Playing boules is fun. It is played anywhere in
To play boules you will need to find at least 1 friend! You can play one-on-one or in teams of 2 or 3.
You can have for example 3 teams of 2 people. Once you have sorted out the teams take 2 metal ‘boules’ each.
One person will throw the ‘but’ (jack) also called ‘cochonnet’ and each of you have to aim at it. The nearest to the ‘but’ will get a point and the game is over when a team has 13 points.
My advice: make sure you have a tape measure with you in case you are unsure what boule is the closest. It will avoid arguments! We have a telescopic pen measurer which is more precise!
