Surco ''Oranamental'' Carrom Men

Surco ''Oranamental'' Carrom Men - A set of nineteen light wooden or acrylic discs or coins (known as carrom men) - nine white, nine black and one red (known as the Queen). While wooden carrom men are conventional, the recent acrylic or resin alternatives are lighter and less abrasive, thereby facilitating a faster game. The game of Carrom is most easily described as ''finger pool''. Players flick a large weighted disc (the striker) at smaller wooden discs (the carrom-men). The goal is to sink your 9 carrom-men (black or white), as well as the red Queen, in the four corner pockets. The first player or team to accomplish this collects points for the round (commonly called a ''board''). A standard game of Carrom continues until one player has 25 points or 8 boards have been completed. Carrom bears similarities to Pool and Crokinole, but is a fascinating game in its own right with varied strategies and techniques. No one knows exactly where the game originated. It could have come from Bangladesh, Burma, Egypt, or Ethiopia, but most believe it originated in India.
