Carrom – Equipment
Apart from the carrom board itself, one would normally get to see the following equipment when a game is on.
Carrommen − The Carrommen are circular pieces of wood colored black, white, and red. There are nine black, nine white, and one red (queen) carrommen on a board.
Striker − This is also a circular piece, normally made of plastic that is used to strike the carrommen. A striker is bigger in dimension than a carrommen.
Net − Each corner hole is covered from beneath by nets fixed at the bottom of the Carrom board.
Powder − A unique powder made of boric acid is sprayed on the board for players to flick and pocket the carrommen smoothly with the striker.
Stand − The carrom board is placed on a stand so that the game can be played at a comfortable height without the players having to bend their back too much.
Light − A light is hung over the board for better visibility and it produces heat that ensures the powder doesn’t stick to the board.
