Carroms is a free online board game that is similar to pool in many ways. The rules of the game are easy; you try and get the pieces from the centre and into receptacles at the four corners of the tiny table. You get the pieces to move using a master piece called a striker. The pieces, also known as coins float on the board very easily. Each player selects which coins he is going to use by pocketing wither the white or the black first. The first person to finish all his coins and then pocket the red coin wins. The game starts with an aerial view of the board. You can select the perspective or top view. You can also decide whether you want to play against the machine or whether you want to play against another human being. This is great because you can play with your friend or sibling. In order to play, simply move the cursor where you would like to place the striker, then click and pull back. There is a strength indicator which can guide you on how much force you are applying. A line will also appear that will show you which direction you are aiming at. If you have played pool before then you will know just how you should aim. The force and aim are the ones that will determine where the coin will go. If you are very good you can force a coin to push others into the pockets. This kind of shooting will need some practice; then you can ask your friends to come in and play a tournament and see who can be the king of Carroms. This is a special way to spend time with you friends as you try to eliminate each other from a tournament; better still, you can play for a prize that you have all contributed to.
