Carrom Buying Guide

For playing carom you need :

- Carrom Board
- at least one striker, usually each player prefers his own strikers
- carrommen (called also coins)
- powder
- legs or table to put carrom boards


The carrom board has the official size of the playing area of 29 inches, about 74 cm. 
There are smaller versions for children and beginners usually 20, 23, 26 inches. With small board playing is easier and suitable for learning.


The quality of boards are distinguished by a greater thickness. 
Good thickness involves a perfect plan (and therefore,the game is more accurate), boards with a heavier weight are more stable. 

Good boards have a greater width and height and a good rebound and are more stable.
Hard wood  is preferred.
