JEU DES BOULES

GAME MANUAL

Making teams

To play Jeu des Boules you need two teams. Depending on the number of participants, the following layouts are possible:
  • 1 against 1 (Tete-a-Tete), with 3 boules each
  • 2 against 2 (Doublette), with 3 boules each
  • 3 against 2 (Triplette), with 2 boules each

Start the game

The game starts from the throwing circle. Place the throwing circle against the short side of the court and stand with both feet in the circle. Then throw the but (small white ball). The but must be at least one meter from the edges of the track.

Play the game

The first player throws the but from the throwing circle. Then the first player tries to throw the boule as close to the jack as possible. Then the opposing team may try to throw the boule closer to the but. This can be done by throwing the boule closer or by knocking the opponents away.
  • Did it work? Then it is the turn of the other team.
  • Unfortunately, didn’t work? Then the same team can keep throwing until it succeeds. When all your balls have been tossed, it is the turn of the opposing team.
When all boules have been played, the winning team scores as many points as the number of boules closer to the but 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 on the opposite side of the court. If the but moves out of bounds during the game, start a new game. The team that is the first to score 13 points is the winner!
