It’s fun, easy to play and can be played almost anywhere there is open space. You and your friends will have a blast!
You play bocce with eight large balls and one smaller ball, which is called the pallino. The large balls come in two colors thus making two teams.
At first, choose a player to throw the pallino. After the pallino is thrown, the same player throws her first bocce ball. The purpose of the game is to get your bocce balls as close as possible to the pallino.
After the first player has thrown her first bocce ball, she is considered closest because her ball is closer to the pallino than any of the balls. All other players are considered away. All away players will take turns throwing their bocce balls until they have a ball closer to the pallino than the previous closest player. A team or player gets a point for every ball that is closer to the pallino than the closest competitor’s ball.
Play continues to 13 points.
