I had the experience of seeing this boards being used in a club in the UK during my recent participating in the 7th World Carrom Championships. The boards were really oversized, pockets were standard and so were the carrommen but not the strikers. Strikers were at least 1.5X bigger in diameter than the ICF standard ones. And you don't sit but stand and play. Some countries where this carrom is still being played and popular is Nepal, Bangladesh and perhaps even some parts of India.
Below are some pictures - if you see what I mean.
|Take note of the striker size - HUGE! Gripping it is challenging|
