Evenning Game

| | 24 comments

The game was played on a board of lacquered plywood, normally with a 29 inch (74 cm) square playing surface. The edges of the playing surface are bounded by bumpers of wood. Instead of the balls of billiards games, carrom uses disks (also known as pucks or coins). The object of the game is to strike or flick with a finger a comparatively heavy disk called a "striker" such that it contacts lighter object disks called "carrom men" (alternatively, "carrom seeds") and propels them into one of four corner pockets. The carrom men come in two colors denoting the two players (or, in doubles play, teams). Traditionally, these colors are white (or unstained) and black. The breaker always plays white. An additional carrom man is colored red and called the "queen".

Hi KMF,
I saw your blog on "The dutch" blogs (Dick and B66) so I was wondering...

I can see that you love photograpy and the technic of it, its the photo whats telling the story here on your blog. I like the yellow shine 'walking away' to the back of the horizon, she sharpness the fading away.

Well done, when you are intersted I make a blog with photograpy AND stories, I started for family and now for 'everybody' who is interested, Slowly it becomes a smaller groop of people and we help ech other with photograpy 'On our blogs'

You're welcome to visit my blog.

:) JoAnn
