Carrom is a popular stike-and-pocket wooden board game indigenous to South Asia. Usually four players (sometimes in pairs) compete with each other. It resembles billiards and in Karachi you will find people playing its daboo variation in small clubs where tournaments are regularly held. This innovative hexagonal version has been constructed in glass with LED lights so that up to six people can play at night.
