  • For example, your coin is black but you pocketed a queen and a white coin. Then you have to keep the queen at the center and give the white coin to the opponent. So it becomes an advantage to the opponent.
  • Also, you lose your turn and your opponent gets to play.

Queen in winning the game

  • If all coins are covered by the players at the same time,  then the player covering the queen will win.
  • However, if you cover all your coins but did not cover the queen you still win the black and white carrom.
