Quick information & rules for playing carrom.
Place your carrom striker between the two striking lines (baseline) of your sides. You may also place your striker within the two circles situated at either end of your baseline.
How to Play
If the player pots a carom piece they play again, after replacing the carrom striker between their baseline. This continues until they fail to pot one of their pieces, then it is the opponents turn.
Carrom pieces can only be struck directly if it is not touching the player’s baseline or situated behind the base line. If this is the case, the player must hit the carrom piece by rebounding the carrom striker off any side of the board or any other carrom piece on the board in a forward direction.
The Red Queen
If the red piece is pocketed, the player must then pocket one of their own carrom pieces. Should the player fail to pocket a piece, then the queen must be replaced in the centre of the carrom board.
