Rules and History
The game itself is simple. Each team has 4 bocce balls. First, one player tosses the pallina, ideally about 30 feet from where the players are standing. That same player then throws their bocce ball as close to the pallina as possible.
The next player then tries to throw their bocce ball as closer to the pallina, and/or they try to knock the opposing players ball farther away from the pallina. Teams then take turns throwing the remaining balls. While throwing they are either trying to get their ball closest the pallina, move one of their pallina closer, or move an opponent’s ball farther away.
As far as scoring goes, during each round only one team can score. One point is awarded to each ball a team has closer to the pallina than the opposing teams closest ball. The game goes until one team scores 12 points or a different predetermined score.
