How to play Pétanque:
Pétanque is a very simple game and easy to understand. The aim of this game is to toss or roll hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet “piglet” while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.
You can play this game between two individual players, teams of two or four as well. In case of two individual players each will get 4 boules while for teams of two and four. They will get 2 boules each and 1 boule per player respectively.
To decide who will go first, players can do this by a simple coin toss. Once the decision is made, the player or any member from the team will stand in the circle and toss the small wooden boules. They can throw it in any direction. Similarly, the players have to toss their boules and try to have it land as close as possible to the small wooden boules.
Likewise, each player will toss their boules close to small wooden boules or try to hit opponent’s boules to steer them away from it. The individual or team having their boules closest to the small wooden boules wins the round. The player or team to reach a grand total of 13 points wins the game.
