Penguin Sniper Billiards Mini-Game in Persona 5 Royal
The billiards mini-game is a side activity in Persona 5 Royal that can be accessed at the Penguin Sniper bar in Kichijoji. One session costs 800 yen.
Billiards Basic Rules and Mechanics
Shots are not made manually and each session plays out like an event only. Playing billiards increases your Technical Rank and successfully performing a trick shot will increase the power of Technical Attacks in battle. In addition, it increases a random social stat of the Protagonist except for Kindness. Saving your game before playing Billiards is essential if you want to boost a specific Social Stat.
How to unlock Billiard Tricks
When you first start playing billiards, you don’t have access to tricks. Unlocking tricks requires playing billiards, building a Proficiency level, and brushing up on books. The first book can be bought but the other one requires performing some steps.
