Real Carrom

Real Carrom is all set to bring back a unique 3D Carrom board game experience for the digital era! With realistic 3D simulation and intuitive touch controls, you’re sure to be hooked onto the action for hours. Carrom is a popular board game originally from South East Asia, with a concept similar to billiards, pool and shuffleboard where the players have to strike and pocket the carrommen (coins) using a striker of their choice, and the first one to do so with the maximum number of carrommen wins the game. A single red coin known as the queen has to be pocketed and followed by another carromman, if not it will be returned to the center. In case of a draw, the user who pockets the queen wins the match. Available on iOS and Android.
