Rules of Online Carrom Game
Objective of the Online Carrom
The objective of online carrom Game is to score points by sinking your pieces (also known as carrom men) into one of the four corner pockets on the board using a striker. The player with the most points at the end of the game is declared the winner.
Online carom is typically played on a square board that is 29 inches in length and 29 inches in width. The board is divided into a 20-inch by 20-inch square, with a 2-inch border around the edge. The playing surface is made of wood, with the corners being slightly elevated to create a pocket for the pieces to be sunk.
There are nine pieces in online carom, which are referred to as carrom men. The pieces are typically made of wood or plastic and are usually divided into two different colors (black and white). The striker, which is used to shoot the carrom men, is also included.
The Starting Position
The carrom men are arranged in a specific formation at the start of the game. The white carrom men are placed at the center of the board, forming a circle around the red queen (if used), while the black carrom men are placed around the outside of the white carrom men.
The Order of Play
The game is played between two players, with each player taking turns shooting the striker and attempting to sink their carrom men into the pockets. The player who shoots first is determined by a coin toss or another method agreed upon by the players.
The Shooting Technique
To shoot the striker, the player must place it on any part of the baseline and flick it using their finger. The striker must touch both lines of the baseline before hitting any carrom men. If the striker does not touch both lines of the baseline or hits any carrom men before hitting the baseline, the player’s turn is forfeited.
Sinking a Carrom Man
If a player sinks one of their carrom men, they get to shoot again. If they sink one of their opponent’s carrom men, their turn ends. If the player sinks the red queen (if used) and has already sunk one of their own carrom men, they get bonus points.
The Foul Rules
If the player sinks the striker or the opponent’s carrom men, their turn ends, and they must return one of their previously sunk carrom men to the board. If the player sinks one of their own carrom men and one of their opponent’s carrom men in the same shot, their turn ends, and they must return one of their previously sunk carrom men to the board.
The End of the Game
The game ends when all of the carrom men have been sunk, or when a previously agreed-upon score has been reached. The player with the most points at the end of the game is declared the winner.
