table and they are always placed there after being potted until there are red balls on the table;
  • Try to always aim at the colored balls with the highest score values such as the purple or the orange one;
  • Memorize the order of the final table clean up to place the cue ball in the correct place:
    • Yellow (2 points);
    •  Green (3 points);
    • Brown (4 points);
    • Blue (5 points);
    • Pink (6 points);
    • Black (7 points);
    • Orange (8 points);
    • Purple (10 points).
