I pocketed the Queen, and then in the covering strike I pocketed a coin of each player. What happens?

    Can you please tell which game. The "identify-this-game" does not look apropriate here. May 20, 2018 at 10:11
  • Could you confirm the game is indeed Carrom? May 21, 2018 at 11:46

  • @GendoIkari I don't think it's a duplicate of that as it can happen at times when the game isn't ending (the same question with "last coin" would be).

  • @Samthere Ok. The original question said "who will win" so I assumed it was the end of the game; but I know nothing about Carrom.

Under normal circumstances, you count as having covered the Queen, but your opponent has a coin pocketed for free and your turn ends.

If the Striker was pocketed with it, you would pay the penalty for pocketing the Striker and then try to cover it again. However, since you pocketed the opponent's coin, you can't take another turn, so the Queen is put back on the board.

If it was one player's last coin, that player wins.

If it was both players' last coin, you win. If the Striker was pocketed with it, you lose.
