Overview

Carrom is a popular indoor game, believed to have originated in India in the 18th century. Widely played across the Indian subcontinent, Carrom requires a good sense of angles and superlative precision and concentration. It was once played − mostly by children and ladies − for amusement, but now it is being played at competitive level in an organized manner.

Objective

Carrom is played on a square polished plywood board with a striker made of hard plastic and small circular wooden pieces called carrom men.

The basic objective of carrom is to use the striker with a flick of the finger to drive the carrom men into any of the four corner pockets. The game is about pocketing the carrom men and the queen before the opponent, and scoring maximum points to win. Know more about this game and its laws by reading further.

Team Size

Carrom is either played singles or doubles in men’s and women’s category. In fact, this is one of those few board games where doubles is allowed. Unlike other indoor games, there are no mixed doubles team. As obvious, the maximum team size is two when playing a game.

Participants from various countries form teams for major tournaments or championships conducted across the globe.
