How Do You Play with These Wooden Rings?

As kids we had these wooden rings and recently I ran across some of them again. I wonder if anyone out there knows how they were played with? Seems like wooden sticks may have been part of the game?

Those great little wooden rings came with Carrom's early board game - similar to a four pocket - square pool table. There was a checker board on one side - and a variety of games that could be played with them. The Carrom board is still available - but the rings are plastic now - so hold on to those oldies!

Thank you and now I remember having the board with the net pockets. Oh if only!

My brother and I used to play this game. Ours were wooden also and we thumped them with our finger to shoot them across the board and knock other Carroms into the pockets.

Can't remember the rules but it was a lot of fun. Seems like the red ones knocked in were 10 points and the greens ones were 5 points. The unpainted ones were used for shooters and the black one was a 25 pointer. We may have made up our own rules.

Anyway, you have some antiques there.
