Carrom Is Being Played With Some Official Regulations

Author : Webmaster Carromgear

Carrom game is like similar to the billiards in which participant need to hit their carrom coins with a flicked disc called striker and put them into pocket. This game requires careful planning, skill and visualization abilities. 2-4 players can play this and enjoy together. Generally the match will be lasting between 20 to 30 minutes. There are some standard rules to play this game that will dictate:
• How to set up the game?
• What are the playing techniques?
• What become foul while playing?
• How to get success in game?
Game set up
Keep the carrom board on a horizontal and flat level surface. When there are only 2-players participating in games, both need to sit opposite from each other and ensure that they are sitting between two opposite quadrant of the board. If there are 4 participants in the game, then each quadrant will be engaged by individual player.
Place the white and black carrom coins in the center of the board in the normal arrangement. Position the red queen in the center and the white piece around it in Y shape, let the black piece fill the gaps. Most of the companies are manufacturing the board in such a way that it has a pattern template applied on board’s center for easy understanding of the participants.
Playing techniques of the game
In order to decide who is going to play first, toss a coin. The participant who won the toss will keep the striker on two base lines within his quadrant. Once that player strikes with a striker to break the arranged pieces, he/she can continue striking until he fails to put a piece in pocket. An excellent strategy of the game includes hitting the pieces of your adversary in unfavorable locations when sinking yours.
Prior to pocket the final carrom coin, any of the players have to sink the red queen and instantly after pocketing that, the same performer have to sink one more of his piece. This process generally called as cover the queen. However, if the performer not succeeds to put one of his pieces immediately after red coin, then the red queen will be placed back on the center of the board.
Fouls in carrom
Some of the common fouls in carrom are:
• It becomes foul, if you are hitting the striker which is not contacting both base lines.
• If you sink the striker in pocket then you have to give one of your pieces back.
• If you pocket opponent's pieces then it will result a lost turn for you.
• If you shoot the striker with any part of your hand above the quadrant border, then it will result in a mislaid turn.
Succeeding the game
The player who has pocked his final piece and previously covered the red queen will be called as a winner. In a further distinction, the player who has won will get one point for every piece which is left by his opponent on the board and 3 points for sinking the queen. A number of games are played and the player who first reaches 25 points will win the competition.
