RE: ot: living quarters/OT Stove

Chris: Carom is a game that is sort of like billiards and marbles all
rolled into one...the board is square and has four corner pockets. Each
player takes turns trying to flick their playing pieces into the
pockets, while knocking the opponent's pieces out of the way. The
playing pieces are round/flat/open in the middle, sort of miniature
napkin rings. That's all about as clear as mud, isn't it? Closest I can
come, sorry!
