Post RULES OF CARROM
* Sinking the striker costs you one piece and your turn. But, if you sink a piece in the same shot, then two come up and you shoot again.
* After sinking the striker, your opponent places the due piece(s) within the center circle. If you haven't sunk one yet, you owe one.
* If while shooting for the queen you also sink one of your pieces, the queen is automatically covered, no matter which went first.
* If a piece jumps off the board, it is placed on the center spot. If pieces land on end or are overlapping, they are left that way.
* If the center spot is partially covered when replacing the queen or a jumped piece, the piece should cover as much red as possible. If totally covered, the piece is placed opposite the next player behind the red spot.
* If you sink your opponent's piece, you lose your turn. If you sink their last piece, you lose the board and three points.
* If you sink your last piece before the queen, you lose the board, three points and one point for each of your opponent's pieces left.
* If the striker does not leave both lines, go again. You get three tries to break before losing your turn.

Post Re: RULES OF CARROM
There are quite simple rules in the carom game and knowing them would be very useful to get started with the game.

1) Two to four people can play carom at a time, if two of them are playing then they have to sit opposite side of the board, while four can occupy all the four side of the board. Partner should sit opposite to each other. As an exception even three can play against each other for points.

2) Follow the rules for arranging the coins; arrange the carom men on the centre circle of the carom board, with the red queen at centre. The white should be arranged in such a way as to form "y" shape with two sides aiming directly towards corner pockets.

3) Each player sits on his side and can strike from that side only.

4) When placing the striker on the board to strike, it should touch both the base line or on end circle covering it completely, or not touching it at all. The striker should not touch the diagonal arrow.

5) Striking style depends on individual comfort, which ever grip is comfortable is fine as long as you flick the striker and don't push it. For forward shots, you can either use your index finger, middle finger or scissors shot. Before shooting, touch the striker with your nail to be sure that it's on line. This will prevent you form hurting your finger and will improve your accuracy.

6) For back shots you can use your thumb or scissors style.

7) Except your hand, any other part of body should not cross the imaginary diagonal line. Also make sure that only your wrist can touch the board.

8} The red queen can be pocketed after sinking the first piece but before your last one. After pocketing the queen, you must sink any of your carom men, covering it in the next shot, or else queen will be returned back to the center point of the board.

9) Once the queen is covered, who ever clears all their carom men first wins the game.

10) The winner of the board collect one point for each carom men left by the opponent at the end and three points if the queen is covered by winner itself.
