About The Carrom Game
Carrom is a game that resembles Pool or Snooker but is much more accessible to the entire family. In South Asia you are likely to find it in many homes and might even spot it being played on the streets by the neighbourhood kids. It’s origins are not certain but over time this game has travelled and is slowly gaining popularity around the world. Competitive Carrom tournaments are now held regularly by the International Carrom Association but it still remains a game for families and friends to enjoy at home, in university dorms or anywhere the mood strikes you.
