Carrom: A sport successfully travelled from Dhaka to Zürich

January 26, 2014

SELISE presented a Carrom board to our valued client Ruf Informatik.

Over a cup of coffee no other game we love to play as much as we love to play carrom!! This time, a carrom board has sailed to the office of our valuable Swiss Partner- Ruf Informatik AG. We have heard they are passing a good time playing it and are ready to make it a part of their office culture! Well, we are really happy to be able to do such a small cultural exchange between East and West!

Carrom is an indoor board game which is a unique fusion of eight-ball and shuffleboard which originated centuries ago in India. Carrom can be played in 2, 3 or 4 people and lots of audiences around and it’s not much of a difficulty to dive in as a beginner.

Micha is ready to give the first shot!

A Carrom board has 4 pockets in each corner. You just have to sink the pieces into any of those pockets with a striker by following some straight-forward rules and regulations.

Currently as the rumor passes, we are hearing that the leading Swiss software product company is getting ready to beat us, their development partners in the game during our next visit. See you on the battleground, mates!
