Basic Rules of Boules (Pétanque):
Singles and Doubles - 3 boules per player Triples - only 2 boules per player
Decide which team will start, and any player from that team may begin. Stand with feet together in a small circle and throw the jack (cochonnet—piglet). The same player throws a boule, palm down, to land as close as possible to the jack. A player from the second team throws, trying to get closer to the jack. The team farthest away throws next, and keeps throwing until they get closest. When all boules have been thrown, then scoring takes place. Count the number closer to the jack than your opponents. The winner of that ‘end’ draws a circle at the other end and the game continues. First to reach 13 wins (or whatever number is decided by the organiser).
