Carrom Pool is played on a table with discs and cue sticks. The game is also known as carom billiards in some regions of the world.
The equipment needed for this sport includes:
- A pool cue (sometimes called a stick or bat) to strike the ball with;
- A nine-ball rack is used to rack up all fifteen balls into their respective spots before play begins;
- Triangle for keeping track of whose turn it is and where each player should place their disc after taking their shot
How to Play
- Set up the table. The first step to playing any carrom game is to set up your board and pieces. There are two ways to do this:
- Place all eight white marbles in their starting positions on one side of the board (the “kitchen”). Then, put all 16 red marbles in their starting positions on the other side of the board (the “bedroom”).
- If you prefer, you can also leave out four white marbles from each set so that there are only four left over at each end when everything else has been placed correctly. This gives players more opportunities for shots during matches because they won’t run out as quickly as they would otherwise!
- Place two wooden discs behind each set of five balls; these act as bumpers and prevent stray shots from ricocheting off into infinity while also keeping everything within easy reach for easy access during gameplay without having too much movement involved during turns or between shots themselves since nothing needs moving once its initial position has been established appropriately beforehand.
Tips and Tricks
- To use the cue stick, you must stand at one of the four corners of your carrom board. You can then hit any other object in play with it–the disc, a puck or another player’s piece–and send them back to your opponent’s end of their playing surface.
- If you’re unsure where to aim your shot, try using an angle that will send your opponent’s pieces flying out of bounds as far away from their goal as possible (called “side-shooting”).
- There are several ways you can score points during a game: hitting any of your pieces into their goal area, knocking off one or more discs from their stack, hitting two pucks together on top of each other so they fall off in opposite directions simultaneously (called “double-caroms”); and knocking down all three stacks at once (called “triple-caroms”).
The game of Carrom Pool is a great way to spend time with friends, family.
Carrom Pool is an excellent game for the whole family. It’s easy to learn and fun for all ages, perfect for parties or rainy days at home.
The object of Carrom Pool is to get your pieces into your opponent’s goal by hitting them with your discs (also known as “chips”). You can only hit one chip at a time, and you can’t hit any other balls in the process–so think carefully before shooting!
