We recommend to play the game with a maximum of 6 people per court.  If your group is larger we advise you tob ook multiple courts.

Rules of play;

  • Throwing has to be done from the throwing circle. Both feet of the player must be in this circle.
  • The starting player throws the jack.
  • The first player tries to throw the boule as close to the jack as possible.
  • Now it is the turn of the opposite player.  He tries to throw a boule closer tot he jack. This can be done by throwing a boule away from the opposing team or by knocking a boule away from the opposing team.
    • If that succeeds it is the turn of the other team.
    • If that doesn’t work, the same team can continue throwing until it does.
  • When all baalls are tossed it is the turn of the opposite team.
  • When all boules have been played, the winning team scores as many points as the number of balls closer tot he jack than the best boule of the opposing team.
  • The team that won the previous throwing round may start the new throwing round. The throwing circle is repositioned. T
  • he team that is the first to score 13 points is the winning team!
  • If the jack moves out of bounds during play, the game round is played again.
