A brief about carrom

Among many indoor games, carrom is one of India's most popular, exciting and unique tabletop games that originated in the 18th century. Initially, it was played by families and friends for amusement, but it has evolved considerably over the years and is now played at competitive levels. Playing carrom requires a fine sense of angles and excellent concentration and accuracy.

Carrom is played on a polished square plywood board with a hard plastic striker to hit and pocket the carrom men (small circular wooden pieces). The primary objective of this game is to drive the carrom men and the queen into the four corner pockets with a flick of the finger before your opponents do it. While doing so, you earn points. Scoring the maximum points makes you the winner of exciting cash prizes.
